“The Piggery is Northland’s largest secondhand bookshop, with everything from Romance to Maori literature.”

The Piggery - Whangarei, NZ

The Piggery was once, well, a Piggery; the outhouse which was at Whangarei Heads was initially used as overspill storage for the then owner’s Auckland store and locals soon learned to “peruse the piggery” for secondhand books.

Although it may have changed address and owners, the store remains true to its origins and is the perfect place if you fancy spending the day lost in aisles and aisles of old books.
