If you can believe it, Mr. Pickwick's was the best time I had the Blue Mountains. I was on the lower level for over two hours just looking at all their books which is an amazing collection and the cost very reasonable. I needed something...More

Wow! There are some real hidden treasures in this store. I managed to pick up some comics I knew would go well with my existing collection. Definitely value for money, and definitely worth a look. You never know what you might find hiding in there.

This place is pretty much heaven to me. Amazing antiques and vintage clothes and downstairs is mostly books. I got a first edition Christina Stead and my partner got a beautiful velvet jacket. I could have stayed all day.

A must do while in Katoomba. Mr Pickwicks has a range of memories and antiques covering three centuries from tribal native overseas and local cultures to toys and games from England and Australia. An eighty year old could possibly find something they played with as...More

What a fantastic store. It is so big and packed with everything. Clothes, figurines, glassware, books, furniture, toys and so much more. It was organised and very clean. Lots of room to get around and a very popular place.
