For the avid reader and those looking to expand their book collection, Unicorn Bookstore on Providenciales is the place to go with its vast variety of books for both children and adults. Located in Graceway Plaza across from the Graceway IGA Supermarket, Unicorn Bookstore has been open in the Turks and Caicos since the 1990s. Originally located downtown, it moved to its current location in 2004.
The small family-run bookstore is not only home to a wide selection of books organized by subject, but it’s also a reliable go-to for those in search of children’s toys, games, art supplies, gifts, and more. Additionally, Unicorn Bookstore carries new issues of a variety of popular magazine publications.
For those in search of art supplies, the shop offers a selection as diverse as its book collection. Shoppers will find acrylic paints, watercolor paints, pencils of varying intensities along with sketchbooks, palettes and coloring sets to help creatives get their fix. Visitors will also find an array of board games and card games to bring a fresh wave of excitement to family game nights.
If you’re looking for children’s toys or gifts in general, you’ll also find a variety of options to choose from, including tea party sets, dolls, race cars, electronic toys, as well as science kits catered to kids, allowing them to try their hands at their first science experiments. If you’re in search of gifts for adults, usual finds include beach-themed travel mugs, jewelry, journals, and stylish coffee table books.
If you’re shopping for a gift, Unicorn Bookstore makes it easy to walk out of the store with your purchase ready to be gifted with its offering of gift bags, wrapping paper, and greeting cards.
The store also offers seasonal books and gifts, making it the ideal place to find book titles related to popular holidays. During the holiday season, you’ll also find an array of Christmas tree ornaments, holiday-themed wrapping paper, gift bags, and seasonal cards.
House of Unicorn
If you’re staying in the Grace Bay area, you’ll find Unicorn Bookstore’s sister store, House of Unicorn, conveniently located at Saltmills Plaza. Both stores offer a variety of gifts to suit those of all ages, whether you’re shopping for a gift for a newborn, or in search of a classic book title.
House of Unicorn carries similar offerings to its sister store, but with a style of its own. Here, visitors can purchase stylish necessities for the beach, such as handbags and towels. There is also an extensive selection for kids here, although the store’s section of books for more mature readers is not as large as Unicorn Bookstore. Popular titles relevant to the current market are usually available, though.
In an effort to best serve their customers and keep their selections relevant to what’s popular today, Unicorn Bookstore regularly updates its book and toy selections. But if you find the store doesn’t carry a certain book or product you’re looking for, you can simply put in a request with the store, and the team will order it for you.
