Faking Sanity is Dawson Creek’s biggest used bookstore, coffee/tea house and now, local yarn shop. Books and knitting are our passion, and caffeine is our addiction!
With over 25,000 books in stock, 35 types of premium loose leaf teas, and an assortment of Kicking Horse coffees/lattes (and other European-style drinks), as well as flavoured hot chocolates and steamers, there’s something for everyone. And of course, no coffee/tea house is complete without an assortment of baked goods, such as our decadent gluten-free cheesecake or our sumptuous carrot cake. All our snacks are fresh and homemade, and we have a few gluten-free options every day, with occasional vegan options as well.
We also sell a variety of gifts for the tea or coffee lover, such as French presses, tea infusers, travel mugs, and of course coffee (whole bean or ground to order) and loose leaf tea.
We carry Knit Picks fixed and interchangeable knitting needles and crochet hooks, and Kollage and ChiaoGoo Twist Red Lace interchangeable needles, as well as a wide assortment of knitting and crochet goodies, such as project bags, yarn bowls, pompoms, stitch markers, shawl pins, wool wash, etc. We have a few wool-free options, a few economical rustic or workhorse yarns in a wide variety of colours, as well as a good selection of hand dyed wools and wool blends, specializing in Canadian yarns and dyers.
