Operated by a retired couple in the Kam Tin neighbourhood, this cosy and snug venue is not only a bookstore but a creative space for the duo to share their hobbies as well. Those hobbies include tie-dying, ceramic works and woodwork. The couple also runs a farm next door and encourages visitors to bring in a book or two in return for a homecooked meal or some organic produce they’ve grown themselves. Beibei hosts irregular classes and workshops ranging from sourdough baking, pottery and even mindfulness, demonstrating how there’s more to life post-retirement.
