About Us

Three Four Knock on the Door sells beautiful books and toys in Port Melbourne. It is the brain child of sisters L-J and Danielle. We opened our doors on 11th January 2011 (rather auspicious we felt!) and we’ve been growing ever since.

From its concept we both knew the cornerstones of our shop would be:

  • education
  • quality
  • service
  • community orientated

Our customers continue to inspire and amaze us. We have developed some beautiful relationships and look forward to continuing these in the coming year. It is you, our customer, which inspires us to keep looking for unique books and to continue hosting our ever growing events schedule.


What does 2018 hold for us? It's hard to say. Of course we'll be running the Annual events (Harry Potter Sleepover and Lego Competition). To celebrate May 4th we'll be holding a very cool Star Wars Sleepover.

We will of course keep reading voraciously in order to help you make the best decision you can. You can have a look at our book reviews on the website. We also will be launching a Book Review Club where kids will have the opportunity to get books in advance of publication. Their reviews will be published on our website and our other social media pages.

We expanded our book clubs to seven groups; from prep to young adults (14+) to adults who love to read YA. During the school holidays we'll also be running a Lord of the Rings book club.

We will also continue running storytimes twice a week.
