Used bookseller was a friend to customers
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
One of the bonuses of living in a big city is the small bookstore.
The very small used bookstore.
The kind where the aisles are narrow, book-lined shelves reach from floor to ceiling, and handwritten notes denote whether they are history, romance, mystery or for children.
The kind of place where there are always boxes of more books, spine up, on every available surface waiting for sorting.
The kind Olive NAVIS ran for 32 years.
First on Yonge St. (near Lawrence Ave.), then on Avenue Rd., the Handy Book Exchange attracted customers from near and far, and that is more than a cliché. NAVIS had regulars from the United States, North Bay and the Beach. Most became her Friends. Long before there were coffee bars on every corner, her coffee pot was always on.
She had treats for all the dogs. One customer once tried to avoid the bookstore -- she was in a hurry that particular day -- and crossed the street. But her dog balked and refused to move. The woman had to cross back over Avenue Rd. and stop at the store to appease her pet.
There are at least 10,000 books in the store -- although NAVIS's son, Gord, believes there are probably more like 20,000 to 30,000 books when you count those in the basement.
Nothing was or is computerized -- NAVIS used to keep track of her books in her head or in a series of small pads of paper in which she would record the author's name, every book he or she'd written and the number of copies she had.
Her good friend Carole NELLES, who has run the store during the past couple of years when NAVIS has been too ill to come in, used to call her at home three times a day, on the pretext of locating a book.
"I did it to keep her part of it," NELLES said. "Say someone wanted Leon Uris's Trinity, she'd say 'Go downstairs, walk straight to the bathroom, turn left at the boxes. Lift the top box and it's there.' She was always right."
NAVIS, the mother of two sons, always referred to NELLES as the daughter she never had. There was real love between the two, which started when they bonded over books and cigarettes smoked by the back door and grew when NELLES, a nurse working in London, Ontario, began spending more and more time in the bookstore when she was back in Toronto on her days off.
Together they cleaned up the books -- NAVIS called it their "spit and polish" day -- fixing broken spines with coloured magic markers, coating the covers with Mylar so they shone once more. "It was a lot of fun," NELLES recalled. "It's amazing what you can do."
NAVIS was fun, too. She kept a favourite cartoon near the cash "Going into a bookstore and buying one book is like going to McDonald's and buying one French fry." She collected jokes, filling 10 scrapbooks with them. She would foist copies of jokes on her customers.
She also handed out small notebooks, telling her customers to write down every book they read to avoid duplications.
"I was the bane of Olive's existence," said Enid RICHARDSON. "She would explain to me -- over and over -- that when books came out in their second printing, often their covers were different colours. 'Enid, this is one you have already read,' she would say. She gave me two notebooks to write my books down. I never used them."
For the last few years she was in the store, she refused to let RICHARDSON pay for books. RICHARDSON and her late husband, Jack, often drove her home from her shop -- NAVIS loathed using taxis and could never understand why a short trip from the store to Wanless Crescent could cost $7.
And until ill health stopped her, NAVIS was always at her store. It was officially closed Mondays, but she would be there anyway working on inventory. She absolutely loved being there. After her husband Borden died in 2001, her home was just a place to sleep. The store was always her real home.
Olive CHABAN was born and raised in Winnipeg. She married Borden NAVIS, a hometown Ukrainian boy and talented graphic artist in Winnipeg in 1938 and the two moved to Toronto. Sons Gord and Al were born 11 years apart; the family always lived with Borden's parents. Father and son owned the house jointly, but it was NAVIS's mother-in-law, whom neighbourhood kids called Queen Mary, who ruled it.
"My mother came from an abusive home -- so she never fought and maybe had one or two confrontations with my Dad during all those years," Gord NAVIS recalled. And so she was always polite to her mother-in-law, even going home to make lunch for her every day she worked at the bookstore.
NAVIS worked for a Yonge St. bookstore, then for Simpson's department store variously as a model, white-gloved elevator attendant, and in their book section. No one in the family is too sure about when she went to work for Tom MERCHANT, who owned the Handy Book Exchange on Yonge St. near their home.
She took over the store in 1974 after MERCHANT died. NELLES said she had been in the process of buying the business with weekly payments culled from the sale of handicrafts -- crocheted toilet paper covers and the like -- she made and sold in the store.
"It was a cute little store, a half-width store," recalled Gord NAVIS, and it thrived under the combination of NAVIS's personality, her knowledge of books and her coffee pot.
The family opened up the second location on Avenue Rd. in 1982 for son Al to operate. Ten years later, she moved into that store, when Al started a rare book and first edition business in Thornhill.
She was always happy in her store. She had a knack for finding just the right book -- especially for younger readers, whom she doted on. That doesn't mean she made money -- far from it, possibly because she was so generous about the credit she gave people for the used books they brought her.
"With Ollie, some customers brought 10 cartons of books. She'd give a credit of $1 per paperback. One man had a credit for $250," NELLES said.
Her eyesight began failing -- she developed cataracts -- but NAVIS kept going to the store until 2003, when she suffered an accidental fall at home. She died early on November 9 at age 89. NELLES opened the store that day in her honour. Her picture is still in the window and by the cash is a book for customers to sign. Many have.
"You gave me a googly-eyed pencil," wrote one young reader. "You were the first friend I made when I moved here," wrote another. And one person spoke for hundreds of customers when he wrote: "You were a touchstone in my reading life."

CHAFFEY, George, 1932 -- Died This Day
Engineer born in Brockville, Ontario, on January 28, 1848.
The son of a successful shipbuilder, he was raised in Kingston, Ontario Taken out of school because of ill health, he read extensively and was largely self-taught. In his teens, he worked on one of his father's lake steamers and was certified as an engineer. At 21, he began designing a series of 20 fast, large-capacity freighters for his father. In 1880, on a trip to Southern California, he became interested in irrigation. In 1882, with his brother, William, he formed the Etiwanda Irrigation Colony, the first Californian settlement watered by a system of cement pipes, and founded the community of Ontario, California. He also installed dynamos on one of his dams and provided Los Angeles with its first electric light. He eventually became president of the Los Angeles Electric Company. Of Ontario, California., The Brockville Recorder in 1914 said: "Thirty years ago, a stretch of desert, covered by cactus and sagebrush, inhabited only by quail, jackrabbits and their kind: today the beautiful, smiling town of Ontario, hundreds of freight cars bearing away the golden harvests of the orchards and the product of the town's factories. Ontario is the 'model colony' -- the pride not alone of San Bernardino County, but all of Southern California." In 1886, the government of Australia persuaded him to introduce irrigation to the Murray Valley. In return for vast land grants, he and his brother made Mildura, Victoria, an important centre for irrigated fruit-growing. Later, unresolved political disputes and a bank failure resulted in bankruptcy and he returned to United States to successfully irrigate the Colorado Desert. He last turned his attention to banking and restored his wealth.

CHAFFEY, Sir William Benjamin, 1926 -- Died This Day
Businessman born in Brockville, Ontario, on 21 October 1856
After growing up in Brockville, he moved with his brother, the engineer George CHAFFEY, to California in 1878 where they converted desert areas into fruit-growing farm land. Later, they founded the settlement of Ontario, now a thriving community on the outskirts of Los Angeles. At the end of 1885, he followed his brother to Australia. There they applied their irrigation skills to areas of the Murray Valley and helped found the towns of Mildura and Renmark. For political reasons beyond their control, the communities failed and George returned to California. William stayed on, gradually paying off his debts and eventually becoming the town elder. He was the founding president of the Australian Dried Fruits Association and served several terms as mayor of Mildura. He was knighted in 1924.
