An independent bookstore for kids isn’t common. Opened in 1901, the bookstore’s character has become somewhat historic. It has been serving as the neighbourhood bookstore for all of Potrero Hill, making it a popular landmark. It has a little bit of everything, but it has a LOT of children’s literature. The collection is carefully curated, and of high quality. The customer service is impeccable.
