IN-STORE SHOPPING

Walk-In shopping: We are open for walk-in shopping and not limiting the number of customers inside. Until children can be vaccinated, everyone entering must wear a mask — even if you have been vaccinated. Forgot your mask? Don’t worry, we have some at the counter.

HOURS:
M-Sat: 10 am – 6 pm
Sun: 11 am – 4 pm

SEARCH OUR INVENTORY

Nothing beats the experience of coming into our bookstore, but if you either don’t live in Sacramento, don’t want to come in, or just want to see if we have a book in stock, we make it easy to find everything we’re carrying in the shop — and 12 million books in print — in our online store

CURBSIDE PICKUP

We offer curbside pickup or quick in-store grab ‘n go. For curbside pick-up, pull up in front of the Crest Theatre (off of the light rail tracks/yellow area) and call 916-492-6657. We’ll run your bag out to your car. Or come into the store to pick up your order that we’ve said is ready. 

LOCAL DELIVERY

We offer free delivery if you are within a 4-mile radius of the store with purchase of $25 or more. There will be a $2 fee for Sacramento neighborhoods outside of 4 miles (fee waived for orders totaling more than $35). Expect limited delivery days to Carmichael, Rancho Cordova, or Fair Oaks. No apartment complexes. 

NATIONWIDE SHIPPING

Orders over $30 and under 15 lbs ship for free throughout the U.S. We ship via USPS using Media Mail, which can take 10-14 days to arrive to its destination.

RESERVE THE LOUNGE

Our bookstore is the perfect unusual space to reserve for a party, wedding, holiday office gathering, or informal meeting.

As authors and publishers begin to schedule in-person events again, we’re excited to start hosting them. We offer authors limited in-person events that are a hybrid of having your audience in our bookstore and live streaming it to those who cannot make it or choose to not be gathering yet. 

If you are an author interested in having us host your event, click the button below to tell us about your book. Our events coordinator will respond to your request shortly.

Flamingo Book Club

Each month, our booksellers select a great book. We typically hold a bookclub discussion the third Sunday of every month at 2pm in our upstairs Flamingo Lounge. We’d love for you to join us!

We’ve begun the process of renovating our basement to become a third floor of the store. We’ll be calling this floor Another Universe. That floor will sell Science Fiction & Fantasy books, adult and kid graphic novels, an expanded games section, toys, Magic the Gathering cards, and Pokemon cards. We’ll have game tables set up for tournaments and game demonstrations.

For now, you can see and buy our Magic cards in our online store or while in-person shopping. Magic cards are both on the first and second floors right now.
