Tecolote Book Shop

Last weekend, I stopped by Tecol0te Book Shop in the upscale community of Santa Barbara known as Montecito. I've recently learned that Tecolote Book Shop has been in business some 80+ years! I love supporting independent bookstores and in the Santa Barbara community it seems that independent bookstores are the only brick and mortar bookstores in town since Borders and Barnes & Noble have left the scene.

Tecolote Book Shop is a small, quaint bookstore with lots of charm and friendly staff. Tecolote Book Shop has the latest hardback books for sale, fiction and nonfiction paperbacks, a nice sized children's and young adult section, and small travel section. Tecolote Book Shop also periodically offers author/book signing events.
