Founded in 1975 by Betty Takeuchi, San Marino Toy and Book Shoppe has served generations of San Gabriel Valley families. Our book collection includes best sellers, new releases, local authors and illustrators, graphic novels and board books. We also offer classic toys and games as well as on trend novelties and plush.
From the creators of Every Picture Tells A Story...! Art Kandy has something for every taste... children's book art, art from classic movies, comics, vintage art and toys and so much more. We're sweet on your favorite illustrators, too... Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak, David Shannon, Garth Williams and many others.
We began as a ‘mobile bookstore’, and our ever-growing book collection now holds thousands of titles, all available either in person, or from our online selection. The Classics, old and new, are our first love, but current non-fiction that leans towards social justice, historical facts, and world cultures remain a staple in our collection. We have traveled the world, particularly London, Paris, and Berlin to bring back World Classics and fascinating finds from other lands. Our book collection is special because it is hand picked with our unique customers in mind.
