#51 Green Apple Books

Another day and another great bookstore.  San Francisco Bay is the best place for a project like this.

Green Apple Books is on the West Side of San Francisco — in the “new” Chinatown.  The store has been around for 42 years.  There are almost no chains in this part of SF, and it’s far enough away from the tourist spots to really feel like you’re just in a neighborhood.  Not too many tourists out here.

At 8,000 square feet, Green Apple Books sells a bit of everything.  They carry new & used books, CDs and DVDs.  They also sell fun sidelines.  It’s a crowded store, but it doesn’t seem like it takes itself too seriously.  Every nook, every shelf, every cranny seems to be carrying some kind of item to sell.  The store is like a bazaar.Masks at green apple

Green Apple seems to be getting a lot of attention for their online productions as well.  Their blog and youtube videos get a lot of buzz and have been good ways to get local customers excited about the store.

This is a great destination shop and easy to get to by public transportation.  The staff seems like a lot of friendly hipsters who know their lit and choose their wares carefully.  Cool and fun to browse.
