Welcome to Russian Hill Bookstore

Russian Hill Bookstore, established in 1974, is one of the few independently-owned used and new bookstores still operating in San Francisco.  We began as Sunset Bookstore in 1974, a small used bookshop in the Sunset District west of 19th Avenue, and have been in continual operation for the past 48 years. Over the years Sunset Bookstore has since closed and merged with Russian Hill Bookstore, which now features incredible note cards, gifts, children’s toys, and board games in addition to our books.

We hope you’ll visit us soon!
