Southern California’s Oldest and Largest Independent Bookstore
Most of us know Vroman’s Pasadena. It’s where we buy birthday gifts, good books, grab coffee, browse and get lost in the hundreds of unique cards. (yes they engrave and print)
This Pasadena staple, is located in the heart of the Playhouse District right on Colorado Blvd.
As you walk through their doors, you will be conscious of the seasons and the holidays we love.
Vroman’s offers book critiques which I find so helpful when I need a bit of help.
As you complete the browsing of the first floor, with little sections from Yoga to Animals and
Gardening interests, you will see a staircase that beckons to explore.
This is where you will find all manner of children’s books, throw pillows, soft cuddly animals, games and puzzles of the unique sort. This section allows for children to play and build castles and sit while a book is read to them.
Before you leave, you will notice a section, a sort of private area where one could promote a new book,
a group which will allow for others to gather and exchange ideas.
Vroman’s promotes a small town community atmosphere and for that reason,
we should embrace all that she offers to our city. Thank You Vroman’s
