The Secret Garden Bookshop


We are a full-service, general bookstore, featuring books for everyone, with a particular specialty in children's books.

In 2017, we celebrated 40 years of independent bookselling, a huge milestone for this brick-and-mortar independent bookstore, which continues to expand its programming throughout the community including author events, school bookfairs, and cultural events throughout the city.

Located in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, the Secret Garden is within walking distance of cafes, galleries, shops, and, of course, coffee, in every direction! Our knowledgeable staff includes longtime booksellers, and avid young adult and general readers alike, ready to help you select books for yourself or for gifts. We also offer free giftwrapping, discounts for book clubs and educators, shipping services, and easy special orders.
