Tin Can Mailman

Arcata, CA

We are a small independent bookstore locally owned and operated on the north coast of California. Tin Can Mailman Used Books is ideally situated just a few miles from both the beach and the redwoods, and just one block from the center square. The store is housed in the original First Bank of Arcata built in 1913. Its beautiful architecture features large windows and skylights and a unique browsing environment. Tin Can Mailman has been selling, buying and trading books since 1972 and offers a diverse selection of books, from various genres of fiction and literature, to the classics, natural history, spirituality, crafts, how-to's and everything else! We cater to an eclectic community of diverse readers; from working professionals and local families to an ever changing population of university students who add both vibrancy and growth to our town and our inventory.
