a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Now I'll preface this by saying I haven't lived in the Bay Area since '01, so these are spots I know about (and they're still there, I visited in March):
Needles and Pens is a great zines/craft store in the Mission:
3253 16th Street (btwn Guerrero & Dolores) (415) 255-1534 | OPEN DAILY 12pm-7pm
Bound Together Books, old school anarchist bookstore in the Upper Haight:
1369 Haight St (415) 431-8355 Open Daily 11:30am-7pm
Modern Times, another great bookstore in the Mission:
888 Valencia St (415) 282-9246
City Lights in North Beach. Okay, I haven't been in there in years, so I don't know what their zine selection is like. But it is steeped in SF history, a place where Jack Keroauc hung out and all.
261 Columbus Ave (415) 362-8193
If you make it across the Bay, the Long Haul in Berkeley is a great old info-shop. They're located near the Ashby BART station.
3124 Shattuck Ave Berkeley, CA 94705 (510) 540-0751
You're welcome. But who's a "little lady?"
