Bookman's is a one-stop shop for all things entertainment. Not only do they have stacks upon stacks of books, but they also resell video games, DVDs, magazines, collectibles and even musical instruments. The prices are amazing as the selection, which is mostly secondhand. The indoor cafe only adds to this bookstore's charm and if you can't make it here, there are other locations in Phoenix and Tucson.
Each week, this downtown book seller selects a different subject area and features books of that genre at half-off the regular price. The owners carry a full range of subjects, from local history and culture to national best sellers. You'll also find a good selection of cards, calendars and magazines here. If you don't immediately find what you're looking for, be sure to ask one of the friendly staff members; they'll help you locate the desired material, or will try to find it for you elsewhere.

Historic Flagstaff was established around the railroad, so there's no more appropriate place to start your downtown tour than the visitor's center located in a railroad station. When the rails subsided, this logging town grew around Route 66, but visitors can still see plenty of historic features that centered around these two different means of transportation. Don't miss the 1888 Babbitt Brothers Trading Company building (constructed in a Renaissance Revival style), the Spanish Colonial Hotel Monte Vista and the 1920's Weatherford Hotel. Many restaurants, bars and shops in this area also retain the charm and nostalgia of yesteryear. A couple of local spots include Flagstaff Brewing Company and Beaver Street Brewery.
Rainbow’s End focuses on all colors of the spectrum within the variety of women’s clothes it sells. From bright, sometimes garish prints to more subdued, staid colors, there is usually some type of garment suitable for work or play. In addition to clothing, the shop also sells accessories, hats, shoes and other gift items.
The Old Town Shops are located in historic downtown Flagstaff and they offer a varied array of wares, entertainment and restaurants. Each one of the stores is unique, independently-owned and a cool place to buy a gift or trinket for the home. The Sage Brush Trading Co. sells travel gear and accessories, P.J. Chilcottage has toiletries and soaps, Black Hound Gallerie vends books and art, Basement Marketplace plies clothes and Flagstaff Chocolate bakes cocoa. The restaurants include Diablo Burger, Uptown Pubhouse and Bigfoot Bar-B-Q, each one is just like the shops, unique and local.
Black Hound Gallerie is a locally-owned store that primarily sells women's clothing as well as cool, one-of-a-kind gifts. It's located inside the Old Town Shops, a collection of restaurants and eclectic shops along Leroux Street. Not all of BHG's wares are for women, they also sell trinkets and men's fashion as well.
P.J. Chilcottage is one of the coolest spots along Leroux Street. It's technically located in the Old Town Shops, an area of town built around unique and independently owned storefronts. Inside P.J., the range of products is eclectic and local, from handmade soaps and cards to women's clothing and homewares, there is something for everyone.
Every town needs a good place to find retro fashion at a great price, and fortunately for Flagstaff, Incahoots fits the bill. Fashion from all eras are featured, the 70's, 80's and even as far back as (faux) turn-of-the-century. Incahoots also provides surplus finds typical of vintage stores, but in addition to this, it also functions as a great place to get your costumes for Halloween or other events.
It's not only shoes they sell here, so don't let the name of the shop fool you. Inside, you'll find women's clothing, jewelery and accessories that fit that rugged Northern Arizona style. Items like hiking sandals, parkas and boots, but everything is still stylish. The prices are a bit high, however the quality of materials and designers merits the price tag. It's conveniently located downtown Flagstaff and within walking distance from many hotels and other lodging.
