Owner, book lover, and entrepreneur Sandra Dear opened up her book shop in July 2017. After having worked in the publishing industry for over 15 years, Sandra wanted to bring her own bookshop dream to fruition. Since Bayonne was missing an independent bookstore, she saw the perfect opportunity.

“Everywhere I went, I saw kids and adults connected to electronic devices. As someone from the publishing industry I knew I had to do something to keep print alive in my community, it was time to make reading fun again,” Sandra said.

The Little Boho Bookshop is not your average book shop, either. It’s got a cozy ambiance, which gives customers that perfect relaxing vibe to escape reality {when they can physically visit, of course}.

The shop offers a range of genres of books focused on kids, pre-teens, and young adults. You can search for the entire inventory through its online store, which has 7 million titles to sort through.

Book clubs are hosted there, and there are always fun events whether it is a kid’s storytime or birthday party, a pop-up from a local artist, or author meet-and-greets. Boho Bookshop is so much more than just a cozy, well-stocked place to purchase your latest read, it is a community center. Sandra created a space where any type of reader could find something to indulge in, and more importantly, a space where everyone is welcome.
