Black Swan Books is independent used book store, with an eclectic collection of antique and rare books on display in the front window. This is not the type of used bookstore where you can pick up a cheap copy of last months top ten best seller, but more of a uniquely curated mix of old books and antique collectables from all ages. It's definetly worth peeking into the store and taking a look around, even if it's just to marvel at a set of century old cigarette cards or admire the assortment of art prints. 

It's at 4236 Piedmont Ave in the Piedmont Avenue 'hood.

(510) 428-2881
