For the past twenty years, Frugal Muse Books, Music & Video has been a valuable community hub for book lovers, music and movie aficionados, gamers and creative people of all stripes--people who gravitate to our unique and welcoming environment to browse the cross-pollination of new and gently used gems as well as attend Book Signings and Open Mic's and Trivia Nights. Our customers delight in being able to recycle their gently used items in exchange for the things they really want. Purchased in June of 2014 by Paul and Robyn Garrison, Frugal Muse is now truly local and independent, renewing our commitment to remaining not just a great bookstore but also a genuine community center where there's always something exciting happening.
