twin cities, what's good?


Black Garnet is a Black, woman-owned bookstore located in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Our shelves primarily stock Adult and YA contemporary literature by Black and racially-diverse authors. We're incredibly excited to introduce everyone to underrepresented voices and stories, new and old, that support and affirm the cultures they're connected to.

Due to Covid-19, and the uncertainty the future with it holds, Black Garnet is operating mainly through online sales and pop-up shops, with limited hours (by appointment) at our pop-up location in partnership with Merci Tattoo. The ultimate goal is to open a physical space for our community to connect in, with diverse books as the foundation for that connection, in 2021.

To stay up to date on all things store-related, follow our social media or subscribe to our email newsletter.

Thanks for all your support! See you soon.
