For all of the six years Edward and Eva Borins have owned Garcia Street Books, the store has been voted Best of Santa Fe. This year, the little bookstore on Acequia Madre has expanded its influence to include major charity benefits around town. “We’ve been very successful, and now we want to give back to the community,” Edward Borins says.

In addition to running book sales at Lannan Foundation readings, raising money for local causes and hosting book signings for local and national authors, the store also stocks hundreds of titles of local and international interest, and has a selection of art books rarely seen outside a specialty shop. How do they stock such a varied and eclectic array of books? “We can buy what we want to buy,” Borins says. “Our customers realize the importance of supporting an independent bookstore.”
