General Info:
Maria's Bookshop is located on historic Main Avenue, in downtown Durango, Colorado. Proudly serving the Durango community since 1984, Maria's Bookshop is a locally-owned, independent business. Co-owners Andrea Avantaggio and Peter Schertz--along with their two children, Evan and Lydia--are longtime Durango residents, avid unicyclists and champions for our local community. A full-service general bookstore, Maria's Bookshop carries an inventory of nearly 40, 000 books on custom-made wooden bookshelves in 2200 square feet of retail space. Antique snowshoes, skies, and sleds as well as some beautiful work by local artists hang from our walls. We have a staff of fourteen dedicated booksellers, and a large and loyal clientele from the local community of about 45, 000. Maria's Bookshop sponsors over 100 active local reading groups, hosts dozens of special events a year, and helps support several local non-profit organizations. We are proud to be a long-standing community resource. Oddly enough, there has never been a Maria who has worked at Maria's Bookshop. In fact, the store's namesake is master potter Maria Martinez of the San Ildefonso pueblo, whose beautiful designs inspired the bird that is our store's logo.

Great Independent Bookstore!

Maria's is a Durango institution. Great in-stock inventory and very knowledgeable staff. Staff-recommended books are highlighted throughout the shop. Excellent inventory of local interest books.
