Dog Eared Books is a eclectic independent bookstore located in the Mission. Dog Eared Books is the largest of three stores that are under the same ownership — the other two bookstores are Red Hill Books and Phoneix Books.
Formerly, Dog Eared Books was located at 1173 Valencia Street between 23rd and 24th Streets (where Scarlet Sage is now). Kate Rosenberger says she picked the former location because a large red heart had been painted on the window for years. They moved into their current 20th Street location in 1996.
