Our story

Welcome to Sscarlet’s Web Bookstore!

We are a Black Woman independently owned bookstore that was founded August 2020 in Brooklyn, NY. We are currently online-based, but do pop-ups in the New York City area.

Our owner has always loved reading books and obtaining knowledge of all kinds, but struggled to find books written by authors of color front and center in one central location. She wanted to create a space that celebrated beauty, creativity, and greatness in written form, thus Sscarlet’s Web Bookstore was born.

Our mission is to offer books from well-known and unknown authors alike that will allow you to learn, love, laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.

Our bookstore is a place that creates a space to honor authors, shine a spotlight on authors of color, and put them front and center in the hearts and minds of our readers.

At Sscarlet's Web Bookstore we have books from all genres and hope you find your favorite authors and discover new ones.

Like the Ethiopian Proverb states, “When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion.” Let us unite and celebrate the beauty of the written word!

 Stay Learning! Stay Reading! 


How we give back?

We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to plant trees!

One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.

For every book sold, we will plant one tree through One Tree Planted.
