Storytime every Saturday at 10:30am! The Frugal Frigate is an independent children’s bookstore located in Historic Downtown Redlands, California. The Frugal Frigate has been a part of the community for over 30 years, established in 1988. In our brick & mortar location, we proudly offer the best in both new titles and beloved favorites of children’s literature.
