The Frugal Frigate is an independent children’s bookstore located in Historic Downtown Redlands, California. Locally owned, The Frigate continues to pick the freshest titles in children’s literature for more than 30 years. We offer a refreshing selection of books for children and young adults (including everything from board books and picture books for the little ones to novels and classics for the older ones) plus sidelines, swag, a build-a-friend workshop, and all sorts of things to stir the imagination!
The Frugal Frigate is located in the original Redlands carriage house/pony stable. Built in 1904, the bookstore’s brick walls, wooden beams and ceilings, and iconic skylight, offer visitors a look into Redlands’ rich history.

In a nutshell, books are an inexpensive journey of the imagination taking you anywhere you want to go.
Enjoy the voyage!
