Welcome To Our Ketchum Sun Valley Bookstore and Cafe!



Welcome to Sun Valley's Iconoclast Books & Cafe - New, Used, Rare and VERY Independent! Our beautiful setting features over 3000 square feet filled with books and gifts and will encourage your intellectual curiosity. We pride ourselves on being unique and going beyond the bestseller selection. We offer a fabulous Hemingway and Idaho History selection, Sun Valley Writers' Conference titles, The Sun Valley Center for the Arts, and The Cabin's event selections as well as our next door neighbor, The Community Library. Come in for book club recommendations, magazines, gifts, stationery, candles, educational games & toys, and more. Our iconoclastic booksellers will make your visit worth leaving home for!

We specialize in unique cards, gifts, candles, and jewelry and host the area's largest children's section--from baby gifts & board books to a phenomenal young adult selection, with everything in between.

We host author events, poetry slams, live music events, open mic nights, book club discussions, and educational events. We support our schools and non-profit organizations and love to engage with other indies.

Our cafe features locally-roasted Grace Organics coffee, local organic dairy, house-made chai, organic teas, smoothies, fresh baked goodies, bagels, home made soup, quiche, paninis, and salads. We are a Mom and Pop store with big-city flare. The New York Times says this is THE place to hang when you're in Sun Valley!
