>> Sandman Book Co.



OK, some of us are going to date ourselves and our musical proclivities, but the name of this Punta Gorda book store reminds us of a certain head-banging Metallica song that’s now continually looping inside our heads. Independent, locally owned and in business since 2006, Sandman offers plenty of happily ever-after and fairy-tale ending reads among its inventory of 100,000 new and used books, vinyl records (including Metallic, we bet) plus original art, gifts, costumes, Punta Gorda-centric tees, games, toys and puzzles. Oh yeah, the Bridge of Knowledge is a permanent arched art installation created from recycled books. Sandman also hosts book signings and children’s reading hours and its mascot cat has the coolest name ever, Kitty-Wan, 164809 Burnt Store Road, 505-1624.
