About meThe Big Idea is a cooperative radical bookstore since 2001 that utilizes a directly democratic, anarchist model. We strive to provide literature that is multicultural, women-positive, queer-positive, class-conscious, anti-militaristic, and that promotes a sustainable world and community. We also hope to serve our community by providing a safe space for all individuals to explore radical and alternative ideas. We are a cooperatively owned and operated, not-for-profit, non-capitalist establishment.

The Big Idea carries hundreds of new books, hundreds of used books, and more pins, patches, stickers, notebooks, greeting cards, and zines than you can shake a stick at. We also offer café seating and free Wi-Fi.
