About Us

Sandcastle Tales is the first indie bookstore in Del Mar. Family-owned and run by Alex & Will Rhett, our local shop offers a curated selection of classic and award-winning children's books, as well as awesome Sand arts and crafts, story time and much more. We are located in the historic Del Mar Village plaza, at the corner of Camino Del Mar and 15th St. next to the beautiful Powerhouse Park & Beach. Along with mom-curated books on many topics ranging from nature to spirituality, we also offer apparel, toys and unique gifts that help kids' imagination reign.
