Browse among our stores to find unique gifts like handmade leather journals, up-cycled cloth gift bags, and hand-painted cards. We also carry a variety of jigsaw puzzles for kids and adults alike.


Speaking of kids, our children’s book sections are a dense, well-curated and much-loved area in all of our stores. You’ve been warned: let your children loose in there and you might not see them again for hours!

Please come by and see us. We should have every book on your list. And if not, we can have it in stock within a couple of days. Bags too full to tote all your purchases home? We can ship books anywhere!
