Did you know that several churches in the Memphis area have Book/Gift stores inside? Some even have libraries - and some allow non-members to use their library!
I was recently at just such a bookstore: The Bookmark, located inside the front door of Second Presbyterian Church. In addition to a great selection of books, they have an AMAZING line of gift items for all occassions (did you know next week is Teacher Appreciation Week?)! The fun thing about shopping in these lesser-known stores is that you can almost guarentee that what ever gift you buy, the recipient is not likely to get a duplicate gift. Of course, as avid 'savers', sometimes the bottom line is 'price'. You can bet these little shop's prices are very competitive - and a lot of times cheaper!
For fun, I took some pics around the store (with the store manager's permission). Here's a nugget of what you can find atTthe Bookmark:
|Willow Tree Angels (I love them) and other items on clearance|
|Stuff for the kids|
Next time you need to buy a gift, consider checking with a local church for a gift shop! If your church has a store in it, please feel free to mention it in the comment section of this post :)
If you are interested in stopping by The Bookmark, they are located inside Second Presbyterian Church:
4055 Poplar Ave
Memphis, TN 38111
I'd like to thank The Bookmark staff for allowing me to come in and take pics!
