If you enjoy putting pen to paper, buy your cards here. Antigone has a beautiful selection. I also enjoyed their selection of tea towels, and other gifts. I haven't laughed that hard in a while.

Wandered into this bookstore and spent a great amount of time there. Besides books, the store has great stationery, games, and all types of items that would make great gifts for people of any age. Store is 100% powered by solar energy.
