We’ve seen a strong trend in the past few years for alternative memorial items for funerals and prayer services. People are choosing to send gift items that will last well beyond the traditional cut floral bouquet. We’ve gathered a lovely collection of stepping stones, angels, inspirational frames, etched wind chime and more. These are a moving way to express your condolences to the family and give them a lasting memory of their loved one. Call us or stop at the store and we’ll help you pick out the perfect gift. We also recommend gift certificates for trees, shrubs or flowers to be planted as memorials.

We have a wide variety of other interesting titles that cover everything from Do-It-Yourself craft projects, birding, and plant care to decorating your home.
