News & What to Look for in July

Our own photographer, Jessica Gray, has just taken 3rd place in the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival Photo Contest! Congratulations Jessica! By the way, if you live in the Salem area, Jessica is setting up a new studio location and is offering photo shoots for $100.00 (each sitting) before the big move. This is a bargain price! Hurry and schedule your appointment, this offer won't last long.

We've already spoiled the surprise by announcing our next featured author, Shelby K. Morrison, but we will be revealing more about her and her new book, From the Ashes in the coming month. You won't want to miss this. Meanwhile, you can download your copy of From the Ashes as well as her first novel, Shattered, from our website today!

What to look for in July:
Aside from the amazing fireworks display that we always enjoy in our beautiful town of Lakeside, Oregon, we have shipments coming in. Hand Made Greeting Cards, Jewelry, Seat Belt Wraps, more books and other unique gifts.

It's so nice to send a one-of-a-kind card. Or give a gift that can't be duplicated. Or receive a compliment on a pair of irreplaceable earrings. The pride of owning something that wasn't made by a machine, but rather labored over with careful, thoughtful hands. They may be similar at times, but never exactly alike. That is the beauty of hand-made products.

And speaking of beauty, we happen to have a complete line of face and body creams made with all natural ingredients. The healing effects of Judy's Kissed by Mother Nature Products will have you hooked. Contact us to learn how to get a free sample.

Morrison Books will be displaying more and more of these one-of-a-kind items in the coming weeks. We are so excited to share the new talent we've discovered. What was once only enjoyed by local Oregonians is now being offered World Wide!

We are selecting from some of the most talented and unique crafts that we encounter on our trek across the state of Oregon (both on foot and on-line). The only exception to the "Local talent rule," is our authors who are coming from all over the United States. This is not a rule we regret breaking.

Don't forget, if you have a talent you'd like to share, please go to our submissions page and let us see your work.

Thank you for your interest in our bookstore. Please visit us often.
