Bold City Pop's Holiday Gift Guide: Day Three and Four
My friend Jana came to town yesterday and blog posts were pushed aside until her departure. Life long friends who laugh at all of my jokes deserve one's full attention. Today is a two for one.
Mary Oliver writes poems that make people breathe more deeply and think with clarity. Who in your life doesn't need to do that?
Chamblin's Book Mine sells Mary Oliver's books. Chamblin's is a cathedral of words. There are three different stores in Jacksonville. Book lovers in your life would rather have five used books than one new one. Trust me. Mary Oliver is there. And Wendell Berry.
My Mom loves poetry and natural remedies. This Christmas she is getting gifts from Chamblin's and Southern Roots Apothecary. Southern Roots Apothecary sells tinctures and healing mixtures. Their products are made in small batches with naturally sourced ingredients. Mariah says, "The hand salves are made with oils I infused with various healing herbs, beeswax, and love. All of the ingredients are organic. I am also available for herbal, dietary, and yoga consultations."
It is so easy to shop local in Jacksonville, FL. Have you ordered your Chocolate Chess Pie yet. I'm on my way to pick up mine!
