Gift Certificates

The Friends' Bookstore sells gift certificates in amounts from $2.00 to $25.00.  The gift certificates make great gifts, something that may interest you during this holiday season.  In addition to books, the Bookstore carries tee-shirts, canvas bags, music CDs, and magazines. The person redeeming doesn't have to spend the gift certificate all at once.  The store can keep a running total on the back of the gift certificate so that the recipient can use your gift multiple times.

Shown are the winter-themed gift certificates. The Bookstore has several styles available. Just ask in the store!
