We curate a monthly themed gift guide to thank our customers for shopping local. The gift guide is made up of donated products from our makers and launched through social media. The winner picks up the gifted products in store.


NOOKS REWARDS

We offer rewards to our customers for shopping local. Customers earn stamps for every purchase they make at a retail nook location. Once their card is full they may redeem a hand-made gift from a participating nookie.
