Gift certificates - How to purchase one!

Greetings readers! I process all gift certificate orders manually in the shop.  To purchase a gift certificate in the amount of your choice for use at the Green Hand Bookshop, if you are not able to come to the shop's Congress Street location, you can still do one of the following: 1.  Call the shop at (207)253-6808 during regular business hours.  I am usually here 11:00-6:00 Tues-Sat.  I will take your credit card number over the phone and process the purchase for you.  I can mail the gift certificate to you or the recipient for free, or the happy recipient...

Videos - What's the Green Hand Bookshop all about?

You can find a number of little videos on our YouTube Channel!  Some of them are about the shop in general, and some are about my favorite genres: mystery, horror, and SF/Fantasy.  Enjoy!  :) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC7XB5ps5W7WSEGS6Gmt07g Plus there are some videos from when we had more space in the shop and would occasionally have live music and/or art shows on First Friday.  Those days are gone (too many bookcases now!) but they were awfully fun while they lasted.  :) Here are The Watchers playing at our 1-year anniversary party in November 2010: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQ_FSyCwuFk ...and again, The Watchers playing at the First...
