Online Gift Shop and Bookstore

Gift Shop

Our online giftshop is currently hosting our Virtual Christmas Market Event!


The Watson’s Mill used bookstore is a volunteer-run project that benefits Watson’s Mill. A hallmark of our institution, volunteers spend hundreds of hours taking in donated books of all genres and offering them to the public for a small cost. This project helps books stay out of landfills and into the hands of loving readers!
