Welcome To Our Store on historic River St, in beautiful Elk Rapids. It is our desire to bring a unique experience to Up North visitors as well as local residents.

As our name implies, we Love Words, and believe they have great power. We honor that belief by selling products that bring joy through words. Whether it be books, journals, stationary, wax seals, mugs, or wall art, we have unique gift options for any age.

Simply Stated...

We find beauty in simple things.
A leather bound journal, reclaimed barnwood framed signs, our DIY Quote Bar, Michigan made jarred candles - simple and unique finds to complement any lifestyle.
