Owner Kelly Contello has gone through life with a book always in hand and all the stories sewn into the tapestry of her heart. She has forever dreamed of having her very own bookstore to stock, love and serve the community.  She is a proud survivor of Leukemia. After her Mother passed away from ALS in February of 2016, she found her way into The Lift and met Rhonda Rhodes, the owner. And she knew that she found a place to heal and restore the magic to her life. In November of 2018 she bought the little popular Indie bookstore and gift shop. You can often find her 12 year old daughter in the store lending a hand and learning how to be a shop girl!

The Lift’s hand-selected reads are complimented with high-quality gifts, jewelry, stationery, greeting cards, toys, local-interest items, journals, fashion accessories, personal accessories, and home décor. The abundance of items that fill The Lift can’t help but delight the senses and inspire the soul. If it’s a gift, be assured that the friendly staff will prepare the item ready for giving in our colorful bags and tissue, at no cost to you.
