Twice Told Tales

Posted

Who better to run a book and gift store than a retired professor? Karen Calkins purchased Twice Told Tales 22 years ago while she was still teaching college courses, and now runs the quaint Pawtuxet Village shop. Twice Told Tales has a room of gifts including Crabtree and Evelyn products, designer clothing, and jewelry by Trollbeads from Denmark and on-trend Spanish designer Uno de 50. The other room? Books, from floor to ceiling. “We support local artists, authors and musicians,” Karen says. “I love the thrill of finding unique gifts to sell in the store, and working with my talented sales staff.”
