I absolutely love my new bookmark from Mitercraft, a company based on Guemes Island in the great Pacific Northwest. It's made out of wood from sustainably managed or certified forests and the selection of bookmarks is amazing and can be customized. In addition to bookmarks, they make coasters and cribbage boards and more. If you're looking for that perfect special gift, visit their website - you'll be amazed!
