If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I do volunteer work for OM Ships in their Florence office. And if you live anywhere near Florence, here’s an excellent place for you to do some Christmas shopping — or just ordinary every-day shopping — the OM Ships Discount Christmas Book Market, which will be open until December 31st. It’s on David McLeod Blvd. (I-20 spur) at the left-hand end of Hobby Lobby / Ashley Furniture in what used to be the Lowe’s garden shop. All the books are new and heavily discounted. Educational books, Bibles, fiction and non-fiction books, how-to books, recipe books, plus lots and lots of children’s books are included.
All the proceeds will go toward development of the OM Ships property here in Florence, as the book distribution facilities in Georgia are being moved to Florence. This is where all the books are received, sorted, and packed for shipment to the actual ships. Right now we are using donated space in a local warehouse and hopefully within a few months will be able to break ground on our first building.
