Page & Palette

As writers, we are always in search of our happy writing place. A place where we can be creative, think about our topic, ponder our ideas, or just hang out to discuss it. Marty and I often find our space at Page and Palette. After all, it is here that we are surrounded by many fabulous authors with their published works around us. And when we see all the books, their graphics inspire us. We can visualize all the writers that came before us, and that is here in the now—the up-and-coming new author. The book signings excite us!

Local history is a hot topic, and we love to see the store promoting all the locals.
We sit and enjoy a lovely raspberry tea or a white chocolate latte on ice. This helps fuel our ideas and new adventures for our blog. The oatmeal cookies help too. We often bring our notebooks and laptops to plan our next assignment. We are satisfied to know that out of every hundred dollars spent, approximately fifty-five dollars stay in our community—a great way to keep it local, which is one of the ideas that we support. Fun items are located in the gift shop as well.

We sit close by to give us inspiration when we write. The bar is close by too, and we often find that the local chatter is quite interesting. People of all types come and go, local and from out of town: the old and the young. Page and Palette is really for everyone indeed.

Many sit outside when the weather is nice. Today the Fabulous Fairhope Tulips are in bloom. A must-see in Fairhope. They are open 7 days a week in downtown Fairhope.
