Drala Books and Gifts (1567 Grafton) is under new ownership. Rand Gaynor and Mike Mannette took over the shop from previous owners Deborah Luscomb and Jim Lindsey a couple of weeks ago. Gaynor, a loyal customer at Drala, saw owning the store as “an opportunity to have some fun.” Under its new owners, Drala will continue to offer the same specialized books, teapots, cushions, ornaments and Shambhala and Buddhist specialty items customers have come to expect, but Gaynor also hopes to bring new affordable “fine quality” home decor items to the store. Any other big changes planned? Watch for Gaynor to put his background as a graphic designer to work---
expect “more informative signage” on the store’s often-mysterious specialty products. Call Drala at 422-2504.
