The Calico Paw 

A one stop shop for the pampered woman


We are an independent mini bookery & gift shop located in Henderson, NC.  Although we carry books for all ages, including picture books & fun books for kids, we are primarily a pampering hub for women, including bath & body items, skin care, candles, women's fiction, & so many other things. However, guys, we have some items for you, as well! Books are only a small part of our store's offerings! Don't let the key phrase of "gift shop" fool you. It's just an easy way to say hodge podge of goodies!

We carry hand-poured candles made right here in NC, along with other organic skin care & pampering gifts.  Most items are made by other small businesses we've selected offering unique flair and personal touches of their own.   A good book & a sugar scrub bath sounds like a night we give 4 paws up to. Stop by & put together an escape of your own.  Check Events to learn about author signings & more.
