The Lift is your little shop around the corner, both a bookstore and a gift shop, on a bustling street where art meets history in the Heights area of Houston. We carry the good reads--the new, talked-about, sought-after books. The Lift also overflows with colorful, whimsical gifts that are a joy to the senses, including fine and fashion jewelry, items of Texas or Houston interest, fashion accessories and apparel, home decor items, quality leather goods, toys, coffee mugs, note cards, journals, refrigerator magnets, and so much more! 

But we are first, a bookstore. Our bookshelves are full of the new, good reads. We carry Fiction, Nonfiction, Children's, Young Adult, and books of local interest, as well as cookbooks, gift books, and more. Besides these named items, there are many, many more. So browse on by and soar to new Heights at The Lift!
