About the Oxford Comma Bookstore
The Oxford Comma is owned and run by Kelly Pratt and Tiffany Phillips. Kelly grew up in Nashville, but later, when she was a junior in high school, her family moved here to White House. She’s excited to bring her love of and expertise in sports card collecting to this area. Customers will also be able to find some of her art displayed on the walls of The Oxford Comma, for Kelly is a skilled artist/illustrator who particularly enjoys capturing moments in sports history. Tiffany originates from Crossville, TN, where she taught high school English for over ten years. Her love of books makes her eager to share and discuss wonderful reads with customers!

When choosing a name for the store, the two ladies wanted something unique, creative, and pertaining to books in some way. Since Tiffany taught grammar for so many years, she often had to discuss comma usage with her students. The Oxford comma (also known as the serial comma) is the last one a writer uses to separate items in a list. (The Oxford Comma sells books, cards, and gifts.) Now, the ladies are not so uppity that they will retrieve a red pen if they see someone fail to use this piece of punctuation, or so offended that they will turn their backs on a customer who enters the store declaring the Oxford comma is unnecessary, but they do hold strongly to the belief that good punctuation is important for clear communication.
