Are you familiar with Mardel?

Mardel is a Christian and education store located in Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a Mardel near me, but I’ve heard people talk about it FOREVER!  Mardel.  Mardel.  Mardel.  Seriously, I’ve heard this name a million times!

When I planned my trip to Oklahoma to decorate Karen Marinelli’s classroom (teacher injured in Oklahoma tornado), I asked her if they had a teacher store nearby to purchase some classroom items.  Karen explained that I could stop at the nearest Mardel.

There it was AGAIN!!!  MARDEL.  I knew I had to see what this was all about.

The first night that I was in Oklahoma, I finally made my trip to the infamous Mardel!

As I walked in, I was instantly impressed with the large selection of classroom décor and supplies.  WOW!  Karen wasn’t kidding…this was a teacher store! 

I walked around and admired the large collection of Christian home décor, clothing, office supplies, and so much more!  Karen also told me that I needed to get the famous t-shirt that supports the Plaza Towers teachers…

Plaza Towers t-shirt

Don’t you LOVE it?!?  These are only sold at Mardel.

I was so overwhelmed and excited to be at Mardel, that I actually walked out without it!

Not to worry though, Karen was thoughtful enough to pick one up for me at the end of my stay!  Thank you, Karen!

Soooo, you cannot imagine how happy I was when I was contacted by Mardel the day I returned home from Oklahoma and they expressed their interest in helping teachers as well!  Thank you, Mardel for your support!

  21. says

    Thank you for what you represent to our country regarding the education of our children. We all need to pray for our schools, administrators, teachers, and legislators that moral and academic decisions made are in the best interest of the student!

  22. says

    I liked, shared, and liked Mardel’s fb and yours. I love Mardel and everything they stand for. I teach in a public high school in Mesquite, TX and thankfully prayer is not frowned upon there. We still pray over the loud speakers at football games and graduation. My students are even prone to do a class prayer before my tests. We say the pledge of allegiance every morning. We celebrate CHRISTmas there too. Sometimes I like to rant and rave about our public high school’s high standards and great beliefs ton give hope to people who think prayer isn’t allowed in school. Just thought I’d share.
