This store is fun to browse. Make sure you have an hour or more because it is so hard to leave. They carry lots of gems, jewelry of all kinds, books on all topics and lots of little gifts for all occasions. I have bought jewelry here and they really try to get you what you want. The employees are friendly and very helpful. You can sign up for there email newsletter and they will send you there sales and other going ons with them. I really think this is a fun place to visit. The employees are very sweet and helpful also.

This is a fun new age-y store. They have lots of books on alternative, new age topics that you probably won't find elsewhere. They have nice gifts and cards. They have a sizeable selection of jewelry made of crystals, tourmaline etc. They make their own incense.

Unique store with many ideas for the hard to shop for person. They have a huge selection of beaded jewelry, African themed decorations, geodes, many different types of polished rocks, and even constilation items. More of a "trendy" type store and a definite place to visit for those who are labeled as "environmentalists". Very large store with many things to look at and something for nearly every budget. Beautiful music (soothing sounds). On street parking which can be a bit difficult.

I really enjoy this store! though I don't go downtown often, when I do I visit VORTEX and ultimately walk out with another one of their unique and one of a kind items!

I have a friend that is quite the individual and at times I have pondered what to purchase for him, gift wise. He isn't the "gift card" type of person and I wouldn't dream of trying to buy him a book or clothing, yet whenever I find myself in this store, something ultimately "jumps off" the shelf and proves to be the perfect gift for him.

Full of insence, new age items, crystals and beautiful one of a kind gifts...VORTEX is the perfect place for anyone to visit to find a gift that will not only be thoughtful but different as well.

Make a trip downtown today and visit some of my favorite shops....I promise you it will be worth the price of parking!

PROS: ...interesting, unique items
CONS: ...is downtown...plan ahead for parking!

This is a really cool store. I found it very interesting to look through all of the items they offer here. A wide variety of things from very beautiful rocks (geodes and polished rocks), African items to hang on your walls, stars and moons. My favorite is the beaded jewelry they have. Wow. You really do need to visit this store just once to understand what Im talking about.

Parking is pretty much non-existent, so be prepared to walk.

PROS:
CONS: no parking

Vortex is a unique store to visit. There is so much to see here so make sure you are not in a hurry when you do stop. There are many crystals. The employees are more than willing to explain the properties of the crystals to you. There are also some books on the subject if you would rather read about it. There are other types of jewelry and gifty items that you do not see anywhere else.

PROS:
CONS: parking is not available
