I loved my time at Keene State College. I got such a solid education, and had professors that I will always treasure and some that I will keep in touch with for always. I learned so much, not just academically, but life lessons as well. The dorm life was great, I couldn't have wanted it any other way. You develop such a tight knit family of friends, and I have memories I will treasure for always
What I have always liked best about this store is the Christmas ornaments. For a long time, every year I would get an ornament from there for the tree. They have "typical" ones and really beautiful and unique ones. One year I bought one that perfectly resembled a bubble, it was beautiful, irradescent. They also have other gifts as well, Yankee Candles, Crabtree and Evelyn products, greeting cards, wind chimes, its a great little store where you can find very neat gifts for yourself or your friends and family
I have always loved True Necessities. Their jewelry selection is great. I always buy (and have bought) earrings from there. They have expanded and now have many more items to offer, clothing, sunglasses, gifts, Vera Bradley bags (in so many styles and colors) stockings, shoes, you name it. It's a part of the Colony Mill's original and unique stores, and its worth peeking in to check it out
What I really liked about Andy's was the helpful service. Most of the time when you are buying a bike you don't know exactly what to look for, what will be best for you and what you want out of it. But the staff at Andy's was there to recommend and answer any questions you had, which was great. They have so many bikes to offer, all different brands and styles to choose from.
This is a fairly new business, but when I went there the other night I couldn't believe all the different ice cream and frozen yogurt they had to offer. All sorts of flavors, non fat yogurts, toppings, concoctions, you name it they had it. Some of their flavors of ice cream sounded incredible (I was sticking with the nonfat blackraspberry frozen yogurt that day, which was so good), but on a not-feeling-so-fat day, I will be going back to try one of those unique ice cream flavors!
Bookland has been around for many many years, its not an "out of the ordinary" book store, but it does have a lot to offer, in all different genres. They have a rather large magazine selection which is nice, and the staff is very friendly and eager to help you find what you are looking for. I like to stop in from time to time to pick up some new reading material. Its in a great location in Downtown Keene.
Ok, so their breads are amazing, but so are their sandwiches, soups, pastries, coffee drinks...I love it all. Highly recommend the 1/2 sandwich and soup or salad, because you are getting a little bit of everything. My favorites include: the black bean soup, broccoli cheddar soup, bacon turkey bravo, green iced tea, IC Caramel Chip, any cookies, their bagels and cream cheeses, i could go on, but I was so happy to have Panera come to Keene
I really like Shaws supermarkets the best because they always seem to have the best savings around. If you have a Shaw's rewards card then you will be saving yourself a bundle. They do have a great variety and quality of produce, as well as a nice healthfood section with so many different and unique cereals, breads, you name it. I always love to look at my reciept and see how much I saved that day!
What could be better than great clothes at a seriously affordable price? I absolutely love their clothes, my entire wardrobe is 75% Forever 21. They have several locations but I think the Holyoke Mall location is the best. They also have a website http://www.forever21.com. They have all different types of clothes, from going out to lounging around, its such a fabulous place
This gym has given me so much to choose from; tons of cardio equipment, weight training, all different types of classes, and personal training as well. I'm on my way to a better body!! They have daycare, and tanning too. Its a great place!
