The public library is an excellent resource here in Canton. They belong to a consortium of other libraries, allowing them to offer an extensive collection of materials, both in their own stacks as well as through interlibrary loans with other communities, such as Duxbury, Hingham, and Stoughton.
Not only does the library offer books, but they also have a fair collection of compact discs and DVD's. They have an attractive children's room with many activities, too.
The library has recently undergone extensive renovations, and it is now in a beautiful facility. Hopefully more members of the community will take advantage of this important resource.
The first time I had my nails done here I thought they did a great job, but I went back a couple of times and thought they were just OK. The store is small and not kept immaculately clean. Nothing too horrible just not sparkly clean.
They did not have any pedicure chairs when I went there but still offered pedicure service so they had you soak your feet in a tub on the floor. I would definitely recommend going someplace else for a pedicure.
I've had my nails done here a few times and have always been pleased by the results. The salon is nice and clean and the manicurists are quite friendly. They have enough pedicure seats so that there isn't a very bad back-up.
They seem to have a lot of regulars which is a good sign in this area where there are very many nail salons.
This is a very nice children's boutique located on Broadway in South Boston. It is a small shop but has a nice selection of clothes and gift for infants through pre-teen.
Most of the clothing is traditional, but there are some contemporary styles as well. I would definitely recommend this spot for a special occasion outfit, but don't think I would go there for play clothes.
They also sell a lot of First Communion dresses and Christening gowns and offer a great selection. For the Communion dresses they keep a log so that only one girl per parish wears the same dress. That is a great feature.
This is a discount clothing store for small children and babies. They really do have some decent bargains on name brands like OshKosh B'gosh and Little Me.
The only problem here is that you can't be sure what you'll find from one visit to the next. For instance, I wouldn't come here to select a gift since I couldn't be sure of finding something I'd like.
A real plus is their shoe department. Also inconsistent, they occasionally have Stride Rite shoes at a real discount.
The expansion of the Village Mall has brought White's Pastry Shop to Canton. There is a wide assortment of typical bakery fare here, from half-moons to traditional birthday cakes.
However, there is also a large selection of gourmet cakes that are a real treat. There's tiramisu and mocha cakes, for example, as well as a Kalua (sp?) cake that is to die for.
A lot of people also buy lunch here, since they offer a very limited selection of sandwiches and salads.
We do some of our banking at Randolph Savings and have always been pleased with the customer service that we receive there. We have a checking account and a savings account and receive decent interest without any fees.
My mother also has an account there and they offer a good program for seniors that eliminates fees for accounts and some services, such as money orders.
The Canton branch never has a line and they have convenient hours particularly at the drive-through.
This is a great bakery in Chinatown. I'm not generally a huge fan of Chinese desserts, but they offer a great selection of cakes and pastries. I especially love their cake with peaches and whipped cream. It is so delicious!
Their Chinese savory buns are also incredible. The roast pork bun is both sweet and savory. Their curried beef bun is also quite good.
Prices are so reasonable and there are a few places where you can sit to enjoy a pastry if you don't feel like taking it home.
I am a Trinity College alumna and I consider my years on campus as some of the best in my life. Trinity offers an excellent mix of academic challenge, social interaction, and real-world opportunities that help prepare students for the working world.
Classes at Trinity were interesting and challenging. Importantly, class sizes are small, allowing for an interactive learning experience. I took several classes of fewer than 15 students.
Social life at Trinity is exciting and abundent. There are several school-sponsored events, as well as parties and activities hosted by the Greek system.
Finally, Trinity provides off-campus opportunities that help prepare students for life after graduation. There is a large emphasis placed on internships in the Hartford community, and they also offer several opportunities to study abroad on Trinity's Rome campus and through other programs.
I strongly recommend Trinity to students considering a liberal arts college in New England. They also offer part-time learning programs for working persons.
We stopped in here while looking for new furniture to decorate our home. We were not impressed by the quality or the style of their merchandise. The items were cheaply made and I don't think there was a solid wood item in the entire store.
The prices were not so much more affordable than the neighboring Jordan's Furniture, which I highly recommend over this store.
The only good point of the store was an interesting closet organizer assembly that would have made for a nice closet or dressing room.
