Where do all the used books go? To the community bookstore. Authors that only they themselves remember, classics, every book you can imagine may be in this store. Dusty, filled to the brim with shelved and stacked and stuffed books. Outside boxes marked for $0.50 or a $1 pique intrest, but the true booklover knows to come back with plenty to time to dig. Burried treasures are plentiful, and amazingly enough the owner can tell you if and where particular books are. Prices are unbeatable, selection is unfathomable.

See all those people hanging out at coffee shops knitting and crocheting cool stuff. Bet they got their yarn at Knitting Hands. Aisles of acrylic, angora, mohair and novelty yarns, racks of needles, stacks of books. This is the place to go. They also offer classes for the knitting challenged. Spacious, clean, as expensive as you want to go, makes this an inviting new (or old) hobby.
This is a place for experienced antiquers. Cramped is an understatement. But the goods are very interesting, from furnature to kitchen gadgets, you never know waht you'll stumble upton.

This place makes TJ Max look pathetic. Centrury 21 carries everything from just about every designer for every age and style. Four stories of tighly packed merchandise does make for difficult navagating, but to those who know how to dig the rewards are great. The crowds are obnoxious so week days are reccommended, though it's never really empty. The prices are great with hugely marked off designer wares and seasonal sales. Go with lots of energy!
The store looks like a Martha Stewart haven with upholstery and draperiery cloth all over. Pillows and linens and furnishing accessories fill cubbies and cover walls. You can come in and place a custom order, buy pre-made accents or buy the supplies to create your own decor. Though small, one could spend hours in this store designing and dreaming. Prices are not bad and style is varied from European to Asian to classic american. Worth a look.

With a little creativity this place can be a fashion haven. Nothing is over $10, but the styles are cute and moldable. A small sewing sensibility can turn a $10 sort of ok skirt into a favorite! The basic tanks and tees are a definate reason to shop here. As far as quality, you pay for what you get, but it's a start and a little creativity and thread and you can easily create you own styles.
