Although they don't often run specials or sales, this is a good place to stop by if you're sick of going to the run-of-the-mill chain music store (like Sam Goody or Coconuts). Here they have a nice variety of all styles of music, and the prices are kind of average for a CD store. The people here know music, and they're usually very willing to help you find just what you're looking for.
This is a locally-famous bookstore, mostly because this is the place that gets a lot of famous authors to do book signings (Anne Rice, for instance, was just here a few months ago). They sell a nice selection of books, new and rare. The prices are average, and the only downside is that this place is a little small, so you may want to stop by during the week and not a busy weekend. If you're bored with the large, impersonal bookstore chains, this is a breath of fresh air.
This place is definitely more unique than your average flower shop. This place, located just off 411, is a great place to go for all your flower arrangement needs. They also sell a few gift items. The prices are very reasonable, and the staff is always friendly and helpful, as well, which is always a plus.
If you're looking for the best place to get a flower arrangement in town, look no further. I prefer this place to the Pell City Flower Shop, because this place has better prices and fresher flowers. Plus, the people that work here are always very friendly and always willing to help you pick out exactly what it is you're needing.
If you're looking for a quick gift for someone, this is a fabulous little place to look into. Located conveniently downtown, this is a great store that sells odds and ends, from consigned clothes, to purses and jewelry. The prices are always very reasonable, and the staff is always friendly and willing to help you find what you're looking for.
This is a really cute store located on the main drag of downtown. They just remodeled a lot of the exterior of these buildings, so it looks very nice. This is a nice little store that carries a few consigned items, as well as small gift-type things. The prices are decent, which makes this a great place to stop by if you're looking for a gift.
This is the *best* place to buy that nice piece of jewelry or crystal that you've always wanted. They have a very large selection of pieces to choose from, and the people that work here are always SO nice. They will even open you up a credit account, and probably give you a nice discount on whatever it is you might be looking for. This is definitely nicer than those impersonal chain jewelry stores in Birmingham.
I go to Panama City almost every summer, and I ALWAYS stop by Maharaja's to see what's new. This is a very high-class place for jewelry and collectibles. You will be treated like royalty here, they offer you champagne as soon as you walk in the door. The prices are average for a very high-end jewelry store, but their pieces are so unique that you'll be willing to pay the price.
This is a great place to go if you're looking for a reasonably-priced musical instrument. They have a decent variety of band instruments, as well as guitars, bass guitars, drums, keyboards, etc. This is also a great place to go for jewelry. The people that work here are always very friendly, as well. If you're looking for a cheap instrument...check here first.
This is an excellent store! I've been here a few times to get some t-shirts silkscreened. They do excellent work here. You can choose from several designs, and several different styles of shirt. Also, what probably draws you in the most, is the fact that this place has TONS of band shirts, as well as movie shirts and such. This is a great place to go for a t-shirt.
