I love to flip through books of all kinds. There are great deals to be had online however it is not the same as holding the book in your own hands. They don't mind if you sit and read before you decide. The staff offers help when you need it but they never hover around. This store has it all new and used books for a great price. I love to shop here because it is far less crowded and much more quiet than the big stores.
PROS: Quiet, less crowded
CONS: some books may not be available
Vintage stock buys, sells and trades video games and cds. They also sell a wide variety of sports collectables and cards. The prices are great and there is a huge selection of everything they sell. I haven't sold or traded anything but I have heard they are very fair and buy for a reasonable price.
Dave Smith makes lamps and a whoe lot more. The store is packed to rafters with any and every style of lamp you can imagine. The also have many custom looking home furnishings at mass produced prices. If you can't find the lamp you are looking for they find it or make it for you. They have tons of replacements and repair parts to fix up your old lamps.
Entering the store I thought I would find high prices and the usual uptight salesman you see in fancy jewlelry stores. I couldn't have been more wrong. Noble House offers a wide selection of jewelry and a wide range of prices. The store is packed full of unique pieces of fine and casual "everyday" jewelry. I think they also sell custom jewelry. The staff is very knowledgeable about the jewelry they sell and were willing to answer all of my questions.
This store has a ton of new furniture sets and asiles of collectables. The store is divided up into smaller booths decorated by different vendors. The booths contain a mix of books, jewelry, antiques and other collectables. There are bargains to be found everywhere. Look for coupons for percents off of items in certain vendor booths
PROS: Products in every corner of the store
CONS: prices are not immediately negotiable but they will contact the vendors
Hy Vee made the most beautiful bouquet and floral arrangements for my friends wedding receptions. The flowers were nicer than other arrangements we priced at fancier florist. There were more flowers per arrangement and the flowers were much larger. The price was amazing and saved a ton of money.
I have taken several pairs of shoes here to have the shoe pads replaced. I also took in a pair to have the heel replaced. The shoes were repaired carefully and quickly. The service was friendly and fast. I have referred many other people to the shop because I liked them so much.
Jaegers underground facility provides an interesting atmosphere for a fun gathering. We attended a party planned through our office so that the staff could have a fun release. It was very entertaining watching adults play like kids. The prices seemed to be reasonable although I am not sure if the price is comperable to similar businesses.
Many people told me I should try this store for purchasing kids gifts. The store had some unique items but most were priced above what I wanted to pay. The staff was helpful although I ultimately had to return to purchase additional items to make the toy they recommended work. I had given the purchase as a gift and felt obligated to spend more money to make the item whole. The sales person didn't tell me I needed to buy other items to make the toy work and it wasn't clearly marked on the package
This cozy boutique is packed to the rafters with unique hand crafted items for the home. I purchased many things in the past for gifts and for my home. The shop is arranged in many rooms decorated with the items for sale and there are Christmas items for sale year round. The prices are reasonable and range from a few dollars to a few hundred. They also sell the best dry soup and chili mixes.
