Kiefs Downtown Music is a small but great music store located in downtown Lawrence. The selection at Kiefs is small and their offerings concentrate on a few major labels and many small labels. The employees are really great here and they will go out of their way to help you.
The Antique Mall of Lawrence is an antique store in downtown Lawrence that offers a good number of dealers booths. The booths, along with the store, are well taken care of and generally things are easy to find and clearly marked. The prices are high because of the location of the store.
I have bought my last two cars at Jim Clark Motors and I have been very happy with these two purchases. The salesmen are friendly and for the most part they are not hard sellers. They have GREAT deals on their program cars and you really cant get a better deal anywhere in town.
Earl May Nursery & Garden Center is a great place to go to get items for your yard and garden. They also have a nursery which is okay but there are some local places around that will give you a better deal. I love browsing in Earl May and I often buy gifts for others while Im there. The employees are helpful and friendly.
I attended Emporia State University recently and received my bachelors degree from them. The best part about ESU is the size of the school. The school is small enough where you can get a good education with mostly small class sizes. The school is big enough that you meet new people on a regular basis. The professors at ESU are great and for the most part are more than willing to help a student out.
The Topeka Zoo is located in Gage Park in Topeka. The zoo is on the small side and it used to be a nice zoo to visit. Over the past several years the zoo has had problems with animals dying. Of course there is always a reason for this but if you go there you can see how unhappy the animals are. The admission prices is also small for the small number of exhibits they have.
Half Price Books is a great place to go to buy or sell used books. The store is very well organized and taken care of. The employees are very nice and helpful. This is a great place to go if you need a gift for someone or want to pick up something for yourself. I highly recommend going here to sell your books, they give more than the other used bookstores in town.
Deans Books is a large but cramped used bookstore in SE Topeka. The good thing about Deans Book is that you can get some really good deals there but you have to be willing to dig. Deans Books can be stingy about buying books from you, and I suggest you go somewhere else to sell your books.
Arizona Trading Company is a used clothing store located in downtown Lawrence. Arizona Trading Company is much like a thrift store but it has two differences higher prices but a better selection of cool clothes. This store is mainly geared towards young adults but there seems to be something for everyone there. They also buy used clothing.
