This thrift store has a wide range of things that vary in scope, depending on when you go there. The clothes tend to be 'senior' styles, and many of the decorative items positively stuffy, but every once in a while you can really find a nice buy there.
The feel here is Italian-American style family deli, complete with framed movie stills from "The Godfather" hanging on the walls. Sandwiches and gelato both good. Not fancy, but very homey.
This is a combination flower and gift shop as the name suggests. The flowers are all the way in back, so it looks more gift shop-like when you first walk in. I particularly like their specialty soaps by the slice.
Well hand it to Kate for making such a brand name for herself and her bags, they are sure in demand. Very stylish and whimsical and sophisticated, these bags are a wonderful treat for yourself when you want to splurge. The shop also has creative events like Paint your own Bag. the staff here is also as stylish as the bags.
This place is all about sunglasses -- the cool, the way cool and the outlandishly priced. You can get your designer shades, your Ray-Bans, etc. and it's pretty user friendly shop9ing because it's small and the staff is reasonably friendly. They also are good about doing quick repairs.
A lot of neighborhood people come here for a quick caffeine fix and to sit around for a meeting or kids' break. on weekend especially, lots of cyclists decked out in their gear stop here for fuel. This shop does nice programs on coffee history and tastings too.
Peets has the reputation for artisanal coffee, perhaps deserved, but this coffee house seems to be particularly slow. people are often lined up around the corner, though, so it's obviously worth it to them.
This place is incredibly understaffed even for warehouse shopping experience. Not only is there no one around to help answer questions or find things, even if you go and find something yourself, you often have to wait around at the emty checkout counter for 10 minutes before someone finally comes to check youout.
This is the place to find shoes for every kind of sport you'd engage in, as well as socks for same. They are no as focused on running per se, but they do have wide selection of running shoes and accessories like pedometers etc.
this shop has easy wearing stuff, good for vacations, sportswear, casual and comfortable, nothing particularly stylish though. Also has some decent accessories, and even some stuffed animals.
