Regal always has the new releases first in Butler. A visit to the concession stand & tickets for the family can make it a pricier night out than some of the other options, but it's relatively comfortable, with plenty of parking & they do offer their regal card points for regular film buffs.
If you don't mind seeing movies a few months after they appear at the bigger movie theaters, Clearview Mall's small cinema is a much cheaper night out for the family!
After a tick bite lead to Lyme, I looked for a Lyme-literate doctor in the region, and was disappointed that there are so few around in an area with such a high rate of ticks and Lyme disease.
I visited Dr Chiu at her Sarver clinic & she wasted no time in ordering tests and starting proper treatment, with follow ups when I needed them.
Amongst other things, Gibson Glass makes some neat marbles and paperweights. They do allow visitors to take a little tour through but we visited after Christmas when they were closed so check first.
Blenko really do make some of the most colorful glass around! The gift store is great, with something for all budgets.
Beware though - a lot of what I bought (a car FULL) were seconds, and although I got a great deal, I did pay a price in the end. Amongst all the items we bought were 5 floor decanters. Over the course of a year, each decanter broke either because the base wasn't completely flat and the slightest breeze would make it wobble over, or with 2 of them the stoppers were too heavy & the top of the decanters cracked under the weight.
We visited just after Christmas when the factory was closed so didn't get to see any demonstrations. Check before visiting.
We visited Fenton Glass factory in 2005 & it was definitely worth the long trip! The main gift shop is a Fenton-collectors dream, with an area of limited editions and separate section for lower price seconds.
If you visit, the tour around the factory is great. Watch the glass workers as they form, shape & mold the glass.
Miss Bessie's has a huge variety of fresh homemade cookies that I've never seen anywhere else! They are delicious!
They also stock different candies and sweets from around the world, and each day there is a different "special".
Wharf Hill Antiques really is a beautiful store, with many lovely antiques - furniture, pottery, enamel ware - as well as a beautiful collection of silk flowers & gifts.
The staff are extremely friendly & it's always a pleasure to browse.
Image Art is a must to visit in the lovely old town of Smithfield. It is filled with beautiful art work & sculptures - some of my favorite being the art of John Matthew Moore.
A friendly gallery, also selling small art prints and cards.
Mountain Star Antique & Craft is a neat little store, with a nice collection of furniture, glassware & craft items - handmade soaps, candles and the like. We last visited over Thanksgiving in 2007 when it was decorated for the holidays and had many great gifts and displays.
