The clothing here is "gently used". The store is stuffed to the gills with clothing, toys,books, strollers, high chairs etc. Just about everything you could need. The prices are so reasonable and I found things to be in excellent condition. I still wish I had purchased the Tigger backpack in "new" condition for $4.00!! If you see something you like, get it! They also will buy your used children's items from you. Everything must be in tip-top shape. The store is a bit cramped, but neat, so try to shop alone!
This store is like a teachers paradise! Everything you need all in one spot. Lots of great ideas and items to personalize your classroom. Some things that you won't find anywhere else. The staff is friendly and helpful and make sure that you use yourteacher discount. Items can be ordered for you if they are out.
When you need art supplies, frames or framing done, this is the place. They carry an extensive selection of frames in many styles and types. They have a good selection of drawing pads and pens and paints. Watch for their 1 cent sale and you can get somegreat deals and save a bundle! I have had a few things framed and have been very pleased.
This nursery is one of my favorites. They have an extensive selection of beautiful plants! The staff here is very knowledgeable and can help you choose the right plants for your needs. In the spring, there are so many beautiful flowers here I just want to buy them all. They also have a pond where you can purchase your water plants. Lots of good pots. Watch for the flyer with a great coupon. A cute wagon to put your purchases on and you don't have to load the heavy stuff yourself! This is where you want to come for your gardening needs!
We brought our dog here when she was quite ill. It was an emergency basis. The staff was very helpful and saw us right away. I was pleased with how kind and gentle they were with her. We didn't know the vet and were very pleased with him. They even didfollow up. It was a good experience.
The Gumbo Pot is set in the Farmers Market and part of the charm is that you eat outdoors. The food here is consistently excellent! My favorite being the Gumbo YaYa. I've tried many of their dishes and they are all good. The prices are so reasonable. You would pay 3 times the amount at a fancier restaurant and not get the quality or authentic taste of the food here. Save room for a beignet--they are great. A fun place to come.
This is a lovely small library. I particularly like the childrens section where they have a selection of books in spanish and other languages as well. They have wonderful programs for pre-schoolers and during the summer have a reading program for elementary school age kids. The music section is growing and I have found some wonderful CD's to borrow. They have several computers with internet access. If they don't have the particular book you are looking for they will get it from another library for you. A friendly place.
This is a wonderful organization. The love and care they have for the animals is amazing. They work hard to match you with an animal always making sure that the animal is placed in the right home. The staff is so knowledgable and attentive to the animals and answers whatever questions you might have.
Of all the Crate and Barrels this one is my absolute favorite. The way everything in this store is displayed is a feast for the eyes. I have lots of fun just walking around and taking it all in. They have beautiful housewares, plates, glassware, tablecloths and napkins. The second floor has the furniture. Lots of really nice pieces. Some great tables. They have some very good sales, and if you sign up you can get a catalog sent to you. They do the best job at packing items, you never have to worry about breakage. I just find this store to be a real treat!
Set in The Grove, this Nordstroms has a lot going for it. The layout of the store is good and the displays are great. Lots of designer clothing, and a great shoe department. They carry a big range of sizes and widths. The staff is always helpful. Upstairs they have sale racks. I like to shop when they have their "big" sales. The savings are fantastic. It's a beautiful store.
