Antiqueland Antique Mall & Interior Market
1500 Custer Rd.
Plano, TX 75075
Antiqueland has a wonderful collection of individual booths selling the most random things. If you are looking for something for your home or a gift for someone that has everything, Antiqueland is a perfect place to find something unique. The mall is quite large. It actually was at one point a Wal-Mart, so naturally it will take you a while to walk through it. Antiqueland carries things like furniture, portraits, old albums, etc. They also have several booths that sell collectables such as Star Wars figures, coins, Coca-Cola memorabilia, Sports memorabilia, etc. There arent people walking around trying to sell you things which makes the shopping experience pleasant, but if you want to look at something that is locked up, it becomes a hassle; you take the good with the bad. All in all, Antiqueland is a very fun place to go spend an hour or so.
Lone Star Radiant Barrier
Celina, TX 75009
Lone Star Radiant Barrier provides a service that applies a radiant barrier in the attic of your home. This barrier serves as a reflective shield against the sun and can lower the temperature in your attic as much as 30-40 degrees, ultimately reducing the cost of energy to cool ones home by 3-15% a month. The cost of installation is calculated by square footage and roof pitch. The cost is .35 cents per square foot, which includes the price of materials and labor. This price is on the low side for this type of service. Lone Star provides service quickly. They are very courteous and extremely friendly. They truly make the process an enjoyable one. I highly recommend Lone Stars services.
PROS: Good price. Excellent service.

Fireside Pies on Henderson Avenue is a fun trendy place to go have a drink, eat a pretty good slice of pizza and have a nice conversation. Fireside Pies is by far the nicest place that I have been to have some half way decent pepperoni pie. It is a fun atmosphere and the Fireside staff is great. You can have a whole pizza pie or your choice of pie by the slice. Fireside is not the best pizza that I have ever had, but it is by far the most expensive. If you are looking for something different to do before you go out, Fireside Pies is right up your alley. Its defiantly something you should try at least once.
PROS: A fun place to go
