This is my favorite needlework shop to date. Susans Yarns has hundreds of different colors of yarn and different tools and books to get you started with knitting. They have classes to teach you how to knit, or help you out with a current project. I knitted scarfs this winter as stocking stuffers for family and friends, using all my yarn from Susans Yarn. They turned out great, and everyone loved them!! This is truly the best place to go to pursue a knitting hobby.
My friends and I were having an unofficial soccer match and wanted to get printed t-shirts to make it more official. Daffy Dans had different color t-shirts to print on, and about 1,000 different fonts and colors for the lettering and numbers on the shirts. We got to design them, and he printed them up for us to pick up. They're soo cute, and I'll definitely do it again!!!
I dropped my Apple iBook G4 on the ground, and two problems occured: the power supply no longer worked as well (it took a lot of effort and manipulation to get it to start charging the battery), and the laptop would no longer stay closed. Nelson had a look at it and fixed both problems in less than 15 minutes. They were incredible, and I didn't have to deal with shipping my laptop back to Apple, Inc. Awesome store indeed.
My grandma has a problem where her hands and feet swell, making her need a wider-sized shoe and slipper. Mar Lou Shoes is the only place where she can find shoes that fit comfortably. Even though the store appears small from the outside, they have cozy slippers, casual sneakers, and dressier shoes that will fit your feet nicely. I'm very glad they're in business, it's nice to find her shoes that fit.
This is another wholesome Christian bookstore I love to visit. I love the atmosphere and feeling I get when I walk in. They have a tremendous selection of books to enhance your beliefs and all sorts of gifts that vary in price, that can be used as an entire gift, or as part of a gift. Everything is well-cared for, and the store is a very pleasant place. Recommended to find religious gifts.
While I haven't purchases shoes from Shooz N More, I come here because they're the only store that carries the right laces for my Sketchers shoes (right color and length). They have a great selection of laces, buffers, cleaners, sprays, and brushes to keep your shoes looking tip-top, shiny, and clean. Sometimes, you just need to revitalize your shoes, not get an entirely new pair. I recommend this place if you're looking for shoe accessories - chances are, they have it covered!
A terrific hair salon with excellent hospitality. The hair stylists are friendly, bubbly, and good conversationalists. They have hot coffee or cold water to drink, and a good selection of magazines to look at if you're waiting in the lobby. They do nice work on hair - I've been there a few times and think they did a terrific job cutting and straightening my hair. I'll definitely return.
I'm very physically active - kickboxing, running, yoga, abs classes - so I'm frequently left with sore muscles. Todays Touch works wonders on me when I overdo a workout. Their packages are heavenly - hot tea or cold champagne with fresh fruit, combined with a long massage that will have your body feeling like butter afterwards. This is the best sort of pampering available!!!
I've always been fascinated with the marine world and have always wanted to learn to scuba. For a relatively low cost (which includes equipment rental, air tanks, etc.), you can get lessons from a professional & accomplished diver. I went for a series of lessons on swimming, safety, and diving explained in through detail, then took the test for my open water license in Tahiti. Since being trained at Dan's Scuba, I've done cold water dives in New Hampshire and Maine, and have seen so many amazing things. Recommended, hands down.
I went to The Cheesecake Factory after it opened since it was the talk of the town. I think it's overrated and overpriced. I ordered a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. Honestly, Great Steak & Potato Co. in the mall makes a more tasty sandwich than they did.
For a drink, I had apple juice. They charged $3.25, gave me a very small cup (perhaps 8 oz. - I was sipping sparingly to make it last the whole meal), which was ridiculous. I'm by no means frugal, but that is beyond being ridiculous. I could buy two jugs of apple juice at the grocery store for that price.
The cheesecake was very good, I admit. It was much better than any homemade cheesecakes I've ever had. I'd buy a cheesecake from them and skip the mediocre & overpriced culinary foods & drinks.
PROS: The cheesecake
CONS: The long waits, the overrated foods, the prices
