This is a great shop to browse around in Old City. It is a good place to buy a house warming present. It has a ton of stock of all things "home." Staff is very friendly.
The "gallery" in the store's title refers to jewelry, pottery and glass items, not paintings. This is a tiny shop with high prices. The items are pretty, particularly the glass items, but anything with the word gallery in the title is not going to be a bargain.
This shop on Germantown ave. in Chestnut Hill is focused on gifts and items related to the performing arts. There are music related items, as well as clothes also, and holiday ornaments. It has been around forever, but it hasn't ever really floated my boat.
I can't stand this shop. It is a mishmash mess, and completely cluttered. The use of the word artisan is a very liberal usage. Seems like there is also lot of non-hand made junk.
I can't say enough good things about this shop. It is a mix of antiques, especially majolica, and hand painted items, mainly furniture. Everything is exquisite. Truly works of art.
Let's face it, there aren't that many independent shoe sellers left. This shop, located on the main drag of Chestnut Hill offers a somewhat stodgy selection. Nothing fancy or designer, but I got a nice pair of sneakers there once. Prices are reasonable.

Located in the heart of Chestnut Hill, the Philadelphia Print Shop is the place to buy an antique print. Their selection and quality is amazing. I believe they also specialize in restoration. The owner is a regular on Antiques Roadshow.
This shop specializes in goods produced by worker sin other countries who are treated fairly in trade. There are a lot of earthy crafts and products made out of natural resources. It is a great place to get a gift.
This is a great place to get a good massage. It is not super fancy or a particularly beautiful space, but the services are good. the owner is really interested in making sure the experience is memorable. I highly recommend.
