This is a "co-op" type store, with different vendors set up in the space with the most amazing books lined up in the center of the store. This is a must for locals as well as visitors. The people working here are so friendly and helpful, they have public restrooms (imagine that!) and the best gifts. I make it a... More

This store is fun to visit, with many unique items. However, I would occasionally find the same item(s) at less the cost elsewhere.

This store has neat paper products and unusual items to buy. If I had not been traveling light I could have picked up many neat items for gifts and accents.

Solo houses an enormous amount of eclectic and interesting items. Wander thru to discover books, jewelry, home decor, etc. I bought a ring carved from a nut that grows in the South American rainforest. Many other fascinating finds, plus a friendly and helpful staff. Go on Sunday and hit the weekly farmers' market.
