“Ttchotchkes galore and decent lunch too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I am not a big shopper, but this is an interesting place full of tchotchkes and more. After wandering through the store, we headed into the little food area at the back and had soup and a sandwich -- both quite tasty.

This is a fun place to check out and they have wonderful seasonal promotions too. Eat there anytime you want a quick, quiet bite with friends.

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

It's worth the trip. This two story store has a little bit of everything. We stayed there for almost an hour browsing around. It's not a cheap store but it was fun to walk around.

“Super fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is one of my favorite places. Went with a friend, to shop, browse, find fun stuff, get lunch - just a day out together. We had a ball. There is so much to see. We both loved all the kitchen stuff - food, gadgets, utensils. Progressed to the holiday decorations, that are awesome, fantastic, unusual, beautiful. They have so many "departments": jewelry, bath and body products, toys, children's items and clothes, woman's clothes, gift items, cards and stationary. Many items unusual things that you won't see elsewhere. The store is on 2 levels, so don't miss upstairs. An elevator is available for those who need assistance. They have a wonderful restaurant, on site, that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had lunch mid-shopping and a very kind sales associate, took our basket of purchases and left them at check out for us, so as not to be incumbered while we ate. Our baskets were waiting for us when we were at check out. But after lunch, we headed upstairs to shop those departments. It is well laid out, so much to see and choose from at every turn. There are sales associates there to assist but not pushy or intrusive. Very friendly and helpful. Our purchase baskets had lots of items in them by the time we were ready to leave. This place is a destination in itself. Plan to spend some time and schedule a meal while there. It's a place that we will return. Fun, fun, fun.

Wonderfully different. A place where everyone can shop and eat. Nice and helpful staff. I've been going there for over 20 years and I plan on never stopping.

“Fun shopping and decent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We go here every once in a while because they have such a distinct selection of gifts and they have replica toys from the past. They sell neat things that you may not find in regular stores. Just walking through the place is an adventure!
