Thorne’s had lots of great shops! I bought gloves, earrings, toiletries and other small gifts. Shopkeepers were very friendly and gave us details about the area.

I always park in the garage connected to the back of Thornes so I end up going through there and finding something I love. It's got great quirky little shops, a few little cafe's, Paul and Elizabeth's restaurant, and Herrell's ice cream downstairs. Super adorable!
