“Different Stores”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Some places the owners were great, others not very friendly...attitude is important. Raining Cats and Dogs was terrific--very helpful, gave my dog water and didn't try to convince me to buy something that was ok but not right.

“Fun to walk around.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

This is a cute little shopping village. It is located in a Village Greene setting with duck ponds and lots of trees and flowers. There is a movie theater in the village - playing 1st run films and several eateries. It is adjacent to the Aquarium.

“Shop Shop 'Til you drop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Rarely have I seen the variety of shops from Navy surplus to old Old-world Irish charm. We lunched on milkshakes and clam cakes, sitting by a fountain well; found our family name in a registry and more trinkets than I knew existed. It's a little pricey, but not more so than the mall.

“Fun place to shop, have wallet ready”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Lots of great fun, hard to find unusual, and handmade items are here. And the food, so many different yummies to pick from for snacking, baking, breakfast and more. Movie theater, resteraunts. A bit expensive so be ready. Many shops do sell online or accept orders and can ship to your home. This is a repeat visit for me.

“Cute but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is a collection of small shops of many different types. It's fun to walk around for a little while, because there is such a wide collection of interesting and unique merchandise, but be prepared for the fact that it's also expensive. Not sure why people said they spent the whole day here. A half hour or so was plenty for me.
