  • French Market

    New Orleans Shopping

    There's a guy at this market selling sheets, branded "Sanders Collection" that are marked on the front of the package, in great big letters "1500 THREAD COUNT 100% EGYPTIAN COTTON". If you read the smaller print on the back, you'll find out that they are actually made from "micro fiber yarns... with the soft touch as a 1500 THREAD COUNT 100%...

  • Outlet Stores

    Orlando Shopping

    The transportation company we use in Orlando surprised us with a complimentary discount card. The driver explained that if we present the card in any mall/outlet mall in Orlando we can get the coupon book free of charge.

    The Embarcadero Center is a mixed office and shopping center built in the early 1970s as part of an "urban renewal" program for the Embarcadero area of downtown San Francisco. It is between the Financial District and the Ferry Building. Because of its location, it tends to be rather empty and closed up after 5 pm and on weekends, since the area is...

  • Markets

    Cancún Shopping

    This is the market where the locals go. It is called Market 23. It is a bit difficult to find and some of the venders can't speak English. We had to ask a few times before we received enough directions to find it, but it was worth the trouble. We found some great buys on hand painted pottery, masks, and other such local crafts. Local crafts are the...

  • Santee Alley

    Los Angeles Shopping

    FABRIC, and discounted designer inspired items for a small fraction of the price. There is every type of fabric that you could imagine here, all on the tall 60" bolts.

    This two story maze of shops is laden with everything "Mexican." One of the stalls we frequented was the Artesanias Los Gemelos run by Dora. Here you can find scores of T-shirts, silver jewelry, leather goods, hundreds of handicraft items and home-style lunches. The rule of the day is to barter for the best price, but beware the sales people are...

  • Downtown

    Montreal Shopping

    As made obvious from the store's name, they sell linens. But they also sell small appliances, kitchen stuff, and decor. It's more high-end than departments stores like La Baie so it's a lot pricier, but all their stuff is good quality. Similar to a department store, but not big enough to be one, and most of what they sell is related to linens...

  • Filene's Basement

    Boston Shopping

    Bargain shoppers haven at Filene's Basement. My daughter was there for three months during the show she was performing. She said she was there almost every day. I was there for a long weekend and I was there almost every day and could have related to my daughter. Great bargains to be had if you can wade through all the merchandise and dodge all the...

  • Robson Street

    Vancouver Shopping

    While I am generally not an advocate of chain stores, and most especially MEGA chainstores, I mention the Virgin Megastore in Vancouver because of it's cool and eclectic selection of books. While they did not have as many books as a bookstore might the ones they did have were great, ranging in subject from all types of music to obscure and cultish...

  • Ala Moana Shopping Center

    Honolulu Shopping

    Before the Mall of America opened in Minneapolis, Ala Moana Shopping Center was the largest mall in the US. It has enough shops so that you can find almost everything you need.

  • Sawgrass Mills

    Fort Lauderdale Shopping

    After living here for over ten years, I make a list all year and then do giant marathon trips to this Mall. You need planning and strategy to make a route through the 3/4 mile with a map! I save tons on the stuff I need. This is one of the best things to do in Fort Lauderdale, especially if you are tired of the sun or stuck in rain . . . They have...

  • Bayside Market Place

    Miami Shopping

    I like that is was a nice shopping area. I didn't like that it seemed to cater to the tourists. It was nice to see the marina right there. Some expensive looking yachts. The restaurants looked very affordable. Not sure how good. There was an interesting looking burger place. I think you customize your burger the way you want it. Some nice dress...

  • Shopping in Vieux Quebec

    Quebec Shopping

    The day we visited the Chateau Frontenac we were told there were 1000 students on a visit to the city and wherever we went there were crods of students. We thought we might be safe in the Chateau's shopping arcade, however it was worse as the the hotel was 100 years old and reflected the style of that period, narrow corridors and small shops. For...

  • El Mercardo

    San Antonio Shopping

    My friend, Shanna, brought me to the Mercado when we were having a mini-vacation in San Antonio. Her family regularly goes here but I had never been, nor did I even know about it. My Eyewitness guidebook had suggested this place for the restaurant Mi Tierra(but it was way too packed-2 hour wait) to get in. So we decided to shop and get out of...

  • Art & Art Galleries

    Sedona Shopping

    These are a series of shops in the more popular area to go and buy. Most shops are upscale, and even more expensive than other stores in town; like in high end big time. However, there are some shops that seemed a bit more reasonable, but you have to look hard. There are 50 stores and restaurants total, with 6 being eateries, 16 art galleries, and...

  • Disneyland

    Anaheim Shopping

    When you are in Disneyland and on a travel budget looking for deals, don't buy the t-shirts inside the Disneyland. As for me, I went to California T-shirts (Yes, that's the name of the little tiny store). Look for it on South Harbor Road or call them for directions once you are in Anaheim. The t-shirts are dirt cheap! The store is in a little...

  • Souvenirs

    Mazatlán Shopping

    I priced good tequila (Anejo) in town and it cost as much as at home in California! Finally on our way out, I got a decent deal at the airport. It was about $32 for a bottle that would retail for $50 in the U.S.

  • Tan-A Supermarket

    Richmond Shopping

    Sells a variety of Asia groceries, impressed with what they carry but not happy with the service.

This store take cash only, which I only found out when I the lady rang me up. I would go back...

    Unfortunately the Utility Shack closed (at least temporarily) in late December 2013 after 40 years of buying directly from Native American artisans and selling jewelry, pottery, baskets, rugs, etc. The Stouts must deal with some health issues but have left open the possiblity of reopening. Meanwhile, they will be missed. Don't let the name or the...

  • Verkamp's Curios

    Grand Canyon Shopping

    Since Grand Canyon Village seemed to be a central hub for those enjoying the sights of the Grand Canyon, we expected to have some difficulty finding a parking spot, but we found a space behind Verkamp's Curios. Verkamp's has been in business for over 100 years. There are a number of gift/souvenir shops throughout the Grand Canyon, but it's hard to...
