    Located along this block and within the courtyard is so many wonderful shops, resturants, and other various forms of entertainment. I have not been down here in such a long time and I was simply amazed how they have transformed and restored so many of the wonderful historical buildings for all to enjoy.

    I thought this is unique, why? How many city halls have a souvenir shops? Not many and you get to walk into the building to see more.

    Located on the second floor in room S228, they have T-shirts, posters, mugs, puzzles, tiles, postcards, tote bags and holiday ornaments. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.

    Nicole's Gourmet Foods: French Gourmet Market in South Pas

    What to buy: Chocolate, truffle salt

    What to pay: More than average

    Nothing but sunglasses, well, also a few reading glasses. All the designer brands ie. Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Gucci, Burberry, Oakley, Ray Bans and more. Sunglasses can run $50 up to $300. Not bad compared to prices in Paris where designer sunglasses can cost you $2,000 at the Galeries Lafayette.

    Crate and Barrel: Excellent Home Store

    by GracesTrips Written May 3, 2009

    If you need stuff for the kitchen, this is a wonderful store to check out. They don't have everything but what they do have is very good quality. Dishes, linens, glasses, serving dishes, etc. They also have furniture but I'm not so crazy about it. Crate and Barrel can be found in various cities through SoCal and the rest of the United States.

    Vroman's Bookstore (on Colorado): Lovely charm & aroma of Vromans

    by marinarena Written Sep 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here is a book and unique gift shop lover paradise. Even if you don't like to read, you'll enjoy the ambience of the place as a great place to meet up with friends or for a date.) The indie Vroman's has a rather sizeable collection of books, often featuring rare and eccentric titles. If you can't find what you're looking for here, they probably just had it or have the capability to order it. If books aren't your thing, how about a calendar, decorative coffee mug or fancy lotion bottle? There is such a variety of quirky and dainty elegant gift items are for sale here. You must come in to see all it has to offer.
    Note:
    Vroman's is a 2 story building.
    bargain area

    Tiffany & Company: Upscale Jewelry

    by GracesTrips Updated Aug 25, 2008

    I'm not too fond of this particular jewelry store (myself) but I see lots of people shopping here. I go in every once in a while to check out what they have. Sometimes, they have something very nice but it usually cost way too much!

    Anthropologie: Clothing, Housewares, Misc.

    by GracesTrips Updated Jan 28, 2008

    Just love this store! Not only do they carry fashionable women's clothing, they also sell kitchen ware, bedding, books, candles, bathing goodies, perfume and jewelry. They don't sell purses. I know because this particular day I was shopping for one and didn't see ANY.

    It's a neat store with unique items that you probably would find at most stores. There are several Anthropologies throughout the USA but not so many that you have one in every city. Twenty-three of them in the entire state of California.

    Leonida's Chocolate Cafe: The Closest it comes to European Chocolate

    by GracesTrips Updated Dec 20, 2007
    1 more image

    Chocolate Store and Coffee Bar, this is not the best I ever had but it certainly is better than anything else in the Los Angeles area when it comes to chocolate. The marzipan is a disappointment so don't have that. But the truffles are wonderful and some of the chocolate hazelnut morsels are fantastic!

    Buying any chocolate from this store will set you back a pretty penny! It's not cheap. Six pieces will cost you about $8.

    Design Within Reach: European Wares in Pasadena

    by GracesTrips Updated Dec 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cool store! Modern designs for the home. From dinnerware, glassware, office, toys, utencils, etc. with a flair of unique lines with usefulness. I guess that doesn't really describe much. For example, I thought this silver twisted piece of metal stuck into a lime to be used to extract lime juice was pretty neat. It was cool looking and useful.

    What to buy: They had lots of stuff to buy. Lots to look at. Wine knick knacks and gadgets. Knives, watches, vases, journals, etc.

    What to pay: A lot!

    Sur La Table: The Ultimate Kitchen Store!

    by GracesTrips Written Nov 26, 2007

    If you like to cook then this store will cost you a fortune! Oh my gosh! They have sooo much stuff and anything to everything you could imagine for cooking. So, I try to restrain myself when I walk past this store and not go in. Once I'm in, I'm bound to find something to buy. They sell quality items and therefore, it ain't cheap. (Yes, ain't is not a word but Americans use it to mean "is not"). Fun store, have fun shopping!

    Miller Alley: Still in Old Town Pasadena

    by GracesTrips Written Nov 26, 2007

    This is just off of Colorado Blvd. in Old Town Pasadena. It's literally an Alley that you have to walk down and it opens up into a somewhat courtyard with some great restaurants and shops. The clothing stores are a little pricey but fun and unique. A specialty bikini shop has a fantastic selection. A superb Gelato shop across from the Laemmle Theatre. Great sushi at Sushi Roku.

    DSW: The Ultimate Shoe Store

    by GracesTrips Updated Nov 26, 2007
    2 more images

    Designer Show Warehouse (I think that's what it stands for). Not too many of them in Southern California. I feel fortunate that there is one in West Covina (where I live) and one in Pasadena (near where my boyfriend lives). For every $250 you spend, you will receive a certificate worth $10-$25 towards your next purchase. The points changes depending on what kind of store promotions are going on. You also get a $10 certificate when it's your birthday. The shoes are pretty reasonable even though the Pasadena store also sells some major designer brands such as Jimmy Choo and Coach.

    What to buy: Shoes

    Sun 11am-7pm, Mon-Sat 10am-9pm

    What to pay: $50 average
