    Something Different: And now for ....

    by kymbanm Updated Feb 8, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not just for hoochies

    The window display made me think this shop was simply full of spandex, lycra and 'hoochie' type attire ... I was entirely mistaken.

    The owner is a hispanic woman who caters to clients of all sizes and tastes. She hand picked various outfits for me, and used my likes and dislakes from these choices to come up w/ more choices .. a talented customer service professional :)

    What to buy: I bought a skirt, a pair of dressy black pants, and a little shirt that was a bit more casual ....

    What to pay: I bought all three items for under 50$

    GD Bazaar: Another little gem ...

    another hidden treasure

    At first I thought this little place was a thrift store - but as I was peering through the window, I spotted a selection of what appeared to be Greecian gauze clothing ... hmmmm... The shopkeeper came out and started telling me about some of the items I was looking at in the window .. and yup, it was Greecian gauze :)
    Though it was more than I expected, the quality was wonderful - I have another Greecian gauze dress that is over 20 years old and still looks great so .....

    What to buy: I bought a gauze dress w/ a fitted bodice after trying on several items ... I also liked the gauze skirt - nice waistband - but liked the dress more.

    What to pay: Each gauze item was about 50$ - like I said, more than I would have thought, but cheaper than a trip to Greece, just not quite as much fun ...

    The Jeweled Castle: Incense and fairies - oh, my!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An enchanting store indeed :)

    How can I describe this cornucopia of all things fantasy? The window displays were awesome, but still did not prepare me for the real deal when I actually entered the store ..... the shop is filled w/ the scent of their home-made custom incense, deep colors, wonderful instore displays for pagan jewelry, fairies, Egyptian, Hindu and other faiths. I was so overwhelmed I had to circle the interior a few times before I could focus enough to figure out what I wanted!

    What to buy: The best prices I've ever seen on Nag Champa - 250 gms for about 30$ !!!!!!!!!! I also bought the most gorgeous batik/tie-dye/silk screened Tshirts ever :) and a wonderful silver and Opal watch - I love picking out gifts for my whole year when I travel!

    What to pay: I spent about 100$ on a huge bag of gifts - I had a blast in here!
