Polka Dog was inspired by a sato named Pearl from Puerto Rico (my 2 dogs are also satos). The make fresh baked dog treats in so many flavors it is hard to choose! There are specialty items such as jerky and chews as well. My dogs love the lamb jerky and peanut butter and jelly biscuits. They also offer a small boutique with beds, collars, leashes, toys, clothing and seasonal items and stock many brands of dog and cat food. Make sure you bring your dog, the staff is more than happy to let them sample the treats and choose what they like.
What to buy: My dogs say - one of each! All of the treats have been a big hit with them.

I love Filene's. I have never actually been in the REAL store, but I love the basement. It's always one of my highlights of going to Boston because I do love to shop. It's not for the faint of heart, though-it gets kind of crazy in there. Not very organized and hordes of people. And if you're not into sales (I have friends that refuse to shop sales because it's somehow demeaning of them) then it probably won't be for you. BUT, if you like heavily discounted clothes, jewlry, and chocolate then you should check it out.
What to pay: They're supposed to mark down things every week but I think they sneak by on it and don't. For every week it's supposed to be marked down by 25%.

In 2000, the Landmark Center reopened its doors to the public. Built in 1930, this massive Art Deco building was the former home of the Sears Warehouse and Catalog Center. It stood unoccupied, and decaying for years until bought by the Abbey Group, which restored it and adapted it to today's standards, with offices on the upper floors and retail stores on the ground floor. It has won several awards for historic preservation.
It sits at the crossing of Park Drive, Boylston St., and Brookline Ave. and the Fenway T stop is right next to the parking lot.
The upper floors house many businesses, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and the Harvard School of Public Health. There is also a day care facility.
What to buy: Some of what you'll find here:
The Art Store
Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Boston Sports Club
AMC Theater - 13 screens, all with stadium seating

The Macy's in Boston is typical of any city Macy's store. They carry a large selection of housewares, jewelry, shoes, clothing and cosmetics. Macy's wasn't on out list of places to go but we wound up here in search of an item for my wife.
My wife has been hunting for the past three years for a hard to find shade of lipstick that she adores. After searching every store that carries the line it was miraculously here. The sales associate found three lipsticks in her desired shade and we bought all three. I was elated that we finally found what she was earching for so desperately.
What to pay: The lipstick was $14 each.

Beyond the typical kitschy Harvard souvenirs, Harvard Coop sells serious stuff like specialty books and the range is quite extensive. I could easily spend hours here - but wasn't in the mood to carry heavy hardbound books around with me. In case you need a caffeine fix or a hot drink on a cold autumn day - or just a shelter from the rain (my main reason for going here) - there is a Starbucks outlet inside that attracts students and tourists alike.

Christmas in New England had a large selection of Christmas ornaments. Many of the ornaments had a New England theme to it such as Lobsters, Seashells, Sailboats, Red Sox and Patriots. Liz and I enjoyed wandering through and seeing some of the quirky ornaments especially the wine themed ornaments.

Lord & Taylor is a department store that carries men's clothing, women's clothing, children's clothing, cosmetics, housewares, jewelry, shoes and accesories.
What started as a stop to use the restroom rurned into a shopping trip for me. There was an incredible winter sale going on at Lord & Taylor. While we wandered through the men's department; a jacket caught Liz's eye. The jacket was a nice brown suede. We found my size and I tried it on. The jacket fit perfectly and I like the style and material. The jacket was on sale at 50% off which was a steal; so of course I had to buy it.
What to buy: I bought a nice brown suede jacket.
What to pay: With the 50% off the tricket Price; I paid $175.

As in all libraries and museums of this sort, the gift shop is a good collection of memorabilia and good quality gift items. There are always good books for sale as well. I chose one of Kennedy's books which has just come back into print again after many years. It's as relevant today as the day he wrote it. A Nation of Immigrants Also picked up one of Bobby's books, To Seek A Newer World .
How did they have time to write in such short lives?
Also couldn't resist a campaign button which I tend to collect. This one has a bit of wit....
What to buy: Books, ties, videos, games, coffee cups and the like.....
