    Gray Gardens Home Store: Grace for the Garden

    by goodfish Updated Apr 1, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gray Gardens, Excelsior
    2 more images

    Note: this shop is temporarily closed. Will update if it re-opens.

    If you love your garden, this is the place for you. Gray Gardens carries planters, fountains, statuary and other accents for the garden as well as treasures to grace the inside of your abode as well. Gray's is in (and around) a stately painted-lady house that makes a perfect backdrop for an upscale, somewhat formal inventory of goods. It's a ka-ching but even if you can't afford the price tag, it's still fun to look, and they have some smaller items to fit similarly sized budgets.

    While curious little people will need to observe the "look but don't touch" rule inside, they'll love to explore the goodies in the whimsical shed, front porch and gardens roundabout.

    Capers: Girl Stuff

    by goodfish Updated Oct 29, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Capers is a girly-girl's dream of a store for fun stuff: jewelry, home accents, dinnerware, cards, candles, books and lots more. There's a sweet section for kids, too. I'm a hopeless tomboy and "cute" gives me a migraine but the place has enough non-frilly items to warrant a look when cruising Water Street. Ladies Who Shop, send the guys to the bar while you browse 'cause you might be awhile.

    Leipold's Gifts and Antiques: Needle in a Haystack

    by goodfish Updated Oct 29, 2013

    Leipold's, Excelsior

    This place is a riot. It's wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling with stuff. All kinds of stuff. Toys, party goods, old books, collectables, t-shirts, and stuff I don't even know how to describe. A LOT of stuff. Some of it old, some not-so-old and some of it.... well, one man's junk is another man's treasure, right? It's great fun; just be careful not to lose small persons amidst the piles.
