Williams Sonoma is a favorite store for my wife and I. My wife loves to cook; she can find everything she wants here from pots, pans, appliances, kitchen utensils, tableware, specialty foods and knives. Even though I don't cook; I love looking at the gear and gadgets.

Restoration Hardware has a little bit of everything when you want to decorate your home: bedding, curtains, bath towels, mirrors, etc. Over the years we have found some excellent items to brighten up our home.
Recently the store wa renovated and I can honestly say we are not thrilled. The items seem so boring and lacking in color. If it continues in this way; I don't see any purchases from here in our future.

Barnes & Noble is a chain of book stores that carry every type of book from children's, cooking, travel, fiction, newspapers, even CD, DVD's and accessories.
Although I have a kindle I still enjoy "real" books especially travel books and guides. Barnes & Noble is always a first stop when I am interested in finding a book for an upcoming trip. This particular location has a decent travel section and I have found several good guides, maps and books over the years.
What to buy: Our last visit to Barnes & Noble I found the latest DK book for an upcoming trip.

Yanke Candle is always a favorite stop for us when we are in the Pallisades Mall. We both love their candles, votives and home fragrances. I must admit I do get a headache after spending prolonged amounts of time in the store; the sents can bee too overpowering.
Some of our favorite fragrances are trawberry Fields, Beach Holiday, Cinnamon Stick, French Vanilla, Harvest and Pumpkin Spice.

Bed, Bath & beyond is a retail store that specializes in products for the home. They carry everything for the kitchen, bath, bedroom and for entertaining. There are small kitchen appliances, dinnerware, comforter sets, bath towels, furniture, candles and more. There is a large selection of items in every price range and to fit every budget.
We often find ourselves in one of these stores to pick up something for the house. I prefer the store in Elmsford since they have a larger and more varied selection of items.
What to buy: Sadly, nothing this visit but we found what we needed in their Elmsford location.

Honestly, I really don't shop much at this store but recently I needed to pick up a few small items for my new home and I was in the shopping center and decided to stop by to see if they had what I was looking for.
The store is laid out pretty well with similar items lumped together. They carry a very large selection of house hold goods like kitchen items and gadgets, everything you need for your bath including co-ordinated shower curtains, towels, soup dishes, etc. and they also carry a large selection of bath towels and rugs. They have some nice bedding ensambles (sheets, pillow cases, comforters and matching curtains.) as well as picture frames, photo albums, candles, wall art, mirrors and small furniture like end tables, closets, lamps and other type items. You'll also find seasonal items like summer bbq items and Christmas decorations.
What to buy: I purchased a few picture frames, a vase, a some kitchen gadgets.
What to pay: Anywhere from inexpensive to expensive

I love reading and I always enjoy some time at the book store just looking over their aisle and aisle of books. I use to come specifically to the Palisades to come to this bookstore as it always had a nice selection of New York themed books which were good for gift giving.
This Barns & Noble is quite large, and you will find they stock all the lastest books, cds, movies, magazine section, scrap booking items, calendars and journals as well as other reading items.
One of my favorite sections is of course the travel section. I would come here and spend hours just reading perusing all the books of places either I was dreaming of visiting or actually visitng at the time. I also enjoy looking through the aisle with all the wonderful cook books as well as the home decorating section.
They have a Starbucks here as well as a children's section with a great selection of books and
What to buy: I recently bought a journal for my next trip as well as a new DK travel book. I picked up a "potty training" book for Leo as well as some stickers :)

Every time we go to the Palisades Mall we make a pit stop with the boys into Fuzzywigs. They have all sorts of candy and treats for those of us with a sweet tooth to choose from. Richie and I were nuts about the M&M candies in black and orange. I've tried a couple of things from here, most recently chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate covered graham crackers. I have to say the the graham crackers are absolutely yummy.
What to buy: candy
What to pay: ????

The Rocky Mountain Candy Company is a national chain that carries chocolates, fudge, caramel apples, boxed chocolates and other candies. Liz and I are familar with this store in Dallas and in Sedona. We have loved their specialty dipped apples in the past so we were excited to see this store in the Pallisades Mall.
Liz bought a regular caramel apple for $4.95. It looked good but upon biting into it...Liz wasn't happy. The apple was too musy and the caramel was grainy. She was not happy and threw out the apple after three bites. Maybe it was just one bad apple or the person who made them that day. I told her not to give up and the next time we are here we will try again.
What to pay: Dipped apples can range from $4.95 for a regular caramel to $8.95 for a Rocky Road Caramel Apple.

Our boys can't walk past a Build-A-Bear store without at least a little browsing. They love to check out the latest and greatest bear, cat, dog, monkey, lion, tiger. I really enjoy the seasonal animals they offer like the bear with hearts for Valentines Day or the bear with Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day. My one and only Build-A-Bear bear is the shamrock bear. Richie got it for me last Spring just cause he was thinking of me and he knew I had never had anyone make me a bear. Yup he's sappy and sweet like that. Patrick now has 2 animals a bear and a floppy ear rabbit. The clerks have cute little things they make kids do as they fill and fluff the animals. One of them is to have them kiss a little heart before they put it in the animal. After your animal is stuffed and sewn together you can take it over to the air shower and fluff him up. There are loads of outfits and accessories for you to chose from. Prices can range from a few dollars to over $20 so watch out. The last step is to make a certificate for the animal. This is where you or you child can name the animal.
This store is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
What to buy: any of the cute animals that catch your eye
What to pay: The cheapest bear starts at $10 without any clothes or accessories.
