    Shannon Weise Photography: Best Harrisburg Photographer

    by hochbeam Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Shannon and Garrick Dorsett shot our wedding and they are fantastic. They're really fine art photographers and teachers (at HACC), so everything they do in fashion, weddings, or portraits shows that artistic side. If you need a photographer, they're amazing. And look for their names in local exhibits, too.

    What to buy: There are a number of galleries in the city, and the visual arts here are really strong.

    Strawberry Square: More than just shopping...

    by PA2AKgirl Updated Jun 8, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    website pic, will be replaced soon

    Strawberry Square is definitely a highlight of Harrisburg--perhaps one of the best known things about the city, too. It's a major complex, but not as annoying as a shopping mall. The design of the building is beautiful (and award winning), open with a nice atrium. It's a great place to go and have some coffee (at Sparky and Clarks) or the "famous" roly poly sandwiches--but most of all, it's just a nice building and I'm enjoy spending some time there.

    What to buy: The Shops on Third are more upscale than the others--(and that's where Sparky and Clarks is)--but I don't know if I have ever gotten anything here.

    What to pay: average prices in Harrisburg--remember that clothes in PA aren't taxed. Nothing considered a "necessity" is.

    Mantis Collective: Cutting-edge local art...and great gifts

    by hochbeam Updated Dec 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The great Tenth Muse shop on 2nd St. is gone, but there's a new place to get stuff you won't find at the mall: Mantis Collective. This interesting building has hand-made cards and scarves, interesting jewelry, interesting homemade soaps, plus an art gallery.

    Besides, it's a really interesting building, and where else can buy work from an artist with the wonderful name "Tara Chickey"?

    What to buy: Yes, you should buy the eye-catching photographs and artwork. But indulge in some nice soap. Life's too short to bathe with boring soap.

    What to pay: Good prices for quality stuff.
