    Boo Radley’s is named after the character in "To Kill A Mockingbird," who collected unusual and sometimes wacky items. It isn’t the usual gift shop. They carry cards, t-shirts, toys, books, and a lot of “different” stuff. You can find everything from a “Fighting Marmots” t-shirt to talking key chains.

    Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

    White Elephant Surplus Stores: Lots of "Stuff"

    by JessieLang Written Jul 25, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The original store is on North Division St., not far from downtown. It was here before I moved to this area 40 years ago. They opened another one in Spokane Valley some years later. They are both stuffed full and jumbled, but fun to poke around in.

    They have hunting, fishing & camping gear, and a lot of other things also. There is a large selection of model kits (cars, planes) and some other hobby stuff. I have found everything from kids' board games to dusty souvenirs from Spokane's world fair (35 years ago.)

  • Banana Republic, Ambercrombie and Fitch, etc.: Make time to go downtown

    by truemtnative Written Mar 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The malls in Spokane are great, but going down to River Front Park and going to some of the stores there is a pretty enjoyable experience. Nordstroms, Banana Republic and Ambercrombie and Fitch aren't in the Northtown Mall so it's well worth the trip downtown to at least browse through these stores.

    What to buy: Whatever looks good to you!

    What to pay: The stores downtown are a little more expensive so don't shop there if your funds are limited, it will just depress you.

    Chocolate Apothecary: The best Gourmet Chocolate I have EVER TASTED!

    by alpham4le Updated Dec 23, 2010

    While traveling to Spokane, WA there are many places to visit and see. One of the most interesting and historic places to visit is The Flour Mill, located behind the Spokane Arena near Downtown Spokane.

    The Flour Mill is a collection of various shops selling all sorts of wonderful things, but the one place I enjoyed the most was Chocolate Apothecary. This unique gourmet chocolate shop had everything! Including rich flavorful drinking chocolates that make my mouth water just thinking about it! They had a ton of novelty chocolate items such as chocolate vitamins and even chocolate bacon!

    If you are visiting Spokane, WA anytime soon I definitely suggest checking this place out!

    What to buy: Gourmet Chocolates, Novelty Gifts, Drinking Chocolates

    What to pay: $10 on average.

    Spokane Public Market: Local produce, etc.

    by JessieLang Written Jun 13, 2012

    Spokane now has a nice indoor market with a number of vendors selling fresh produce, meats and cheeses, baked goods, crafts, and ready-to-eat treats. Their website has a list of vendors and what they sell.

    Parking is available at Second and Browne for $1, but is free with purchase at the Market.

    At present, open Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

    Note: Sun Dry Goods shares the building, so have a look while you are there. They are also just one block from the frozen yogurt shop I reviewed under restaurants, so I usually go to both places once I'm parked.
