Shopping


What do you think of when you think of Chinese checkers?  Shudder to think what the answer may be if you ask anyone under the age of forty. Those of us ‘in the know’ remember lazy Saturday afternoons in the kitchen at grandma’s, playing the board game with our cousins.  Relive your fondest memories in one of our terrific antique stores downtown.  Grab an iced mocha from the bistro and explore further, finding wonderful boutiques and specialty stores. Or, consider stopping in one of the galleries just off the square to see what inspires local artists.

Looking for something special to wear? From chic to funky, boutique to chain, you’ll find the right look in one of our stores. And guys, you won’t feel the need to sit outside a dressing room while she tries on a gazillion new outfits.  In addition to several sporting goods stores that can suit you up in gear for the sport of your choice, we can also outfit you in custom men’s clothing.

Don’t be afraid to explore. You never know – behind the door may be the find of a lifetime.
