The first thing I noticed was that there seemed to be a lot of gaudy, flashy knick-knacks in here. Casual clothing; watches; flashy, faux cocktail rings; humorous, women-oriented greeting cards; tiny tee shirts that said things like "Afflect's Wife" or "Kutcher's Wife"; perfumed oil lamp refills (reasonably priced); flashy rhinestone sandals; and what appeared to be custom leather "short" boots. The boots were our favorite items in the store. And at $240 a pair, they should be cute boots! Also found here were moisturizing products for lips and skin made by the infamous "Burt's Bees." I sampled the tester bottle of Burt's Bees body lotion, and it is incredible!
Bottom line is … what did we buy? We bought a large bottle of perfumed oil lamp (Berger lamp) refill for about $15. That was a very reasonable price for such a large bottle, and they had a good selection of scents to choose from. While we had an interest in the boots, the price on them was too steep for our liking, so we walked out of this store with only the oil lamp refill.
I do recommend a visit to this store simply because they had some fun things to look at in here.
