When you have selected an item for purchase, a sharp-eyed hostess will take it to the front counter and put it under your name. Then, when you have made all of your purchases, it is easy to "check" out at one central location. Shop carefully, as you don''t have much recourse if you are unhappy. I have bought antique dolls, silver, pottery, cookbooks, and furniture.
