this store is my first stop for any gift buying...especially for home and body gifts. the service isn't fantastic...but it's forgiveable for the quality of's tiny and popular--so claustrophobics might want to prepare for quick exit...if they can take their eyes off the merchandise.

Service is NOT GOOD

I was in there today - a Sunday-. Yeah, its the holiday season but you don't need five working a store that size. No room to move around but that is not the worst thing- the sales people hounding over you is annoying. I picked up one item and the clerk stared me up and down to make sure I did not steal it. Not the first time they have made me feel that way. And my roommate, as well. We are yuppies, just like the majority of folks in the neighborhood. If you have an issue with shoplifters --and as a person who worked retail for 11 years-- maybe its because you have to much volume. However, employees that stare you down are not a plus. Great place for gifts and its a great walking distance from my home however the personnel - including the snobby attitude, it's retail for good sakes- need to bring it down a level.

one stop gift shop

This exceptional neighborhood gift shop was my main stop for holiday shopping for my grandchildren, two daughters, their husbands, and hard-to-shop-for family friends. Despite the hectic holiday crowd, the employees were charming and helpful; in less than half an hour, I had put together a dozen Christmas presents with the suggestions by the knowledgeable young storeowner and a young man who worked there. The presents were a hit among the 2-year-old (a handmade panda bear made of pink yarn) to 62-year-old (beautiful silver frame). I plan to go there again soon.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
