So many cool interesting places in this marketplace. You can find just about anything here. Awesome Tibetan shop with tons of deals. We enjoyed the olive oil tasting bar. Hope to stop by in again to check out the rest of the stores.

I like to browse the shops on three levels, buy unusual gifts and have a bite. Bookstore, chocolate shop, affordable jewelry and clothing, trendy shoes, "penny" candy shop, wonderful ice cream, fresh flowers, Tibetan gifts, stationery, organic food store, award-winning vegetarian restaurant, greetings cards for one dollar, and more. Indoor walkway leads to a parking garage; elevator in the building.

There are small accessory, clothes, bakery, floristry shops, ect. In this building. Most clothing stores are expensive but the place has a lot of items to look at and explore. You can spend about an hour and a half going through all the stores

Very eclectic group of shops inside one area. The door looked normal, as if you were walking into a regular store. But then, like the Wizard of Oz, it opened up into a huge mall type facility with quaint and unusual shops!

A typical kluge of small shops with a coffee bar. By far the flower shop was the best store in the mall.

Fabulous option to house numerous stores! park in their parking lot -first hour is free,then $1.oo per hour. We spent two hours in the neighborhoold -browsing and buying. The stores we ventured in had plenty of employees who were willing to assist. Would love to return during the Christmas holidays.
