This is not an all day adventure, but is a cool spot for some specialized shopping.I personally do not enjoy shopping in malls and the typical commercial confines.This is a much better experience. For me this is a rainy day place .

The building is a converted factory where they made shirts, and there are pictures and garment displays throughout. Now there are a lot of boutique and one-of-a-kind stores inside that are fun and fanciful and worth the visit. Stop at The Stone Stash if you...More

Where I live in New England, there are three mills within ten miles that have been converted into arts/crafts venues like this one. I did a very quick tour of the place because it was a humid, uncomfortable day and the building had no air...More
