Big national chain - but no worries. Aren't there some "must visit" furniture stores in NC?

Hubby and I bought a household worth of furniture in Hickory. Even with shipping cost, it's worth the travel cost if you're buying lost of furniture. Of course if you live in NC, it's way worth it.

I don't think this qualifies as being really truly unique (there's like 90 stores in 24 different states), but when it comes to clothes shopping - I LOVE Anthropologie! Their clothing can be pricey, but some of the items are unique and most of the times you won't see it on anybody else.

Default Humphrys Flag Company

A very cool store in Philadelphia, they are a manufacturer that operates a retail store in old city Philly.

It is the kind of business that you dont see much of any more.

I wouldn't mind living in a cheese store. Does that count?

-'The Shell Factory' ( Shellfactory.com ) in Fort Myer, Florida. It's one big Florida Souvenir Super Store, with a Nature park (a small zoo pretty much), and a Nightly Water show. It's not just shopping, it's an event.

-'Jungle Jim's' ( Junglejims.com ) in Fairfeild, OH has 6½ acres of floor space, descrided as a theme park of food. I haven't been there, but it's on my list of places to visit.

-I have been to the 'The Tattered Cover bookstore' ( Tatteredcover.com ) in Denver, It's a must see for any book lover. The Downtown store, on Denver's famous 16th Street mall, has three stories of retail space.
