If you like exploring as much as you like shopping, spend an hour at this quirky, eclectic shop near the Oriental Hotel. Organization is, apparently, an afterthought judging by the piles of baskets, farming equipment, and other cool curios.
Those with more mainstream taste will (eventually) find plenty of great housewares and decorator items. Flatware and other tableware are very popular here.
