    We love this place. Make sure to stop into the Basics for some oatmeal pancakes while you are there. They are the best!

    No access form lower level to upper stores if you have stroller or wheelchair. Make sure and enter from the street level and work down if you have one of these. Nice little shopping but nothing major. Worth stopping to check out while in the area. Lots more to see and walk to around here. Also a free trolly to anywhere.

    Poor selection of stores though we enjoyed Paddy's Hollow. Walking downtown afterwards was better.

    Old antique kind/style of shop. Nothing to buy really. Saw some cute shirts but tgey were way over priced. Similar to a museum just nice to walk through and look at things, nothing more

    Historical building that holds many shops. Very picturesque, I go there specifically to shop at down to earth which is one of the rarest essential oil, homeopathic and insence creatrix in Wilmington. Exquisite all natural artisan gemstone jewelry. Every Goddess should check it out! Rainbow friendly! Eva and her staff are down to earth, knowledgeable and friendly.
