I know I talk about After Stonewall a lot, but if you haven't been, you should drop by (370 Bank Street - between James and Gilmour streets) and check out the 60 artists featured. My in-laws have a tradition of just saying a store they like for Christmas, and I've picked this place two years running. Asked me about my bracelet? This is where I got it. - Nathan Smith
