If you're looking for a true adventure in shopping, then you'll enjoy a trip to Building 19. It's similar to shopping in an ancient Bazaar, only updated to modern times. You won't have to haggle over prices, but you won't know what you'll find i the store from one week to the next. There's a shoe department for men's and women's shoes, where you can find anything from cheap sneakers to expensive department-store shoes which have been marked down to $15-20, because they don't come with their designer box. There's always a selection of men's and women's clothing, but you won't find all sizes in all styles; Building 19 usually purchases close-outs or insurance claims. One year, there was a full array of Callaway golf wear, which the shop was unable to sell that season, due to hurricane damage. Another time, there was a shipment of Wedgewood tea cups. If there's a bargain out there, Building 19 buys it, and offers low prices. But when it's gone, it's gone.
You can find excellent bargains on books. children's books, gift items such as candles and glassware, wrapping paper, greeting cards "two for a buck", crossword puzzle books, cookware, and mattresses and Oriental rugs. There's free coffee, and on the 19th of every month, the store offers refreshments.
If you enjoy finding an unexpected bargain, this is the place to visit every week, and check out what's new.
