One of the great things about East West is that it is just down the street from Borders Books and Music. Why is that nice? Because Borders employees realize that their selection of New Age, Metaphysical, and Eastern Philosophy is not nearly as extensive as East West, and refers customers to them on a regular basis. East West carries a lot of books you won't find in the chains, which makes it the first stop if you want to explore your spirituality. They also carry an assortment of trinkets, statuettes, and the like.
