Peale's is a mom-and-pop shop that is stuffed full of fabrics and dancewear ... leotards, tights, tap shoes, ballet shoes, gymnastics shoes, etc. They also have a wide array of costumes. When I say "stuffed full" I mean "stuffed full." Don't try to take a stroller into the store ... it is impossible! The fabrics are the types of fabrics used for dance costumes ... so if you need to alter a costume, you go to Peale's to get the type of fabric you need. I love the attention you receive at Peale's ... they treat the customers so well. The prices on the shoes are a bit steep, but the customer service is top-notch. I would recommend Peale's for any and all of your dance needs. If they don't have something, they can help you find it.
