Veranda is a nice store, and they have cute home accessories. I love their selection of dinnerware and Italian pottery; it is truly unique to have such an extensive selection in a small store. They also have cute jewelry. However, I generally avoided Veranda because the employees would follow students around as if I was going to steal something. It happened each time I went into the store; even other college age girls would follow me around straightening up things I had not even touched. I noticed the same thing happening to other younger patrons, and it happened even when I was well-dressed. Didn't happen when I went in with my mother. Just not worth being treated that way when there are plenty of other stores that want college students' business.
