Sense of Wonder-Gorgeous Store
Sense of Wonder is a gift shop, art gallery, jewelry store, card shop like you've never seen. They have the most unique and interesting home furnishings and gifts. Yes, some prices are high, but I always find wonderful things that are in my budget. They don't mind of you browse around for a long time without buying, but that probably won't happen. I love catalogs and little gift shops and boutiques, but I still see things here that I have not seen anywhere else. Bonus: the Reading store is near Plaster Funtime and Walgreens, so you can find an excuse to go there.
I think the Reading store reopened, but is on a side street now.
It's actually in North Andover.
The Reading store closed in September 08. Andover is still open. I LOVE this store too!
