The treasure hunt continues. Shelves here are filled with salt lamps, fountains and walls of incense; glass cases filled with silver jewelry and loose beads waiting for your inner creator. Housewares like wind chimes and coffee table books are priced so reasonably, it’s easy to find yourself playing house. And with a plentiful assortment of feng shui supplies and spiritual items, it’s no wonder a ten-minute visit turns into an hour. Weaving through the aisles is as calming as it is charming.
