Don't let the name deceive you. Cole's carries everything from washers and dryers to china and crystal. Being from this town, we registered for many of our housewares there when we were getting married. Cole's helped us keep a thoroughly detailed record of what gifts we'd received and from whom, which really took the headache out of writing thank yous (unlike other larger retailers like Macy's or Dillard's). There were a couple of companies that carried things that we wanted to put on our registry, so Cole's ordered them especially for us! Now I go shopping during the holidays for gifts here!
