Urban Almanac is not only a quaint general store full of snacks and small accessories, it is a full-service furniture store. Not one of the "big box" stores with a massive selection of unoriginal wares, but rather a design-savvy downtown showroom with knowledgeable and caring staff. Andrew, Susan and the other staff listened patiently as we chose the perfect piece for my home office with custom fabric. We've also purchased small things like bathroom accessories at this store. The tea stand at the exit is a nice touch if you like to linger or if your partner spends more time shopping than you! If you prefer Quality to Quantity, Urban Almanac is for you. But in fact the prices of many of the lines they carry are quite reasonable.
