Bargain hunting is an opportunity for shoppers to find rare, one-of-a-kind, samples and limited run clothing, furnishings and more. Shoppers can expect to see apparel, art supplies, home and garden furnishings, local designs, unique fashions, premium denim, handmade hats, and other fabulous accessories all at discount and clearance prices.

The downside is of course many local merchants are strapped and some smaller businesses are closing down. So remember to shop local!
