My Favorite Gift Shop. Gringo Jones is my favorite place to purchase gifts. From our block christmas party exchange gift to wedding gifts for friends they have helped in solving the personality to gift equation. They are great at giving advice or just helping you figure out what it is you are looking for. The icing on the cake is when they load it to your car.
A different surrounding. I visit this place almost quarterly and today I was severely disappointed. Where are the guys that would offer assistance and tell you about the findings in the store? Instead, an old noisy, very loud lady behind the counter and a young check out girl were discussing a red vase that might offer oriental designs, never acknowledgingmy being at check out or even saying thanks for my purchase! "Do you need a bag?" The boxer dogs are still there, however, and some older man sitting on a sofa to the left of the entrance drinking coffee. The store smells more of mold than before and doggie remains. The store next door was a lot more pleasant! I'm sorry for the lack of more selection as before. I've spent a lot of money there in the past, but the offerings now are quite slim.
Once you've got your house furnished, it's time to start decorating the garden..
Merchandise spills out the doors and onto the sidewalk--an effective lure.
Need a suit of armor? A Victorian-style terrarium? Urn, trellis, decorative edging, gazing ball, fountain? It can all be had here, at a pretty good price, too. Shopping is a bit like a treasure hunt at Gringo Jones, where you wind your way through one room, then another, then out onto the patio. Good stuff is stacked everywhere, and sometimes good stuff is covering up even more good stuff, so take your time and investigate. A good deal of the merchandise is metal, though you will also find concrete window boxes and ceramic pots.
