The Daily Planet
The Counterpoint Records & Books
On this last of the Franklin Avenue series I will leave you with two places that I found equally fun and equally interesting.
1. The Daily Planet..
I have been a customer of this adorable little novelty shop for.. well lets just say a really long time. Stocked full of books, candles, cute jewelry and awesome novelty gifts, this place is the perfect stop if you are in need of an amazing little gift for anyone you know.
One of my favorite little books was bought here about six years ago and believe me I refer to it on the regular..It’s called The Book Of Answers.. and boy does it give me answers..
Just walking into the place there is an instant comfort. Nothing is too expensive and the folks behind the counter are always super nice!!
They also have one of the best racks in the city.. Magazine Racks that is.. You can grab a coffee next door at the Bourgeois Pig and peruse this months French Vogue for hours.
2. Counterpoint Records and Books..
Now this place makes you feel like you have traveled right back in time..from the wood bookshelves to the rare vintage books, the vinyl records, the cassette tapes right down to the old pencil sharpener nailed to the check out counter wall. It even smells vintage! The store is packed..full..of everything.
If you were born in the early eighties or earlier…The Counterpoint will give you some real nostalgic moments.
There are definitely lots of cool places that I ventured into on my Franklin Avenue journey. These last couple of blogs were just a taste. I will leave you to discover the rest..
