  • It's not the cleanest of all places. There are some amazing finds at great prices but hardly anything is labeled with a price and it seems like they look at you and decide how much to charge. It's best to shop here with cash. Parking is not free and a nightmare on the weekends.
  • The Santee Alley is one of my favorite shopping places to go when I'm in town. There are lots of hidden gems in there. You can enjoy the shopping and really spend a whole day at it that's for sure. Make sure you bring your walking shoes because you will walk a ton.
