|a place I might miss if it had been open when we moved to lansdale|
15 years ago. The sign still hangs there, unless Sandy blew it off.

If you suddenly received a ton of money and could open up some kind of store or service just for the pleasure of having it (assume it wouldn’t have to be too financially successful!), what would it be?
A place to celebrate a few of our favorite things perhaps. Great coffee, live (when not recorded) jazz, books, and art. And of course some Jesuit spirituality thrown in for good measure.
What service or store that no longer exists do you miss most?
The Spice Smuggler used to be in Lansdale. A splendid place that sold bulk spices, loose teas, coffee beans, and some fine chocolate.
Live jazz concerts everywhere.
a place next to a Rita's Water Ice in lansdale ~ A deli followed by a deli followed by a deli followed by a shipping store followed by a cell phone place followed by a pawn shop. Luckily the second deli moved into the Lansdale Train Station, A Little Something Nice (no live jazz but a great owner who can croon to the jazz he plays on the stereo, good coffee, fine pastries, ...)
We’ve all seen stores that combined books and records, beer and laundry, or coffee and whatever. One of my favorite places to get coffee in Honolulu is a cafe and florist, and there is a car garage that’s also a diner in a town nearby. What would be a cool hybrid of two disparate ideas for somewhere you’d like to hang out?
Stained Glass and succulents (what gets my fingers at home, and at work)
