Congratulations to Fox Fine Jewelry of Ventura who won first place in the national contest for jewelry stores, “America’s Coolest Stores!” A panel of ten experts in the jewelry and retail field selected Fox Fine Jewelry as the “America’s Coolest Store” out of 23,000 jewelry stores.
As Americans, we have the idea that we need to get our money's worth for just about everything. I am definitely guilty of it, especially when it comes to food. The problem with our nation's idea of "get your money's worth" is that people interpret it as "lots of food to eat for cheap." But what if we had a new interpretation of that phrase? What if we got our money's worth by eating smaller portions with better ingredients? At Chocolatine, that is what they are all about; a sit down eatery providing a menu of home-made quality items with all the personal touches that reflect their French backgrounds.
Buffalo Records finds its new home in a white adobe building topped with a Spanish-style roof.

Flanking the walkway to the register are rows of boxes on the floor, filled with un-shelved "2 for $1" vinyls, the shop’s recession special.
