Although I feel like the voice of a ghost from the 19th century announcing the arrival of general stores, Local Goods has established itself as the eastside answer to Seven Planet, selling mostly local sundries from soap to toilet paper to jewelry to toothbrushes. If you've yet to peruse the 21st Century's version of the old-timey theme, come check this phenomenon out—they're having an art opening this First Friday for Amaren Carosi and Sarah Cruse from 5:30-8:30 pm. (The modern general store is surprisingly swanky.) Just leave your pistols at the saloon.


Did you know that Wells Fargo has a blog? It's called "Guided By History." Anyhow I ripped this photo off of it since I've been paying them overdraft fees since I was 16, which I figure makes us square.
