Kanibal Home is a labor of love that is continually changing. A store in a developing area that tends to be something to everyone: clothing boutique, home furnishings shop, gift destination as well as a place for locals to congregate and appreciate the arts through the shop’s monthly events.

Paranormal Books

Kathy has created in her store an oasis from mundane worries and everyday stress we all suffer in these trying times. The paranormal in general offers us an escape from those daily woes by offering the mystery of the unknown (or not known yet) and no place does it justice like Paranormal Books.

Kites Restaurant and Lounge, the place to be

I have been a patron of Kites for many years and over the years have found it better and better. It is located within the Minerals Resort. Food is consistently good, service can’t be beat, management is sincere and caring in taking care of their guests. Bartenders are best I’ve seen anywhere. Crowd is a mixture of young and older and weekends rock with the best DJ. Summers are always a social event at the outdoor Tiki Bar. I’d love to welcome everyone to visit my little bit of paradise here in the mountains of Vernon, NJ.

Coffeehouse

The Treehouse In Audubon NJ (120 Merchant Street) is a fantastic family friendly coffeehouse. The children can read, do crafts, color, play with an abundance of materials and toys available for them. The decor is warm and inviting and a great place to simply chill without worrying about the children. The bathrooms are stocked with diapers and essentials with little ones. Really cool pictures and writings all over and the owners are fun :) You would have to meet them to understand or check out their website (treehousecoffee.net)

Robyn Ross, South Orange, NJ

If you have not seen Robyn Ross, a fine jewelry and contemporary clothing boutique, you should! It is the only store that has both denim and diamonds under one roof! Really, I speak the truth. I have both women and men constantly tell me how helpful I am, how they love my store and all there is in it on a daily basis. Seeing is believing and I tell you, believe. Sometimes your dreams do come true! See Robyn Ross today. 67 South Orange Avenue, South Orange, NJ 07079 www.robynrossdesigns.com

Favorite place of all

If you haven’t been to Brain Freeze in Matawan yet...GO! They’ve got THE BEST homemade ice cream, nicest staff, ginormous portions, and an awesome flavor variety. The ice cream is homemade and the staff is generous with tasting samples....and no, I am not an owner, staffer, or relative of an owner. I’m just a neighborhood ice cream gourmand!

Best Furniture Store - Berkshire Furniture

Berkshire Furniture, located in Union, is stuck between stores on Rt 22, but to miss it is to miss out. Family owned and operated, the Bernsteins take care of their customers, regardless of the amount you spend or the number of times you return. If they don’t have it in the showroom, Larry, Judy or Eric, will find what you want in one of their numerous furniture cataloges. Their prices are more than fair and the care they take is so much better than dealing with an hourly sales person at a retail chain who won’t even be there next year. These folks are in it for the long haul and have developed quite the loyal following.

Robyn Ross is a boutique with sophisticated casual wear. Its the kind of store where you can go in and say "I need a new pair of jeans" and Robyn selects exactly what is flattering and hip.

Mom and Pop shops

In this crazy world of fast pace society with so many choices, it is a breath of fresh air to walk into a store where the owner is right there in front of you and is truly interested in helping you. Mom and Pop shops seem to be going by the wayside. In their place are much bigger stores with buying power that can make it hard for the little stores to compete. These small stores appear to be a dying breed, but stores like Kidagories and
Beauty Basics strive to stay alive with something that the bigger store just can’t deliver on. Personal customer service, that is sincere and from the heart. Not something that they are being paid to say or do. It is a true sincere caring that set these stores apart from their larger competitors. For that I do believe that these stors should be contenders for the 2010 Best of NJ Poll!

Always current with trends for Mom and daughter alike, "The House" in Millburn is my favorite shop. Even more shocking is that it has always delivered current, creative solutions to hair, make-up, jewelry and fashion at a competitive price point, which is critical in today’s economy.

Vote for the Best of...

CBL gift boutique in West Orange, NJ has my vote as undoubtedly the best gift and boutique store in NJ. I have had the pleasure of being welcomed by the staff and owners for many years. As a fine artist myself, I am able to envision the scope of, and appreciate the uniqueness of their select gifts and fine arts. The store and storefront windows are filled with exceptional gift ware, hand blown coloured glass vases, and useable fine arts, drawing their customers inside to see an equally impressive array of artisans’ selections, each one exuding graceful class. Whether ones’ tastes run from traditional through to contemporary or modern, Jewishly religious, or not, the presence of high class and intellectually stimulating pieces make shopping in CBL an amazing experience.

HOT SAND STUDIOS

I HAVE NEVER MET A MORE PROFESSIONAL AND NICE BUNCH OF PEOPLE THAN ALL OF THOSE THAT WORK AT HOT SAND. I BROUGHT SIX YOUNG LADIES TO HOT SAND, AND THEY ACCOMMODATED OUR SCHEDULES TO NO END. THE GIRLS HAD A BLAST AND MADE QUALITY ITEMS. THEY WERE VERY PROUD OF THEIR WORK. THE LESSONS WERE SAFE, FUN AND THE GIRLS DEFINITELY WANT TO GO BACK. THE PRICES WERE EXTREMELY REASONABLE FOR HAND MADE GLASS ART AND THE PIECES WERE SUBSTANTIAL. I WEAR MY DAUGHTER’S PIN EVERY DAY - THE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS HUNG ON THE TREE AND THEIR GLASS BALLS ARE SITTING ON THEIR DESKS, PROUDLY DISPLAYED. A GREAT PLACE FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES.

Best Destination for Kids

Hot Sand is the best place to take kids of all ages. I brought 6 girls to make jewelry and blow balls. They had a blast. The classes were safe, educational and productive. The girls made significant pieces, they are all very proud of what they made. I highly recommend Hot Sand. The staff is courteous, professional and a delight to deal with. They went out of their way to make sure the girls were safe, had a good time and learned the right way to make glass art. We will definitely keep coming back.
