Even though I work only about four blocks from the Limelight Marketplace, I’ve always been kind of afraid to go inside. The building has a fascinating history, and has been an Episcopal church and a nightclub before it was converted to the shops in 2009. The entrance is intimidating, but once you enter it is totally welcoming and a fascinating place to explore and discover new things.
Another thing that was surprising about Limelight was that everything was affordable! Shirts were in the $20-$30 range, and there were lots of smaller ticket items that would be great for gifts.
On the gf food front, there is Baci Gelato on the first floor. I ended up picking up a bag of Covered Bridge sweet potato chips with cinnamon and brown sugar from Jezalin’s to nosh on while I shopped. They were really fried, very crunchy, and pretty good.
Next time I definitely want to go to Butter Super Soft to check out just how soft their hoodies really are.
Moral of the story is – don’t judge a book by its cover 🙂
