We're two fifths of the way through our "BEST OF THE GUIDE" STORES SURVEY. We're looking at all the stores that touch on the home, from hardware to thrift, in order to find new sources, rate the old and see who people like the best. This week we'll be looking at the following categories: Tableware & Glassware Garden Supply Thrift Stores Mid C Modern Furniture Modern Contemporary Furniture So far, the submissions have been numerous and compelling and the voting somewhat uneven. We're going to see what we can do to rectify this, but we know this is a lot of posts and voting that you are dealing with. To see all the covered categories, see the stores and vote if you haven't yet, go to BEST OF THE GUIDE 2005.
