One of my favorite local stores is Art of the Table on Wealthy by Heritage Hill. They have a walk-in beer cooler leftover from about the 40s which is really cool, plus a great wine selection. I couldn't find an exterior shot, although they have a gallery of the interior. (Won't let me hotlink though).

Does anyone know the history of this building? (the three/four story brick structure flanked by white storefronts.) I have seen pictures of it in other threads and found it very interesting.

I believe it used to be a hotel/brothel type place along the old trolley line from downtown out to Reeds Lake. People used to stop in for a little fun on the way to amusement park. I'm hoping maybe Triple G (GRGridGirl) will stop by with some more history. I'll see what else I can dig up. ;)

I have old pictures of the trolly line greatgrandpa and grandma took on the ride to reeds lake. That was the place to be in GR, I remember the stories passed down generation after generation about what it was like, cool as hell.

There's nothing like walking into a nice warm little shoppy (that's what my wife calls them) after being out in the cold. And usually they have hot coffee or hot cocoa waiting for you. :D Usually much friendlier than Pottery Barn too.

Well, I'm going for the wine, sangria, champagne, and hot toddy's.... That will keep you warm!

BTW, East Hills will have carriage rides down Cherry/Diamond and East Fulton will have the GR Trolley down Fulton.

"Dashing through the snow

In a one horse open sleigh

O'er the hills we go

Laughing all the way

Bells on bob tails ring

Making spirits bright

What fun it is to ride and sing

A sleighing song tonight"

Oh.........
