Talking Leaves offers Story Time every first and third Sunday of the month
Talking Leaves Books
If you’re in search of something perfect for that bookworm in your life, check out this independent bookstore located at 951 Elmwood Avenue. The eclectic selection and knowledgeable staff will help you in your quest. There’s something so enchanting about a bookstore on a cold winter’s day – that new book smell, the peace and quiet, and the maze of colorful spines. There are two real dangers at Talking Leaves: one is not wanting to leave, and the other is leaving with a few things for yourself!
When all else fails, come to the Walden Galleria mall, where you’ll find a whopping 200 retail stores. You could spend an entire day shopping here for your loved ones, especially since there are 12 full-service restaurants, a food court, and several other food stands in case you get hungry! One thing’s for sure, you won’t leave this place empty-handed, and you’re just as likely to finish off your gift list!
Walden Galleria has something for everyone
What a time to live in and visit Buffalo Niagara! There are so many wonderful stores to patronize this holiday season. We hope our list gives you a place to start. Have fun, safe travels and Happy Holidays to you and your family!
