I know that clothing stores have been discussed in the area, but I'm curious about thrift stores and any other interesting places that I should seek out. Gustav has stranded us here a little longer than recently expected and the in-laws' place can get monotinous during the day.

I appreciate the hardy accolades for Oxford. I had the chance to visit there once before but wanted something closer to Memphis since I didn't think I would be able to make it down to Oxford. But to my surprise my wife informed me that she wanted to travel there tomorrow. I hope to provide updates and maybe some pictures.

Oxford was fun but somewhat rushed. There weren't any sales except a very limited selection in Landry's. I had a nice conversation with who I assume was the owner of Landry's and a clothing representative. I encouraged him to look into grosgrain watch bands, I thought they would be popular with his clientel. It was also interesting to note that he sold Perlis crawfish polos. He said they sell well (a couple a dozen a week).

I didn't find the Hinton and Hinton warehouse sale. I didn't think about it until we had left and there wasn't a sign nor did any employee mention one.

National Menswear was an interesting stop. The highlight was 50 cent bottled cokes. They had a mixture of berle trousers and carhart garb.

Hinton and Hinton, like most shops on the square, is simply done well. It's a neat shop with a great atmosphere. The service was surprisingly friendly, I've been in there before when it was a little cold. They had some great products but you're correct it is a 180 from Landry's. Consider the prominence of stylish XMI shirts - they were a real turnoff.

While Distinctive may have a bias point of view, I have an outsider's perspective, and I agree Oxford can be snooty. It's a great town and really enjoy the dynamic of the small town feel combined with great shopping, but I don't understand the air of superiority. But I hail from South Carolina and we can have the same attitude about our state.
