Continuing on to the college town of Northampton, visitors will find Thornes Marketplace (www.thornesmarketplace.com) in the heart of the bustling downtown area. This five-story building is filled with specialty shops and gives the feeling of a contemporary bazaar with its offerings of everything from handmade artisanal chocolates, Tibetan handicrafts and stationery items to European footwear, jewelry, and classically modern apparel for men and women.
