Dreams, Fun and Bargains in South Sac “ShopSmart” is a must C

Steve Jobs sold the first Apple’s out of his parents Garage.     Somewhere in the world a new Sam Walton or a James Cash Penney is starting out.,laying  the foundation for a new retail empire.

Located in the old Sam’s Club off Stockton Boulevard  is a field of dreams. A building where future entrepreneurs  who cant afford a traditional  shop a full shop can rent space in this bazaar where you have a mix of established companies and first time business owners.

 Inside you can buy new furniture, get a Tattoo, a hair weave, and unique car parts

Art work

This is one of two favorite finds in the Store, Kitchen Plus has hundreds of Kitchen equipment.  This vendor has pots that will hold 2 eggs to restaurant sized pots and pans.   Another Store at the front sells Sears Kenmore products.   I walked away with a canister vacuum marked down from $160 to $40.

 Who knows Enrique may be the next thing?

This was clearly the nicest shop in the building with unique women’s clothing from size 2 to full figure.

 Fresh food grown locally

Jewelery Bargain

Custom T-Shirts while you wait

 Many one of kind items

This is a very popular area in the store. Which can be rented for children parties.   Pc repair, cell phone stores, beauty stores and more.  Shopsmart is a one of a kind store. There isn’t anything like it in the area.

ShopSmart is a Sacramento must see

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
