THE CRANBURY BOOKWORM
54
N. Main St., Cranbury, 609.655.1063, cranburybookworm.com
More than 100,000 used books (no, they don’t carry new tomes) are
shelved in nine rooms of a Victorian house, about as far from a book chain
as you can get. Here you’ll find 50-cent paperbacks as well as rare books,
art, vintage clothing, CDs and DVDs. “We have an eclectic mix of books
and people,” says manager Andrew Feldman, who started working there
as a teen. It’s a haven for those who still prefer to turn an actual page.

EDEN ORGANIX
215
Raritan Ave., Highland Park, 888.907.3336, edenorganix.com
While earning a degree in chemical engineering, Valerie Mason-
Robinson researched cosmetics and found that many contained
toxins that are absorbed into the skin. That discovery made her
skin crawl and prompted her to open this store, which sells
organic and natural ingredients–based beauty products. We also
love that she partners with nonprofits and actively gives back to
the community.

SALLY MILLER
30
N. Main St., Milltown, 732.729.4840, sallymiller.biz
Sally Miller is often referred to as the “Queen of Tween” because
of the trendy yet tasteful clothes she designs for preteen girls.
Her creations have been sold at Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor
and Saks Fifth Avenue, but her home base is
a quaint Main Street shop. Kids love the look,
and moms appreciate the quality and age-
appropriate styles. Even Sasha Obama
rocked one of her dresses!
