    shopping info ?

    Hi again everyone its me Rane, I have another question for you fine folks in southern Maryland ... actually more than one ... hope you don't mind ... btw .. thanks for all the advice so far ... I really appreciate it . I am looking forward to everything except the packing and unpacking ... I would love it if someone could tell me about the mall (s) closest to the Pax River navy base , is there a JCPenney there ? also, are there many used bookstores in the area ? I am an avid reader ;-) , and how bout flea markets ? and where is the best place to try those world famous Maryland crab cakes I keep hearing about ? Thanks .

    Cariblue, don't like crabcakes? Now that's just plain un American! ;) Tony's Riverhouse in Benedict has good crabcakes, but mine are better!

    Doesn't St. Lenonard have a big flea market anymore? And isn't there still a used bookstore on Great Mills? (Can't remember the name, and NO I don't mean *that* one).

    Sorry Rane - if you *really* want the mall experience or get into the shopping thing - you really do have to head out of Southern Maryland. Waldorf would be one choice, or Bowie up by Rte 50 or the Annapolis Mall.

    As far as crab cakes are concerned - they're found everywhere, but Stoney's - either one - makes a pretty good one.

    But not as good as MINE - not even Christy's.

    The shopping is PrettyPissPoor to say the least. Im a guy and not really into shopping but if you cant find it at Walmart or Target generally your SOL. Heck I would be happy with an AdvancedAuto or an AutoZone but we dont have either of those either.

    Bookstores, the only decent one is in Waldorf its a Borders.

    There is a large flea market in the Mechanicsville area right on route 5, not much there of value to me thought it was pretty scummy actually. There is also one in Hughesville too never went to it but there is usually a suit of armor sitting outside on Saturdays that I have been meaning to stop and look at.

    This is a strange place anywhere there is a place to pull off on the road someone throws their garbage out and puts a for sale sign on it. You can also buy seafood out of someone trunk parked along side the road, Im sure that is sanitary.

    Two pieces of advice for moving to Southern Maryland

    1) Don't do it
    2) if you do discover Online Shopping

    Rane,

    If you're looking for a flea market you'll need to go to Charlotte Hall. The farmers market there has a large field with too many vendors to count. There is also a smaller one in the Hughesville Tobacco Barns.

    As for Crab Cakes...Sandgates Restaurant on the Patuxent River off of Sandgates Road has good Crab Cakes. But then I haven't had Christy's or Franks versions!

    :)

    Heretic,
    I don't know your location but there is an Auto Zone in Prince Frederick.

    Shopping in St. Mary's is sketchy but less than an hour away is a pretty decent mall and several great strips in Waldorf.

    And the best crab cakes are either at Stoney's or at my house, thankyouverymuch, since I got my recipe from them. Maybe we should have a cook-off?

    Hi Rane,

    I'll tell you..... if you're looking for a good crabcake... try either Scheible's Restaurant in Ridge, Evans Seafood over on 249, Stonies, or even Sandgates. All good in my opion... and I love eating crabcakes.

    As for bookstores.... the best one is Borders in Waldorf... but if you don't want to go that far there is Bowes Books in Lex. Park... but you could go to the bookstore at St. Mary's College... they've got good stuff there.

    Have fun! Enjoy the county!

    Autozone

    Its nice to see we will be getting an Autozone soon. PrinceFrederick is a bit far to drive for a $6 oil filter. Due to traffic it takes about 45 minutes to get to Prince Frederick from Lexington Park. I tried the TrakAuto in the KMart Plaza in California a couple times but they never seem to have what I need.

    Jetmonkey .... " ASS walmart " ?? ... did you forget the word kick as in meaning the Walmart there is a really good one ? I sure hope so ! Malls are great but sometimes you just gotta go to Walmart !
    Several of you have mentioned JCPenney ... where exactly is it , in a mall or in a location of its own ? Is it a big store ? Hecht ? I am not familiar with that chain ? What is it similar to ? <grin> my hubby is already wincing at the thought of new stores for me to check out .
