Hmmm. After reading the "Raleigh/Durham finds" posts, I thought there should be a seperate thread for Cary.
Though I don't know very much about where to get crafty things there. --I live in Raleigh. I do know they have some of the best Indian food around, and Madstone. Madstone was the only theatre around to play Miyazaki's Spirited Away which was a great film and not shown in Raleigh at all.
Oh--and they have the best Border's Books.
