Browsers can sip tea and meander through this new age bookstore that carries an array of mind, body and spirit books and accessories, from acupuncture to Zen and affirmations to yoga.
Books, candles, incense, gifts, statues...you name it and they have it! Looking for that "alternative book"--they probably have it! Gifts, jewelry and a tea room! They also offer classes.

The Himalayan Bazaar - a little bit of the Himalayas in Ann Arbor. We are a fair trade, retail store, featuring a wide variety of gifts from Nepal, Tibet & India, including singing bowls, jewelry, Buddhist and Hindu statues and artifacts, monastery wall hangings, yoga accessories, prayer malas, wool hats, scarfs, bags, wool shawls, Pashmina shawls, Tapestry, women clothing, Man clothing, incenses, prayer flags and more. We also organize and lead tours trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.
My wife and I were traveling through on our anniversary and stopped at this shop. The sales clerk was very friendly and the shop is well maintained and organized. It can be a little pricy but my understanding is that everything is imported from the Himalayas so that’s understandable. There’s a lot of really cool stuff here though and the woman we spoke with was very informative about what everything is. Highly recommend stopping here if you’re in the area!

40 of us arrived in Kerrytown around 10:30 in the morning. We planned to spend about 3.5 hours there and there was so much to do. We began in the Farmers Market where the fresh fruits and veggies we very enticing. I got some sweet corn that was the best I had all year, so good! After that we went to Zingermans, a foodies heaven. There was so much to look at and sample. We found some precious items to take home with us. After that we went to a shop across the street from them (sorry I forgot the name) but found some stocking stuffers there that will be much loved. Then we went into the Kerrytown Mall. Wowie Zowie. Hollanders was amazing, I wanted to move in, the cards, the papers, the art supplies were wonderful. There was a wonderful wine shop and grocery store. By the time we were done shopping we were ready to eat!! There were shops to please everyone but the lunch which got the most oohh and aahhh was the corned beef sandwich from Zingermans! One of the things I most appreciated is that there was lots of seating available, being a bit disabled I appreciated the picnic tables in the Farmers Market area. There was seating also in the Kerrytown mall and also in the dessert section of Zingermans. I can shop for much longer if I have breaks to sit and rest.
