It’s a Girl Thing—voted the area's best consignment store by readers of the San Jose Mercury News three years running— stocks an ever-evolving supply of ladies' accessories and all things haute couture. Filled with designer logos, from Chanel, Gucci, and Prada to Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin, the store's goods include handbags, shoes, and jewelry. Along with contemporary brand-name gear for women, It's A Girl Thing features numerous vintage items and a style-savvy inventory for gents including belts, ties, and watches for men who don’t need to show off their strength by wearing a wrist sundial.

During the boutique's business hours customers can preview items for consignment. If accepted, they remain on It's A Girl Thing's racks and shelves for 120 days; if sold, the store splits its final selling price 50/50. The boutique’s proceeds frequently benefit charities such as local schools and The Humane Society.

A steaming, froth-capped cup of cappuccino—it’s not the first thing you’d expect to be handed at a clothier. Consider it a gesture of Peter Cassara’s hospitality and a hallmark of the Italian heritage that defines his shop.

The inveterate tailor learned to make suits in Sicily in the '60s before packing up his skills and sewing kit to move to San Jose in 1971. Every two years, he travels back to Italy to hunt down the latest styles by Baroni, Enzo, and Petrocelli. He favors lightweight fabrics such as cashmere, silk, and pima cotton, and he always has an eye out for upcoming trends such as slim-fitting suits.

When customers come into his shop, he sometimes guides them through the collection himself. “I do everything myself because when a person comes in, I look at how they’re built. I know exactly what they need. If there are too many employees, they don’t get it right,” he said. In his spare time, Cassara serves as a fashion consultant and prides himself on the ability to summarize in less than a minute the proper way to curate a wardrobe. It keeps him pin-sharp as he performs all the alterations, from simple hems to leatherwork. He sweeps floors, he dresses window, and sometime he even froths the cappuccino.

Each year, the creative team behind Dead Time Dreams Attractions fills its disturbing setting with elaborate plots suitable for the silver screen. Far from sitting passively, audiences step into the scene beset by a cast of horrifying creatures. Before entering one of the immersive attractions, The Meat Factory or The Church, guests pass through the preshow Midway of Terror attraction. In the Meat Factory, terrornauts stumble through a maze of wending dead-ends festooned with meat hooks and body parts, behind which hungry creatures lurk. In the Church, visitors tour an apocalyptic wasteland populated by undead carnivores and toys that have a little bit of battery life in them.
