At Red & Black College Bookstore, shoppers can feed their university pride with a wide assortment of Texas Tech T-shirts, sweatshirts, ball caps, bumper stickers and tailgate paraphernalia, such as a Big Texas Spatula ($19.95) good for game day grilling or fending off swarms of low-flying bats. Other holiday gift ideas are available, many adorned with depictions of the Red Raider himself, engaged in his traditional behaviors of uprooting stop signs and hoarding Swedish Fish. In addition to school-centric wares, Red & Black has a large selection of Under Armour items, which can be used to wick moisture while engaging in sports or taking a stressful chemistry exam.
Seasoned musician Chad Russell and the troupe of instructors at Don?t Fret Guitar Studio approach guitar lessons with an easy hand, letting students follow their own musical path in styles such as classic rock, heavy metal, jazz, funk, and blues. In their guitar-strewn practice room, instructors host laid-back lessons for beginners and intermediate players and in-depth sessions in music theory for advanced students, earning enthusiastic reviews from clients both young and old. Stark, Stanton, and their instructors have a special affinity for particularly difficult music, relishing the challenges of blistering metal solos and hard-rock jams as indomitable as a speeding locomotive loaded with kryptonite.

Led by a mother-daughter duo, Scrappin’ Hearts aids customers in preserving memories with scrapbooking courses, social scrapbooking sessions, and an extensive stock of tools, albums, and embellishments. Students learn the basics of cherished-moment preservation during a two-hour scrapbook 101 course, where they will use their own pictures and clippings to design a two-page tribute to families, friends, or favorite types of hamburgers. Social scrappers can participate in a cropping session that can last up to six hours, during which they immerse themselves in scrapbook projects in the company of 12 other attendees, sharing scissors and discussing the latest sellotape trends. Participants also receive $20 worth of supplies to arm themselves with tools such as a Glue Glider adhesive runner ($14.99) or a fruit pink Copic sketch marker ($6). Recollection caretakers can craft projects on the store’s selection of albums, such as the heavy duty chipboard album ($10.89) with the words “Engaged” carved across the cover, ideal for fondly recalling a post-proposal, pre-wedding era or a time when you were very busy.
