Elsbeth Rose

Elsbeth Rose is a boutique in historic Armory Square.

The boutique is open from 11 am – 6 pm Monday through Thursday, and 11 am – 7 pm Friday and Saturday. It’s closed on Sunday. Armory Square itself is an exceptional place for shopping and dining, and Elsbeth Rose adds a wonderful touch.

There are also selections of styles from several small U.S. and European designers. Not just clothing, Elsbeth Rose offers vintage home goods, local hand-made jewelry, scarves, wraps, belts and shoes. The atmosphere at Elsbeth Rose is warm and welcoming, with a small and cozy layout. Elsbeth Rose specializes in current classics and attention to detail, and is geared more to women in their 30’s and 40’s. If you visit its website Elsbeth Rose also has a blog offering fashion hints for the upcoming season.

Sound Garden

This shop is located in downtown Syracuse, just off Armory Square. It houses a massive media collection, including CDs, DVDs, records, videogames, a small selection of well-chosen books, shirts, and other merchandise, and novelty toys. Most items can be found in either new or used condition, and their used prices are especially cheap. They have many rare and old titles that any music junkie will love, as well as current hits and up-and-coming acts. The selection of videogames is somewhat limited, as compared to a gaming store, but there are a good number of titles and many are used. The store also takes trade-ins for cash or store credit. For toys, there is a large selection of Kidrobot merchandise, and also vintage tee-shirts. Live performers come in from time to time. This location is Syracuse’s largest music store and almost always busy. This is the first and only place in town with a wide vinyl record selection, and every year they host Syracuse’s part of Record Store Day.
