LIke Brookstone, this is a gadget-lover's store. The items sold at the Sharper Image tend to be "sleeker", and more shiny. They tend to run to black paint, silver coatings and glass...all the elements you'll find in a stereotypical well-off bachelor apartment. Along with the sleek and the shine...usually also come the requirement of spending more green...cash! Unless you're really going for the "Image"...head somewhere else.
