We had expected a laid back old town feel to the shops but it was mainly high end art. Very expensive not for the tourist probably more for the rich locals. The shop keepers were very friendly tho and encouraged us to look around.

During the season there is an art walk when all of the galleries are open. Some even offer wine to lubricate your wallet.

Thursday is the art walk, but i believe there are "special events" that might have other than regular hours til 5pm. Usually Thursday is it after 5pm

There is an art walk along Main on Thursday nights (not so in the hotter summer months). Most of the galleries are open there, in addition to restaurants and bars.
