The attention to detail at this French flea market-themed shop is extraordinary: One corner holds a mad-scientist desk strewn with ledgers and old vitrines; in another, a table is set for a Victorian tea party, complete with pretty sweets. From Savannah's Broughton Street neighborhood store listing.
At this exquisite gift shop, it's easy to get inspired by the creatively arranged offerings: One aquatic-themed area is filled with chunks of brain coral, sconces made from shells, and hefty coffee table books about life by the sea. From Savannah's Downtown Design District neighborhood store listing.
The most expansive indoor mall in Cancun amply rewards shoppers who traverse its floors. There's Envy, which carries designer labels like D&G and Polo; Sybele, an upscale retailer purveying clothing and offbeat items; and Majolica, a tiny shop that sells reproduction portraits of Frida Kahlo.
This airy and highly strollable mall has its fair share of boutiques worth visiting, including mod home-decor shop Bassik (we love the giant bowls made from Mexican tzalam wood) and Tequila House, a trinket shop that offers strikingly accurate clay figurines made in your likeness—with a short turnaround time ($35 and up).
A trio of squawking parrots greets shoppers at the main entrance to this mall. We're especially fond of Wayan Natural Wear, a local chain that carries imports from Indonesia, lots of Mexican crafts (other locations are throughout Cancun), and a number of sterling-silver jewelry stores. 11.5 Blvd. Kukulcan, 52-998-883-29-45
The open-air layout and many outdoor cafes make a visit worthwhile, not to mention the sheer volume and variety of shops—from Zingara, a swimwear boutique filled with an eponymous line of bright mix-and-match separates (from $20 per piece) to Zara, a trendy Spain-based fashion boutique chain.
