Beneath the dusty veneer of this secondhand superstore lurks an incomprehensibly large quantity of antique decor and costume jewelry. From Las Vegas' Arts District neighborhood store listing.
This upscale suburb has a wealth of hip retailers, most of which are gathered in breezy, palm-fringed complexes. From Las Vegas' Arts District neighborhood store listing.
Heather Burge first came to Savannah for a sorority formal, and the lack of shopping options—not the dance—is what left a lasting impression. A few years later, she returned to open this airy boutique, known for its hip, trend-triggering lines. From Savannah's Broughton Street neighborhood store listing.
This is the kind of place you walk into and immediately feel at ease. The racks have a happily cramped look; the '50s-style lounge area has a low-key feel; and a wild assortment of bags is scattered throughout. From Savannah's Broughton Street 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.
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.
Though smaller than the Mercado de Artesanías (see above), this market is easier to get to from the major strip hotels. Bonus: It's open late to accommodate night-owl shoppers. For their pure kitsch factor, we fell in love with the giant burlap yarn paintings of various Mexican tableaus, $30 (see above,).
Two floors of boutiques, most of them dedicated to summery apparel, make up this compact mall. Our picks: Il Mare, which sells XOXO swimwear; and Ciao, a purveyor of D&G and Moschino. 125 Ave. Costera Miguel Aleman in the Golden Zone, 52-744-485-69-39
Hawaii suffers from a glut of swimwear shops, but this Paia spot stands out from the rest. Its bamboo-and-straw-decorated interior makes you feel like you're shopping in a retro tiki hut; the humongous selection of bikinis and tanks is actually nontacky, a rarity in the islands.
