10 Stores to Visit in 2012

New year, new shopping strategy—that's how we do things at Lucky. And fortunately, there's a crop of cool new shops popping up across the country to help us get to what we're good at. While we're obviously the first to praise the convenience of e-commerce, there's just something about the instant gratification and visual appeal of a beautiful brick-and-mortar store that keeps us coming back for more.

To that end, we've rounded up the top 10 buzzed-about stores you've just got to check out this calendar year. From the Southern outpost of a modernist décor shop to a multi-story luxury boutique on NYC's Upper East Side, you're gonna want to hit 'em all.

Jonathan Adler - Atlanta

"Happy Chic" designer (and Simon Doonan's better half) Jonathan Adler opened his first-ever Atlanta store this past year. His 14th freestanding location to date, the shop brings Adler's trademark groovy furnishings (modernist pottery and retro-minded lighting fixtures) to the Deep South.
