Nukuhiva

southern canal ring stores

Since it lacks a central attraction, this area is often ignored by the tourist guides. But look closer and you'll discover a jackpot of fabulous sources for retro dishware, covetable gifts, and clothing by rising designers.

Angel Basics Too and Too by Angel Basics

Sisters Marisa and Mariëlla Angel opened this pair of shops because they wanted to offer the area's many artists and creative types access to anything-but-run-of-the-mill clothing. Angel Basics, the original store, is largely stocked with pieces priced south of 100 euros, while Too is home to splurgier familiar-label items, like Antik Batik tunics and Anonymous camisoles.

Jan

Despite its space constraints—or perhaps as a serendipitous result of them—this cheerful garden-facing object shop takes great pains to present an enormous range of impeccably edited items, from leather bags by owner Janna Hallink to blissfully scented Catherine Memmi candles.
