Dora Rae

Appointed with antique tables, dripping chandeliers, and armoires, this high-glamour accessories boutique is the ideal place to splurge on a designer bag. Owner Rachel Sandalon's extensive roster includes Lelya python clutches, Italian lambskin carryalls by Zefanya, and the buttery-soft designs of Hayden Harnett.

Fantastic Finds

This little-known boutique stocks new and pre-owned clothing and shoes, plus designer samples from Manolo Blahnik, Juicy Couture, Catherine Malandrino, and more. Two serious annual clearance sales (in January and July) feature markdowns of 50 to 80 percent, but you never have to wait for the $5 Goodbye Rack.
