Top 10 shops for made-in-the-West goods
Whether you're seeking the perfect gift item or just want to treat yourself, hit these shops that overflow with oh-so-Western flair
Wild Flowers, Denver
This gem of a shop is stocked with plants and fun accessories like Buddha kitsch statues, luxe hand cream, and inspirational lantern displays.
Natural High Lifestyle, Santa Monica
This boutique proves that your clothes can be as organic as your produce. They use natural fibers like organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo for their chic but California-casual clothing and accessories line.
Trina Turk boutiques, Palm Springs
The boutique in an Albert Frey building swings with a mixture of Trina Turk clothing designs and vintage home-decor items like patio furniture, outdoor pillows, and ceramics.
Hobie Surf Shop, San Clemente
Big-time surf brand Hobie gets eco at its downtown store, where everything is Earth-friendly—from organic cotton shirts and sweatshirts to board shorts made from recycled water bottles.
At Digs, a pocket-size home-and-garden shop in the Alberta Arts District that instantly lifts your spirits, you’ll find everything you need to turn your backyard into the favorite room of the house.
Mixture, San Diego
A sunny loft space offering large-scale contemporary furniture—such as a curved sectional with a chaise that looks like a cushioned slide, or a Moooi lamp, its shade atop a lifesize black horse.
City Beer Store, San Francisco
Owners Craig and Beth Wathen are usually working the bar at their encyclopedic store. They can point you toward bottles of Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout, one of the nation’s first and best bourbon-barrel beers.
Santa Fe by Design, Sdanta Fe
New Mexico designers hold their own on this showroom’s A-list of international kitchen-and-bath fittings names. We’re fans of a local blacksmith’s hand-forged iron door hardware and curvy vessel sinks by Stone Forest.
Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, Seattle
The always-buzzing Pike Place Market shop and cheese-making kitchen churn out a flagship cheddar, chipotle-spiked fresh curds, and oven-ready 10-ounce containers of “World’s Best” Mac & Cheese.
Old Faithful Shop, Vancouver
Most of what's in the artfully curated Old Faithful Shop—custom teardrop terrariums, reclaimed-wood cutting boards, rosewood cheese knives—is handmade, so you can feel good about surrounding yourself with beautiful things.
