Best cities for shopping in the U.S.?
According to Conde Nast Traveler’s list, West Palm Beach’s Antique Row and Design Center clocks in at No. 4. The travel mag said there are “easy-to-find places for both budget and splurge,” and agree there is “something for everyone.”
With Palm Beach coming in above Los Angeles and Las Vegas, one has to wonder: “What is it about the area shoppers can’t get enough of?”
With 40 charming antique shops, boasting everything from 17th to 20th century treasures, fine and decorative art, vintage furniture and home décor and more, there’s a lot to love. Old schoolhouse chairs, Lucite candlesticks, cuff bracelets, Italian chandeliers -- there are as many treasures as there are places to find them.
The area is pedestrian friendly and award-winning restaurants linger just around the corners should you have a foodie in your crew.
Landing in Conde Nast Traveler isn’t a first for this shopping stop. Antique Row and Design Center has also graced the pages of The New York Times, Architectural Digest and House Beautiful and proudly takes the moniker “antique design center” of Florida. No wonder interior designers refer to this area as their sweet spot, for more than 30 years, too.
If you can’t make it to the area anytime soon, but still have an itch to see what goodies abound, check out http://www.onantiquerow.com for a selection online. But plan a trip to go antiquing if you get the chance. It is, after all, a top-notch spot.
