Philadelphia Shopping Guide
Here is my highly subjective shopping guide to Philadelphia, based on a small-to-medium amount of research, limited time on the ground, and my own strong personal tastes and inclinations.
Above: Shakespeare and Company bookstore and cafe. An utter delight.
Omoi Zakka Shop: one of the best curated arty-things-and-office-supplies-and-gift-items shops I've ever been in, in any city, period.
Yowie: spare, minimalist yet colorful, and super chic -- clearly assembled by someone with a great eye for art and objects.
Brickbat Books: used bookstore with an emphasis on art and culture -- the creaky-floored, tin-ceiling-ed, jam-packed stuff bookstore dreams are made of.
