TOP 5 STOPS

THE PARIS MAR­KET AND BRO­CANTE

With its jade columns and cor­nices, this swank for­mer gro­cery store is filled with ev­ery­thing from clev­erly cu­rated kids’ toys to an­tique dishes, dap­per bar­ware, and vin­tage light­ing.

WRIGHT SQUARE VIN­TAGE AND RETRO MALL

This mid-cen­tury em­po­rium (just a block be­hind Broughton) is packed with fab­u­lous col­lectibles, from throw­back LPs and groovy cock­tail glasses to or­ange slag vases and by­gone chap­ter book se­ries.

ONE FISH TWO FISH

An an­chor of the de­sign district, this shop is a go-to for gifts. Find col­or­ful table­top pieces and beauty good­ies like be­spoke hair­brushes and sleep masks.

MAMIE RUTH

This for­ward-think­ing cloth­ing bou­tique dou­bles as the own­ers’ de­sign stu­dio, turn­ing out women’s ap­parel like striped tu­nics and party dresses. Check out their line of baby clothes, which arose out of a de­sire to elim­i­nate waste and find a use for fab­ric rem­nants.

THE BOOK LADY BOOK­STORE

Though you will stum­ble upon some new ti­tles, this iconic shop spe­cial­izes in clas­sic tomes. Find Stein­beck and Shake­speare, old copies of Doc­tor Zhivago, and thick vol­umes of Poe that are filled with notes and high­lighted pas­sages.

SWEET DIGS

THE MAR­SHALL HOUSE

Named for the savvy 19th-cen­tury busi­ness­woman who de­vel­oped it, the 68-room ho­tel in­cludes 7 rooms that step out onto the iron bal­cony over­look­ing Broughton Street. Check out the famed “pineap­ple tree” in the lobby, the ho­tel’s trade­mark hol­i­day wel­come. Rates from $129.
