Many towns around Lake Tahoe have their distinct shopping districts. On the South Shore, there are gift shops and larger name stores like Patagonia, North Face and Quicksilver. In Truckee on the North Shore, there are dozens of boutiques and art studios that feature handmade items that reflect a mountain style.
If you are strolling around old downtown Truckee, head to High Camp Home for rustic but stylish items for the home, the Artisan's Market Place for locally made jewelry, art and sculpture and if you like to cook, you will go crazy at the two-story Cooking Gallery that is chock full of items for the amateur or professional chef.
If you head to Tahoe City or South Lake Tahoe, check out the THC-inspired clothing at the Tahoe Hemp Company or pick up a (Heart) Tahoe sticker or some local artwork at the darling Trunk Show.
