Philadelphia is a city that truly nurtures its homegrown talent. What that means for shoppers is that despite not being considered among the world's most fashion-forward cities, Philly is a locale where you can find one-of-a-kind treasures designed and finished right in the back of the store. What's more, this ethos applies to all genres of shopping. Beyond discovering your favorite new fashion designer, you can meet master furniture craftsmen, jewelry makers, and true artisans all of shapes and sizes, and from all types of crafts. And you can pick a neighborhood based on what you love to shop for and look at: Old City, for instance, is great for art galleries and cutting-edge and vintage boutiques; Walnut Row in Rittenhouse Square is where you'll find the fashions the fashionistas can't live without, and Antique Row is a paradise for antique collectors and shelter mavens. Plus, as an added bonus, here in Pennsylvania, you pay no sales tax on clothing. So when the retail bug hits you, take a trip out of town a bit and hit up a sprawling complex like King of Prussia Mall for a huge spread of offerings. If a smaller venue closer to the city is what you're looking for, a place such as The Little Apple may be what suits you. Either way, this city is sure to have a shop or two for everyone!
