Hot Shopping This Spring & Summer in the Alamo City

San Antonio is the best place to shop because you can find just about anything and everything, but at significantly lower prices that what you'll find in other metropolitan cities, such as New York, L.A. and even Dallas or Houston. But you want something special, right? 

If that's the case, make sure to hit up The Brick at Blue Star on Sundays from 12-5. It's a great way to find one-of-a-kind items you won't find anywhere else, from art to jewelry, handmade soaps, candles and more. The vendors are different each week, so you never know what kind of exciting things you'll find. They often have good eats on hand as well, including artisan-made chili (whiskey beef chili, double red vegan chili), from exceptional chili and mac designers, JD's Chili Parlor, a premier event and private catering company. 

The Pearl Brewery is still one of the leading destinations when it comes to restaurants, shops, and just an all-around good time. These upscale shops offer an exhilarating array of goods, from imported knick-knacks to designer clothes and even a bouquet of fresh flowers to brighten your room. Make sure to go during the weekend to find more local treats at the farmers market, such as artisan foods by Texas Black Gold Garlic, Deep River Specialty Foods, Holdman Honey and Madge's Food Company! 

You're going to need a really big bag!
