Tallahasseeans likes to shop, and it shows

Whether it is clothes, shoes or that perfect gift or piece for the home, Tallahassee has it.

You can find vintage at places such as Sick Boy Vintage (439-B W. Gaines St., 222-7425) and Avant-Garb (522 W. Gaines St., 514-4272).

If international items are your flair, try Bali Hi, now with two locations: Railroad Square (565 Industrial Drive, 766-7175) and Midtown (1123 Thomasville Road, 222-0029); or Suz-Annz Down Under (2810 Capital Circle N.E., 385-8033).

If boutiques are your style, we have plenty of those, too. Try Spriggs – Laid Back Luxe (6800 Thomasville Road, 894-2630) or Cole Couture (1240 Thomasville Road, 553-3327).

We also have several well-known speciality shops. Consider Shaw’s Athletics (1415 Timberlane Road, 893-5597), where Tallahasseeans have been buying running shoes, clothing and tennis gear for years.

And if shopping malls are your thing, you’re in luck. Between our two malls, you can find Macy’s, Dillards, Sears, Belk JCPenney and more.

Be sure to shop all around town, too. We have malls, shopping centers with a great mix of retail stores and restaurants, and the geographic destinations of Midtown, Betton, Market Street, the Shops at Lake Ella and Railroad Square, to name a few.

Drive along Apalachee Parkway, Tennessee Street and Thomasville Road to see even more opportunities to indulge that shopping urge.

The stores and destinations mentioned here are just to get you started — there are dozens of places to discover. If you need more information and ideas, go to Tallahassee.com and click on Shopping or pick up the latest edition of Home & Design magazine.
