Shop Around: From New York to Tokyo, here are six boutiques worth travelling for.
Artists & Fleas
"Originally set up as a small, unassuming market in Williamsburg, Artists & Fleas has grown into an enormous enterprise with more than 100 vendors across four locations including Chelsea and a couple in Los Angeles.
We like the original venue in 'the 'burg' for its avant-garde, eclectic and bargain-hunting atmosphere. Set just steps from the waterfront, there's plenty to love here, including an incredible selection of clothing, secondhand treasures, records and art – just about everything you could ever imagine buying.
Open Saturday and Sunday, the market has live musical performances and A-grade people-watching. It's an elbow-to-elbow shopping experience and hunting around for stuff you never knew you wanted is a fun way to spend an afternoon."
