Shop Around: From New York to Tokyo, here are six boutiques worth travelling for.

New York
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."

This NYC-bred bazaar happens every Saturday from 11am to 5pm, when over 100 of the coolest local vintage vendors, artists, and makers hawk throwback fashion, handmade decor, and more. Don't forget to commemorate your visit at the TinType Booth, which develops old-timey portraits using a cool antique camera (almost) instantly.

When it comes to how to spend your Saturdays, braving the lines at Target under unflattering florescent light likely ranks low on your list. So abandon your plans to stock up on dishwashing liquid and head to Artists & Fleas, a completely manageably sized craft fair.
