Whether you’re looking for unique holiday gift or a different place to take your out-of-town guests, here is a list of Scottsdale and nearby neighborhood boutique shopping spots that ensure a special shopping experience.
If you want a true Arizona gift or souvenir, shopping here is a priority. The bronze windbells crafted here are one of a kind, as is the setting. Soleri, the Italian-born architect, ended up in Arizona to attend Frank Lloyd Wright’s School of Architecture at Taliesin West in Scottsdale. He is probably the state’s best-known architect after Wright. The windbell sales support the Cosanti Foundation’s work.
6433 E. Doubletree Ranch Road, Paradise Valley. 800-752-3187, cosanti.com.
A few years ago the Antique Trove antiques mall was revamped with new handpicked vendors and a focus on customer service. You will find a little of everything vintage from its 140 vendors.
2020 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale. 480-947-6074, antiquetrove.com/scottsdale.
Shopping malls are convenient but often filled with big-name chains that lack local flair and personality, the Union is the perfect blend of both worlds. This collective space in Biltmore Fashion Park houses local eateries, a coffee shop and a bunch of mini boutiques. You can buy great gifts and home goods at For the People, eat handcrafted pizza at Forge or gourmet hot dogs at Short Leash. You’ll find everything from high-end cosmetics to boutique clothing for the whole family.
24th Street and Camelback Road, Phoenix. 602-955-8400, shopbiltmore.com/union.
La Grande Orange
Technically a gourmet grocery, pizzeria and bakery, but it is as close to an urban general store as you can get. Find a wide selection of wines and an impressive selection of gifts ideas for adults and children.
4410 N. 40th St., Phoenix. 602-840-7777, lagrandeorangegrocery.com.
