Now that you’ve settled on one of Westbrook’s Arizona vacation rentals, you’re probably ready to plan a Scottsdale shopping trip. But you’re not the basic mall shopper – a unique shopping experience is more your style. Well, you’ve come to the right place for that, because Scottsdale has tons of awesome, independent boutiques. Here are a few of our favorites:Scottsdale Shopping

  • High Point Shoes. A Scottsdale shopping highlight for any sneakerhead, this streetwear boutique carries an insane variety of limited-edition sneakers. But they don’t just do shoes. High Point Shoes is also stocked with the latest gear from clothing labels like Black Scale, BBC, Huf and Benny Gold.
  • The Record Room. This music store is unassuming on the outside, but on the inside it’s any vinyl collector’s dream come true. The Record Room specializes in hard-to-find stuff like punk, surf and rockabilly records, and it has a decent selection of band tees as well. If music is your thing, The Record Room is your spot.
  • Pendleton. Pendleton’s iconic Native American-print woolen textiles are super on-trend, super Southwest, and super well-made. While they aren’t cheap, they’ll last forever and they’ll keep you cozy too. These printed textiles can be hard to find, but this Scottsdale store always carries them. Visiting is a must for any fashion-conscious vacationer!
  • Lindsay Lou. Lindsay Lou Boutique epitomizes the modern-day “Southwestern sweetheart” look. The boutique sells girly pieces (like sheer blouses and delicate dresses) right alongside trendy brands like Wildfox Couture and distinctly Southwestern boho stuff like fringed jackets, turquoise jewelry and cowboy boots. It’s a great Scottsdale shopping destination for any eclectic fashionista.

Scottsdale has been called the “Beverly Hills of the Southwest,” and while there’s definitely some truth to that, we think it’s actually much cooler. Sure, it’s got your typical chains and all the haute spots you could possibly imagine. But it’s also got plenty of options for those who set the trends instead of just following them. Don’t take our word for it, though. After you settle in at one of our awesome Arizona vacation rentals, check out all that Scottsdale shopping has to offer.
