Join Laurel Pinson as she discovers unique shopping spots in the West Village.
There's lots to see on this bustling street in Greenwich Village, from a gem of an English tea shop to a shop with a focus on mystery books.
Tea & Sympathy
108 Greenwich Avenue
Right next stoor to this proper English tea shop in the heart of the village is Tea & Sympathy's shop, which stocks hard-to-find English candies and some incredible royal wedding souvenirs.
Partners and Crime
44 Greenwich Avenue
The focus at this downstairs shop is on mystery books -- everything from Sherlock Holmes classics to a special section devoted to Swedish mysteries.
112 Greenwich Avenue
Though the brand was named after its mission to reinvent a classic American staple -- the khaki pant -- the best wares in the store are actually the corduroys and super-soft plaid shirts.
9 Greenwich Avenue
Sometimes it can be hard to find affordable vintage in the West Village, but Zachary's Smile accomplishes the task handily, with a great selection of reasonably priced dresses and boots, as well as its own in-house label.
125 Greenwich Avenue
Named for a DC Comics character, this hard-to-pronounce shop stocks some of the cheeriest, most colorful housewares around. For another great housewares option, pop over to Jonathan Adler, just down the street at 37 Greenwich Avenue.
