    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.

    Save Khaki
    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.

    Zachary's Smille
    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.
