A LITTLE RETAIL THERAPY
Shopping in Carmel is just a delight. Most shops are “one of a kind’. If you simply must have something from TALBOTS or TOMMY BAHAMA look in the outdoor mall at the top of Ocean Ave.
There is the usual selection of “tourist” shops along Ocean to provide you with the T-shirt emblazoned with CARMEL-BY-THE SEA.
But for the most part you will find boutique shopping.
Take your time and window shop along 5th Ave, Ocean Ave. and 6th Ave. It is there you will find most of the shops.
or for your “inner cowboy”
Be sure to check out the Cottage of Sweets
And Estate Jewelry
My favorite house wares shop is Whittakers on Ocean.
The owner is the artist and designer of most items in the store.
And don’t miss all the hidden Courtyards and Passageways. Carmel has 42 of these.
I will try to show you more inside these wonderful shops. However, shop owners sometimes welcome and sometimes forbid photography.
