Vacation shopping doesn’t always have to be about souvenirs and sandwiches; some of your best experiences can take place in one of those eclectic indie shops where you can scavenge for treasures from the past. Flea markets in Paris, swap meets in Houston, and India Street Antiques in San Diego—these are the places that often end up being the highlight of your entire trip!
Ahead of the Times
You may not expect an antique store to be considered a trend setter, but India Street Antiques is not your normal antique store. Opened in 1991, their store was the first retail store of its kind in the North Little Italy neighborhood, but in the 28 years they have been in business, the area has morphed into one of the best-known art and design districts in all of California. India Street Antiques had a vision, and when you’re traveling to San Diego for that once in a lifetime vacation, you have to take some time out of your day and browse their aisles; everything you purchase can be shipped and delivered to your home or office, so you don’t have to worry about fitting that perfect mid-century modern credenza you’ve been searching for into your carry on!
