Palm Beach Shopping
Shopping Florida’s upscale enclave.
Spend a weekend among the storied and monied Palm Beach, set on the Atlantic coast. The winter has long been considered the city’s social season (for the likes of the Kennedys and Rockefellers), but shop the slick boutiques along Worth Avenue—pausing only to gawk at the oceanfront mansions and dine at top-notch restaurants—any time of year. Like many Florida cities, it’s most easily explored by car.

3 Dolce Antiques
If you're into doodads like ridiculous sconces adorned with ostrich feathers, than Dolce - the most wacked-out emporium on the strip - is your kind of place.
4 Tomas Maier
The Bottega Veneta designer is given to stocking an eclectic range of items, including high-end Santa Maria Novella shaving cream imported from Italy, Neil Young albums, art books on Slim Aarons and 1920's architecture, fine teas, men's and women's clothing, and arty Marni necklaces made from strips of black braided PVC.
Tip: Maier's own line of black and taupe surf trunks are understated and cut just generously enough to flatter any man.
