Fodor's Expert Review Uptown Design District
A loose-knit collection of consignment and secondhand shops, galleries, and lively restaurants extends north of Palm Springs's downtown. The theme here is decidedly retro. Many businesses sell mid-century modern furniture and decorator items, and others carry clothing and estate jewelry. One spot definitely worth a peek is The Shag Store, the gallery of fine art painter Josh Agle. For antique costume jewelry check out Dazzles. If you dig the mid-mod aesthetic, breeze through the furnishings at Towne Palm Springs.
