Here you’ll find handcrafted products made by local artisans, including owner Molly Gaddy-Walters. There are also repurposed and “upcycled” clothing, home furnishings and other eco-conscious products, such as a trophy-top wine stopper for $30 or album-cover notebooks at $12 a piece. Town Square, 269-4620; ArtifactLV.com.
Beatnik Clothing Boutique
The latest addition to the booming boutique scene is in Downtown’s budding Art Square, where owner Shannon Taylor offers a fun and fashionable blend of new and vintage clothing, accessories and art, plus some reclaimed items, such as vintage men’s band shirts. 1025 S. First St., Suite 155, 592-0111; Facebook.com/BeatnikClothingBoutique.
This storefront, between the Griffin and Beauty Bar, has only the “checks cashed” marquee of its predecessor for signage. But what’s inside is already drawing a crowd Downtown: chic clothes, far-out accessories and a staff of fashion risk-takers, such as store owner and stylist Sarah Nisperos. Coterie never carries more than three sizes of each item, which means you won’t catch anyone else in your Scotch & Soda vest. 515 Fremont St., 350-2939.
Pronounced “new,” its streetwear brand is a leader in the swag industry, which comes naturally to owners DJ Crooked and DJ Neva—both New York transplants. And it’s the place to purchase the latest in snapbacks. 3999 Spring Mountain Rd., 252-5212; Knyew.com.
R+D Hipster Emporium
Don’t let the name fool you: This lifestyle store in Summerlin is as welcoming and accessible as it is trendy and fashionable. R+D offers ready-to-wear and statement pieces for millennials, such as Jeffrey Campbell shoes. 740 S. Rampart Blvd., 750-0550; RnDHipster.com.
