1204_Shops_3_HED

Even with all the ease of online shopping, there’s still nothing like walking into a shop and leafing through a rack filled with cottons, wools and the like.

The real-life experience—it’s the one thing brick-and-mortar shops have over e-commerce. And nowadays they’ve also got rare scotch, pool tables and full-on commercial kitchens giving them even more edge over the unsatisfying feeling of typing out a credit card number and then waiting for the deliver guy. So we scoured the country to bring you:
