Palm Springs Shops

Establishment neighborhood
The Shops at 1345
1345 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Old Las Palmas
We would trek from LA to Palm Springs for a visit to 1345 alone. Aside from everything you can buy there, the building—a modernist structure designed by E. Stewart Williams in 1955—is worth a visit all on its own. Step inside and you’ll find a treasure trove of rare mid-century-inspired home items. Our favorites include wares from Double M pottery: The pastel-patterned, lead-free glazes are all handmade in California, and the mugs, plates, and bowls are all dishwasher-safe.
Raymond Lawrence (Closed)
71800 Hwy 111, Rancho Mirage
In a town where vintage is king, Raymond Lawrence (the moniker is a splicing of the owners’ names) is a breath of fresh air. Though still pretty heavy on kitsch and brightness—technicolor lucite is everywhere—the tiny shop-in-shops are a joy to peruse and a dream if you’re on a hunt for small giftables (silly-yet-functional kitchen accessories, home decor, apothecary items). Don’t leave before exploring the stationery section—it's packed with hilariously raunchy cards and pretty notebooks.
Desert Hills Premium Outlets
48400 Seminole Dr., Cabazon
Technically, the outlets are about 30 minutes outside city limits, but anyone who’s been will agree that the drive to or from Palm Springs isn't complete without a stop here. So massive is this shopping complex that it’s actually resembles a small town, with designer stores lining the recently revamped “streets” (though we think they’d benefit from the addition of a few more restaurants). Here, you’ll find off-price outposts for Barneys New York, Frette, Bottega Veneta, Prada, YSL, James Perse and so many more.
