Old Las Palmas
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.
664 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Old Las Palmas
The ideal Palm Springs wardrobe calls for airy caftans, loose, ’70s-style dresses, and wide-brimmed hats to ward off the unrelenting desert sun. The Frippery has all of the above in spades (that is to say, vintage clothes made for poolside lounging). Dig deep enough and you can find some real gems, like vintage Pierre Cardin and Pucci dresses.
