Shopping Blitz: Salt Lake City

Destinations

We continue our holiday shopping series about stores near Kimpton hotels in Salt Lake City, known as the Crossroads of the West. Dare we say the shops rival the slopes?

The Hotel:
Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City

The Neighborhood:
Downtown

There’s an indie boutique boom in the heart of town. These four gems are proof.

Sam Weller’s Bookstore, around since 1929, amasses an impressive collection of used and rare books (see if you can dig up an early edition of Wuthering Heights). If comic books are your thing, Night Flight takes off with a deep selection of Green Hornet and Wonder Woman graphic novels.

Utah is big on local craftsmanship. The proof: Homemade fudge and sticky pecan brittle from the Western Nut Company, authentic tastes of The Beehive State. For something with more staying power, grab decorative ceramic, glass, and wood vessels from Utah Artist Hands.

You’ll be glad to return home with a little extra baggage.
