West End, Glasgow
Concierge.com's insider take:
There's an eclectic mix of independent little shops on Byres Road and Great Western Road that cater to both boho types as well as the West End's sophisticates. Felix and Oscar is the perfect stop-off for funky gifts, kitsch stationery, cards, and home wares. Highlights include Cath Kidston products and local designer jewelry, such as Mojo's colorful crystal and bead creations (495 Great Western Rd.; www.felixandoscar.co.uk).
