Capitol Hill, particularly the PikePine corridor, is your best bet for hipster duds, vintage, and eclectic home decor. Fremont's assortment of shops includes both a bi-level vintage mart and one of the most expensive boutiques in the city. Ballard's lovely brick-building-lined shopping area has everything from pricey midcentury modern furniture to an apothecary. Other items to look for?
