Aspen is famous for its shopping, with enough designer boutiques to rival Madison Avenue. Uptown girls will find themselves right at home among the racks at Gucci, Christian Dior, Prada, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren and a whole slew of other international brands on Galena Street. Aspen’s best-kept secret, though, is its consignment shops — where people dump designer clothes after one or two seasons — and they can be purchased for a fraction of their original price. Try Suzy’s Consignment at East Hopkins and Spring Street. The best place of all to dig for haute treasures is the Aspen Thrift Store, on East Hopkins and Galena. Trust us, even luxury shoppers can’t resist the knock-your-socks-off savings to be found while perusing the vintage boutiques. If you’re in the market for a new pair of jeans, however, don’t miss Boogie’s Retail for wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling designer denim.
Aspen is a small town, so it’s easy to walk around and experience the best shopping in town. Try the Cooper and Hyman pedestrian malls for tree-lined walkways and quaint patio dining.
