New Haven is a shopping desintation like no other. Where else can you find a locally owned small business offering one-of-a-kind items around the corner from national and international stores with limited locations. New Haven is home to one of the oldest oriental rug purveyors in the country. A local hattery sells the most Stetsons in the world, with Hollywood as a frequent buyer. We have fashion designers, local grocers, handmade jewelry, best selling cook book authors, and cupcakes (approved by former President Clinton!). New Haven is walkable and a "one stop shop" for everything you need.
