Best Neighborhood for Shopping (2012)

Selby and Snelling

Merriam Park's Selby and Snelling intersection has really stepped up its game in the past few years. Once little more than a quiet spot to grab coffee and browse vintage clothing, it's quickly becoming a full-fledged shopping district that just might give nearby Grand Avenue a run for its money. Aside from a Starbucks sitting on the corner, nearly every business in the area is independent and locally owned. Secondhand mainstays Lula Vintage and Go Vintage are joined by Up Six and Everyday People Clothing Exchange, as well as the more upscale BlackBlue, which outfitted Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for his 2012 Grammy appearance, and Brow Chic, a sophisticated shop tucked away in a courtyard. Even the lingerie boutique Flirt has taken notice of the intersection, recently moving to Snelling from its digs on Grand Avenue. Add a Patina gift shop and we think it's safe to say that Selby and Snelling has officially made it.
