The main shopping district of Traverse City is located on Front Street, a charming beachside stretch of shops that includes art galleries, eclectic boutiques, and local artisan-made products, all within walking distance of Traverse City Film Festival 2013 venues. Between films, get lost browsing the shelves of Brilliant Books, neighbor to the City Opera House, or Horizon Books, located next to the State Theatre. For local establishments that serve products made with Traverse City’s famous cherries, stop into Cherry Republic, American Spoon Foods, and Cherry Stop, and don’t miss the tasting room at Fustini’s Oils and Vinegars for fresh-flavored oils. Becky Thatcher Designs and Miner’s North Jewelers sparkle with one-of-a-kind jewelry creations, and for the latest in women’s fashion, try Haystacks, Cali’s, or Ella’s boutiques. For the home, check out Green Island, Nest, or Wilson’s Antiques, a landmark of downtown Traverse City. Also don’t miss the Grand Traverse Commons, a collection of intriguing shops and galleries located inside the historic Grand Traverse Commons, west of the downtown.
