Hidden Gems: The Boutique Shops of Anaheim, CA


Anaheim, California has long been touted as a shopper’s paradise, with an impressive array of options for ranging from amusement park stores at Disney to luxury South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island shopping. Boutiques throughout the area are not only numerous, but are also amongst many of the more highly sought-after types of destinations in the entire area.

While there are certainly some areas and local destinations that are more widely known than others, it’s important that you not discount the tiny, hard-to-find shops – it is these that carry the essence of Anaheim within their walls, offering the best deals and the most unique items available for purchase.

One of the most popular and easily accessible places to find boutiques in Anaheim is the Center Street Promenade in downtown. This area boasts a location between Harbor and Anaheim Boulevards with easy access from the 5. Not only are there plenty of outdoor cafes, eateries, the Farmers Market, art shows and street fairs, but it is here that you’ll also find those boutique shops that offer a distinct experience you won’t find anywhere else. The Center Street Promenade offers a historical turn-of-the-century commerce center that is now home to several boutique shops.

Another excellent option for boutique shops in Anaheim is one that lets you leave the malls for those who prefer the staples, the norms, and the beaten path; try out Old Towne Orange and see everything available there, from curated shops to one-of-a-kind unique treasures. You’ll enjoy the modern conveniences blended in with artisan-inspired, vintage finds of all kinds.

For those who are on the lookout for true vintage treasures and antique finds, downtown Fullerton will most likely be the host of many boutique shops that may be right up your alley. The acclaimed vintage furniture and clothing retailers in Fullerton offer premium finds that are unique and just about as “boutique” as you can get!

For even more great boutique shops and stores in the area of Anaheim, head to The Camp in Costa Mesa for earth-friendly finds and comfy fashions, as well as The Lab Anti-Mall, where you will be able to shop to your hipster heart’s content.

These areas, along with Garden Grove, offer an immense variety of options for boutique shop lovers. Some of the popular boutique shops and stores in Anaheim and the surrounding area include the likes of ThreadSence, Closet21, Blackcraft Cult, Plum Pretty Sugar, Lalas Boutique, and Goldie’s.
