Many girls fantasize about a wardrobe like Carrie Bradshaw’s – or just a life where they can afford her designer duds. And while we can’t all buy Manolo’s without working hard for it, we can at least come close to a fancy closet thanks to Coconut Grove’s The Little Big Store.
The colorful racks inside the store are lined with top designer pieces which include DVF and Mandalay dresses, Jill Stuart, Ella Moss tops and skirts, Da-Nang pants, and Seven jeans next to vintage finds. Everything in the store is marked from 50 to 75% off, allowing Miami gals to have a one-of-a-kind outfit minus the hefty price tag.
Open for almost 20 years, The Little Big Store’s claim to fame is their handcrafted jewelry from all over the world. The entire right side of the quaint boutique is adorned with rare stones, silver, amber, lapis, and tiger's eye imported from Indonesia, Thailand, Israel and India among others. Owner Avi’s hands make his own signature pieces for sale also, furthering the mission of his shop: originality. Carrie Bradshaw would be so proud.
