The Old City is stacked with run-of-the-mill souvenir shops, but the district also prides itself on being a hub for art and design. Cruise the interior-design shops, independent boutiques and contemporary art galleries clustered along 3rd and 2nd Sts between Market and Arch in particular. On the first Friday of the month many stay open late and galleries tend to have special events and openings. Retail is scarce in Society Hill, but you will find some shops close to the South St boundary.
