Although much of 2020 has been challenging, we refuse to overlook the good in our local Wynwood Community.  Behind every colorfully curated building, are teams of incredible people who keep this slice of our city vibrantly alive for all to enjoy.  

We don’t take for granted the many sacrifices all have had to endure either.  Unfortunately, we’ve seen some of our beloved small business neighbors leave us these past few months.  Yet, we have also welcomed some new, exciting dining and shopping concepts with open arms.  

One thing is for sure.  When we support and celebrate small, local businesses, they get to stay put and provide jobs and provisions for our neighborhoods.  This holiday season, we truly hope you choose to shop and spend within the communities you love.  Here are a handful of our top picks for seasonal (and anytime) shopping in Wynwood.

BASE is a dedicated men's boutique featuring emergent and established brands that marry street culture with utility and fashion.  With over 30 years in Miami beginning on Lincoln Road in 1989, this hip men’s fashion haven is the perfect spot to shop for clothing, footwear, accessories, cologne, and more this year.

MVM is one of our favorite locally owned, women’s clothing stores in the area carrying all the classics with a Wynwood Edge.  If the ladies on your shopping list are into chic, stylish, and designer clothing and accessories, swing by.

Nomad Tribe has been a neighborhood staple for socially conscious, fair-trade, and upcycled clothing and accessories for men and women for years.  We love their Green Nomad Project which gives you 20% off your order when you recycle your older clothing with them.  Gift shopping while preserving the planet sounds good to us!

Basico stands out as one of Wynwood’s best kept secrets for stylish, yet laid back menswear.  Locally owned and operated by Francesco Cianci, this colorful and thoughtfully curated shop has something to offer every man from Miami to Madrid. From board shorts, to dress shirts and head turning streetwear, stop by Basico.

Wynwood Shop is truly a one stop shop for all things Wynwood. Think clothing, accessories, trinkets, and must buys for the unique art lover who plans to visit our beloved neighborhood when the pandemic slows down.  Give your friends and family a little piece of Wynwood with a gift from this store.

Pitusa has been turning heads in Wynwood and beyond since 2010. After it’s female founders decided to create clothing that empowered women, while offering a lighthearted aesthetic that transitions from beach to street, we’ve all come to love the highly recognizable Pitusa look.  Shop this boutique for the fashion forward, ethically conscious, travel loving lady on your list.

Aviator Nation hails from Venice, CA, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome this casually cool spot to our Wynwood neighborhood.  #Sweatslife is not going anywhere in our opinion, and these colorful lifestyle sets for men, women, and kids will carry your favorite giftees from the beach, to the slopes or let’s be real, hanging out with their favorite home quaranteam.

Frangipani is locally owned and operated, and has been serving Wynwood’s ever changing landscape for over 8 years and couldn’t be more appreciative to be a part of it all.  We’ve recently stocked up on new clothing, candles, ornaments, accessories, and self care products galore.  Come shop with us this holiday season for thoughtfully curated, globally conscious gifts for women, men, children and housewares this holiday season.

We hope you’ll join us at Frangipani and at many of our favorite local small businesses around Wynwood during Shop Small Weekend, November 27th-29th.
