Shop PHX

The name Vintage Solutions says it all: This collection of cool stuff from the past really does offer solutions to such quandaries as, "What to get the kitsch collector who has everything?" or "Where can I find a dead-mint dining set from the '60s?" Two new booths devoted to vintage clothing are attracting a fashionista crowd, we hear. 3604 N. 16th St., 602-604-1831

Housed in a former Studebaker showroom, Circles Discs and Tapes has been pushing tunes for more than 35 years. Its gorgeous red-brick structure houses thousands of pop and soul CDs, as well as a separate store offering the valley's largest selection of classical music. Vinyl fans will be delighted with Circles' wide variety of record albums, too. 800 N. Central Ave., 602-254-4765

Rust and Roses is fast becoming a favorite with the shabby-chic crowd, thanks to its vast selection of everything from silver punch bowls to carnival chalk. Lovingly distressed indoor and outdoor furniture and a surprising selection of antique lighting fixtures are among this shop's delights. 4200 N. 7th Ave., 602-264-4999

First on Saturday mornings and now midweek, the Downtown Phoenix Public Market has become the spot to be spotted — buying organic veggies, sampling homemade jelly, and taking in the vibe, which often includes live music. Rain or shine year-round, Saturdays 8 to 1 and Wednesdays 4 to 8. 721 N. Central Avenue, www.foodconnect.org

Phoenix is getting baked! Roosevelt Row really arrived when Tammie Coe opened her urban outpost. She's got a way with fondant (check out the trippy striped cakes) and her bread-baking husband, Michael, has a thing for yeast. A loaf of bread, a cup of coffee, and thou — and, perhaps, throw in one of their oversize, decadent cookies. Farther south, another husband-and-wife team, fronted by chef Danielle Librera, also get it baked. Stop by the Sweet Pea for a brownie chunk or a PB&J cookie; or take home a tart. Tammie Coe: 610 E. Roosevelt Street, 602-253-0829, www.tammiecoecakes.com • Sweet Pea: 209 W. Jackson Street, 602-296-4042, www.sweetpeaaz.com

Looking for a Kozik Mongerforce smoking hand grenade? How about a seven-inch Drinky Crow statuette, some freaky-but-fun French Dunnys, or even a complete set of Kidrobot's Gorillaz action figures? Slide on into Synthetic Compound, where bomb-ass vinyl toys and other hipster designer playthings are in stock at this boutique in The Firehouse. 1015 N. 1st St., www.myspace.com/syntheticcompound
