Best New Shopping District 

Coventry Village's Garment District

It's really a district within a district, but it seems like Cleveland Heights' Coventry Village has finally found a solution for its under-trafficked north end: It's attracting a critical mass of trendy, youthful clothing boutiques, joining decades-old hippie emporium Sunshine Too, with its peasant skirts, leather jackets, and Indian jewelry. It all started when American Apparel moved into a big space vacated by an appliance store several years ago. Others quickly followed, including the new Blush boutique, featuring handcrafted jewelry and clothing by artist-designers; Brigade, with its upscale casual men's and women's wear (including Cleveland-based label Wrath Arcane); and Heart and Sole, which specializes in unusual sneakers. Even street fixture Attenson's Coventry Antiques has a cache of vintage clothing and jewelry. And in a few months, Pittsburgh-based Avalon Exchange, which fills the gap between a designer vintage store and Plato's Closet, will be moving into the former Utrecht Art Supplies/Irv's Deli space at the top of the block, providing a sort of gateway.
