Scottsdale has several shopping malls, each with its own unique vibe and variety of stores. One of the most popular shopping destinations in the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. Fashion Square features more than 200 stores, including luxury brands like Coach, Jimmy Choo, and Tiffany & Co., as well as upscale department stores like Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. Old Town Scottsdale is a mix of Southwestern architecture filled with galleries and studios that showcase Native American artifacts and modern art alike. From there you can stroll over to Kierland Commons for an upscale outdoor mall experience with a variety of restaurants to pick from for dining or just to people-watch. The Scottsdale Quarter is another outdoor mall offering high-end shops such as True Religion Brand Jeans and Kate Spade New York, in addition to restaurants such as Kona Grill, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, and Ocean Prime.

Collector Car Auctions

Scottsdale is home to the Barrett Jackson Collector Car Auction and you can go shopping while in Scottsdale Arizona at one of the many car auctions that they have throughout the year. This is a huge event that draws thousands of visitors to the city each year. The auctions are held at the Westworld of Scottsdale and there are many hotels nearby that will cater to your needs if you come for this or any other event. Due to Scottsdale’s position as an “auto destination” there are a number of car shows, parades, and events throughout the yea. 

The Barrett Jackson auction is also broadcasted nationally on both Speed Channel and Velocity Channel so even if you aren’t able to make it out for this great experience you can still enjoy all the action from home!

Antique Shops

Antique shops are located all over Scottsdale and can be found in shopping malls and independently owned stores in old buildings. Some antique shops specialize in furniture, toys, jewelry, or other collectibles. One of the best places to shop for antiques in Old Town Scottsdale, where many of the city’s original businesses are still housed in historic buildings. This 160-year-old shopping district has more than 80 antique dealers, offering everything from vintage kitchenware to rare Native American art. The shops along Marshall Way, 1st Street, and Main Street offer an eclectic mix of items ranging from Victorian furnishings to rare coins and collectible spoons.
