Shopping is the most popular past-time in Windsor, and why wouldn’t it be? There are countless local shops, boutiques, and retail stores in the area. For some of the best shopping in all of Sonoma County, come to Windsor.
Old Downtown Windsor is the best place to explore if you are looking for unusual and original gifts or souvenirs. Downtown has a bunch of little shops selling products like fashion jewelry, clothing for the whole family, sporting goods, toys for the kids, and books, old and new. The most popular jewelry stores downtown are Images, Mark Shimizu Designs, Rodney Montoya Designs, and Something Special. Head to Greencycle Kids clothing store for upscale resale boutique items for babies and older children. Greencycle sells gently used kid’s clothing, encouraging recycling and money-saving thriftiness! For a shop like unlike any other, explore Ubeadquitous. The specialty bead store sells seed beads, Czech glass, fire polish, and semi-precious stones. There are also books to help educate on the various types of beads, as well as tools and various fibers if you are a jewelry maker.
Shiloh Center is the place to go if you are looking for less of a local shopping experience and more of a retail one. The center is home to stores like Wal Mart, Home Depot, and Office Depot, as well as numerous other restaurants and retail stores.
There are various other shopping centers, largely focusing on particular interests. For automotive needs, the Bonaventure Plaza in the place to be. For a larger variety of food choices (doughnuts to pizza to Mexican cuisine), head to Windsor Palms Plaza. Looking for beauty salons, jewelry shops, and grocery stores all in the same location? Try the Lakewood Shopping Center.
