First time visitors are often surprised by the many retail offerings found on Lopez, Orcas or San Juan Islands. Artist co-op studios, galleries, bookshops, boutiques with chic clothing and stores with sensible outdoors fashion are just the beginning. Find the perfect gift of art or handmade jewelry, pick up a swimsuit or pair of shorts for the beach, or find a new dress for a night on the town. Retail therapy is alive and in the San Juans. What’s on your list?
