On a quiet little side street off Florida Ave in downtown Hemet is a one block stretch that is home to a selection of fun stores. I love finding these little intersting retail pockets when visiting a new location. Shopping at big box stores has never been of any interest to me, but take me to an area that has quaint stores and I’ll happy browse and wander around for hours.
If you enjoy boutique shopping as well then you’ll want to head to Harvard Street when you visit Hemet. Here’s what you’ll find:
La Boutique Consignments: Stocked with retro items and clothing there are unique gifts to be found for you or for the ones you love. I browsed in here for quite a while and kept discovering new items. 146 N. Harvard St, Hemet, CA 92543
Victorian Bridal Museum: Housed in the same location as La Boutique Consignments the Victorian Bridal Museum gives you a glance into how wedding dresses have evolved and changed.
