(Updated May 2017)
Jackson, Wyoming is a small western vacation town. Tourists flock here in the winter to ski, but in the summer it’s still a pretty happening place. Shopping and wandering through stores is a fun way to spend an afternoon when you need a little break from all of the great outdoor activities.
The town has done a great job of keeping most big box stores out, and it really fosters an independent, local retail scene. While the town is filled with plenty of souvenir/tourist oriented stores, there are also plenty of great shops to find fashion, home décor, and unique gifts.
I’ve put together a short list of the best places to shop in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. These are my top recommendations.
Best Places to Shop in Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Altitude // 48 E Broadway
Altitude is a shop featuring women’s clothing, accessories, gifts, home decor, and more. The store carries contemporary designer brands, like Paul & Joe, Free People, Wildfox Couture, J Brand and more. It is one of the cutest shops I’ve found in Jackson thus far. I love all of the gifts and decor items–little notebooks, wall hangings, and plants. Altitude is definitely my top pick for fashion and clothing splurges.
Made // Gaslight Alley, 125 N Cache
Made is an independent store selling local and handmade items. It opened in 2010 and is a place for artisans to sell their wares. It’s a great place to buy unique gifts for friends and family—beautiful cards, hand-stitched pillows, candles, glassware, wallets & clutches made from colorful woven textiles, and handmade jewelry all have a home here. The store is located in Gaslight Alley near Town Square, and a smaller outpost is located inside Hotel Terra in Teton Village.
Vom Fass // 60 E Broadway
Vom Fass sells spices, oils & vinegar, and spirits. They offer up unique spice blends and vinegar sure to improve your next meal. If you like spirits, they’ve got Chai-flavored vodka, Sour cherry liqueur, and other interesting flavors. As if all that isn’t enough to entice you, they also allow you to sample anything—ANYTHING. Sample an olive oil, sample the pineapple curry spices, or sample some bourbon. Literally everything is up for a sampling (just ask an associate).
Terra // 105 E Broadway
Terra and Terra Tots is one store front with trendy fashions for both women and children. As you walk up the stairs just inside the door, you quickly feel as if you’ve been transported to a private showroom. Hardwood floors and a comfy seating area make you wonder if you’re inside somebody’s expensive and well-curated closet. High-end designer pieces fill the store. They also have a small section of luxurious beauty products.
Yippy I-O Candy // 84 E Broadway
If you like candy, head to Yippy I-O to get your fix. The shop has a bunch of old western barrels filled with all kinds of candy—taffy, Jelly Bellys, and other traditional types of candies. Grab a basket when you go in and fill it up for $4.25 per half-pound. They also have delicious fudge in multiple flavors.
Paper & Grace // 55 N Glenwood
Paper & Grace is a charming stationary and party goods store. As the name hints, the store sells all kinds of paper goods, from cards and invitations to notebooks and calendars. If you like planners and agendas, you’ll find the most beautiful options here. Party goods include adorable serving sets and neatly wrapped packages of streamers. They also sell posters, bath and body products, and other giftable items.
Habits // 35 W Deloney Ave
Habits is a beautifully-curated little shop selling women’s clothing, jewelry, and accessories. They stock contemporary designer brands, focusing on pieces with a laid-back luxury feel. Jumpsuits, easy dresses, intricate textiles, and bold jewelry are just some of the things you’ll find in this store.
Lucky You // 10 E Broadway
Lucky You is a gift shop located inside of Lee’s Tees. Functioning as a separate store, Lucky You sells adorable gifts and things not plastered with the words “Jackson Hole” all over them. This is a fun place to find interesting souvenirs that someone could actually use or wear on a regular basis.
Vintage Jackson Hole // 65 Mercill Ave
If you’re looking for vintage clothing, head to Vintage Jackson Hole. There are plenty of secondhand stores around town, but this is the best place to find true vintage, especially if you want a pair of cowboy boots to blend in while you visit the rodeo or do some other traditionally western activity (there are a lot of them) in Jackson.
Valley Bookstore // Gaslight Alley, 125 N Cache Street
Valley Bookstore is the best (and one of the only) bookstores in Jackson. The store is small but they have a great selection of books on nature, outdoors, national parks, etc. They also carry local authors, western stories, and they have a good selection of magazines.
