Searching for the perfect Derby hat, unique artwork for your home, a great bourbon for entertaining, or a handcrafted piece to remind you of your trip to Kentucky? From malls to mom-and-pop boutiques, shopping opportunities abound in the Bluegrass State.

Major shopping malls can be found in Louisville, Lexington, Northern Kentucky, Paducah, Bowling Green and Elizabethtown. Bargain hunters love The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in Simpsonville (just off I-64), home to more than 80 stores including Gucci, Banana Republic and Brooks Brothers. 

Hazel, often referred to as Kentucky’s Antique Capital, has been recognized as one of the 10 Best Antiquing Towns in the U.S. by Fodor’s. For something uniquely Kentucky, Donna Salyers’ Fabulous Furs is a must-stop. This shop sells faux fur coats and accessories in more than 4,000 stores worldwide, but only in Covington can you visit the headquarters. And for something truly one-of-a-kind, don’t miss the many folk art shops and galleries in towns like Berea and Paducah, where you can find finely crafted treasures made with heart and soul.
