The annual "Best of Phoenix" issue of the Arizona Republic is out today. This is always a favorite. I quickly skip past all of the restaurant and entertainment choices and head straight to the shopping. Once again - Passage is the winner of the Best Place to Find Locally Designed Fashion.

Best Place to Find Locally Designed Fashion

4412 N. Central Ave., Phoenix
For the artistically minded shopper, Passage is your gem. Stocked with clothing and accessories handcrafted throughout Arizona, the desert-inspired urban boutique attracts those searching for something a bit different.
The recently remodeled shop carries an assortment of one-of-a-kind and limited-edition pieces - vintage brooches, deconstructed T-shirts, silver-beadwork bracelets, patchwork bags and hand-finished men's jeans - carefully selected by owners Sarah and Charles Walker. You'll feel thrilled knowing that most of the designs can't be found outside the Valley.
