Founded by two Midwestern redheads with a reputation for being the nicest ladies on the block, you’ll find a great selection of jewelry and accessories by local designers for men and women at Ginger Root (don’t leave without trying on one of the famous lady ties, made from repurposed vintage fabrics and sewn by hand). This place’s main focus, though, is its excellent by-appointment-only tailoring service. Bring your beloved but ill-fitting items here for some much needed TLC, and they’ll be given a new lease of life under the owners’ skilful hands.
