Posted: Updated:
PLANT THE FUTURE
Facebook/Plant The Future

Since there's no place like Miami, we're pretty fierce about what "Miami" is. From music to style to sand bars, we've got our own thing going and there's just no substitute. On Small Business Saturday, we suggest not only hitting up great boutiques and services, but those that capture our distinctly sun-and-bass-drenched culture. Check out seven of our local faves below:

  • Plant The Future
    Facebook
    We can't say enough about designer Paloma Teppa's green creations. From giant deer sculptures holding gorgeous plants to wall-installed stag ferns to terrariums gorgeously stuffed with succulents, everything at Plant The Future is stunning, clean, and green -- just like Miami, and just right for discerning design and nature lovers.

    2511 NW 2nd Avenue or 18129 Biscayne Blvd, plantthefuture.com
  • MIA
    Facebook
    It's got Miami in the name! Not everyone skates, but everyone loves great clothes and gear. Hit MIA skateshop for the latest kicks and apparel from the likes of Nike, Vans, and MIA itself. From beenies to hoodies to button-downs, there's something for every dude you know. And on Small Business Saturday, you can BOGO shoes and t-shirts for 50 percent off.

    229 9th Street in Miami Beach or 16850 Collins Ave #113C in Sunny Isles, miaskateshop.com
  • Del Toro Shoes
    The name is getting big recognition, but Miami's own Del Toro Shoes started with a few friends and a Wynwood office. From mens' velvet slippers to women's chukkas and accessories, check out their 305-powered, Italian-made goods at deltoroshoes.com. This weekend all sale items are marked down to $150, and there's 10 percent off all regularly priced merchandise.

  • Rebel
    Facebook
    What's more 305 than a distinctly rebellious sense of style? Get distinctly Miami Cool at Rebel, a carefully curated boutique on the Upper East Side that has a mini consignment store in addition to the newest looks from labels like Mara Hoffman, Parker, and more.

    6669 Biscayne Boulevard, Facebook/REBEL-MIAMI
  • UNKNWN
    Facebook
    Check out the latest modern clothing and lifestyle gear at LeBron James' Unknwn shop in the Aventura Mall. From rare shoes and gear to carefully curated fashion offerings, the store stocks only the coolest stuff from emerging and established designers -- and tons of limited edition 305-related goods, like leather Miami Heat snapbacks.

    19501 Biscayne Boulevard, unknwn.com
  • Sweat Records
    Give the gift of music -- and do it for less. Miami's favorite and totally homegrown record store is the perfect place to get cool tunes and support local business. Plus, Sweat's holding an early Black Friday Record Day sale at its digs in Little Haiti, with free vegan egg nog (spiked, if you want!) and homemade cookies for those in line at 8:30 a.m. On Small Business Saturday, the joint's open from noon to 10 p.m.

    5505 NE 2nd Avenue, sweatrecords.com
  • Perfect Gifts
    Facebook/PerfectGiftsSouthBeach
    From clocks to toys to jewelry to trinkets, Perfect Gifts bills itself as... the place for perfect gifts. From the guys behind the former Lincoln Road staple Pink Palm, this oasis on Washington Avenue is stocked with whimsical finds for friends and maybe even a gift to self -- or seven.

    1516 Washington Avenue, Facebook/PerfectGiftsSouthBeach
