Santee Alley is a low-budget paradise for goods of all kinds. Located in the Fashion district of LA, it offers a little bit of everything for all shoppers, men and women alike. The market specializes in bargains in a bazaar like open-air market place. Remember, you can haggle away when buying!!!
What to buy: It's a great place for to go souvenir shopping rather than get suckered at the typical tourist traps. I like to go there for clothes and bags. You can get knockoffs and cheap clothes. I don't always buy but it's a good place to see alternative wares at discount prices.
What to pay: Varies.
The Macys Shopping plaza is accessible in 2 minutes from the 7th Metro Station. It's a big department store and direct connected with the Hyatt hotel. In the lower level are restaurants, a fitness studio and telecommunication-stores. In the entrance level are jewellers, clothing dealers and the US Postal Service.
What to buy: There are many special offers year round, especially at the end of the seasons. They offers clothing for men and women, cosmetics and various articels such as handbags, sunglasses, luggage...!
What to pay: Excellent place to get high quality goods for less money than the average!
This shop has a wide variety of items, from designer furniture to cheap kids' toys. Everything is well-designed and a little offbeat. This is one of my favorite places for gift shopping, and I always take out-of-town guests to visit.
What to buy: They have a great selection of art books.
If you appreciate good design you will like everything in the store.
They have some apparel, housewares, children's items (including the most creative toys and books!), posters, knicknacks, even some travel supplies (got a very good suede passport case there).
What to pay: It completely varies on what you get. Items range from $1 - $1000.
The Denim Doctors is the BEST place to find used jeans or have custom jeans made. If your one of those girls like myself who had one great pair of jeans but now they are too worn and tattered then this is the place for you. Especially recommended if you are a Levi's lover...
What to buy: DENIM....
What to pay: $$-$$$
You can't put a price on jeans that can make your ass look fantastic!
If your looking for cute and trendy clothes at fantastic prices than "Yessi" in the downtown Fashion District is the place for you...
Located at 1104 1/2 Santee right off of Maple & Santee Street in downtown Los Angeles, it is in the heart of the fashion district.
The best time to go is during the late morning or early afternoon...it's gets way too crowded after 3:00pm especially if your going on a weekend (not recommended)
What to buy: My favorite things there are the cute tops. They have everything from casual to dressy. They also have an wide array of hats and accessories too.
What to pay: Pants/Jeans about 25-60 bucks. Tops from 9-25 bucks.
You can find all things Japanese in Little Tokyo. Chopsticks, origami paper, bento boxes, kimonos, fans, etc. Fun!

Located in the heart of Downtown the Macy's Plaza offers many stores not just Macy's. Theres even a Bally's gym here, bookstore, a variety of fast food, Express, Victoria Secret, Robeks and others.
