The Maya Hatcha 

Maybe you’ve seen the linen dresses and famous Buffalo sandals in the window at The Maya Hatcha, maybe you were smart enough to restock your summer wardrobe with some of their breezy basics before this particularly sweaty summer in Miami, but did you know that The Maya Hatcha should be your number one go-to for incense in Miami? The selection is a delightful sensory array of incense for all occasions and preferences; whether you’re looking for something floral or a little funkier, you can find it there. Here’s an insider tip, if you need a quick gift, they have incense that pair with zodiac signs making for the perfect affordable and personalized gift.

Condom USA 

Condom USA has long elicited giggles from passerby’s, it’s a veritable institution on Grand Avenue. They stock goods that range from silly bachelorette items to sex items far beyond their namesake, but did you know that you can buy a book about sexercise there? If you’ve already tried all the workout studios and gyms in Coconut Grove (plus our free yoga in Peacock Park and on the roof of the Mayfair), why not throw this into your work out regimen?

Salon Renova 

Salon and Spa Renova, right on Grand Avenue, is easy to spot – it’s the store with all the wigs in the window, you know the one! If you’ve walked by and wondered about what they do, it turns out, it’s probably way more than what you thought. Sure, you can buy a wig or toupee, but they specialize in truly personalized wigs, decided on by consultation with their wig expert who can recommend the perfect combination for your needs. If you have a costume party coming up or have always wondered what you’d look like as a turn of the century dame or with a Marie Antoinette ‘do they also specialize in period style or character looks!
