Cute shops around the world

What I enjoy most about traveling, other than taking photos of cute things is visiting cute shops.  I like to do a bit of research about a city to see what kind of shops they have and if there are any unique and adorable stores to check out.

This post will be part one of the upcoming cute shops to visit around the world.  I have seen all of the shops in this post, and totally worth visiting when you get a chance since they are really cute and unique as well.
