Dear Friends Abroad: Meet Shopikon

What is Shopikon, you might ask? Good question!

Shopikon is a guide, via website and app, that allows you to discover the best local shops and independent retailers throughout the world. They currently have guides for Berlin, New York, London, Barcelona, and Vienna, and as of October 15th, there will be one for Paris, too!

I’ve never used its features myself, but next time I’m home in New York I definitely plan to scope out some NYC suggestions! And for those of you taking advantage of study abroad opportunities in one of these cities now (cough, Sarah Rose and Allie) I’m sure it’ll come in handy getting to live like a local.

And don’t forget to download the app so you can explore on the go, especially with their map feature!

Have you used Shopikon? What did you think?
