It all started with a deflated basketball. Though longtime friends Mike Kennedy and Eric Martin scoured downtown Boston for an inflating needle to fill it, no shops in the area carried one. They were frustrated—and they realized that other Bostonians looking for athletic gear were likely frustrated too. So in 1983, they opened City Sports, a shop stocked with all the footwear, athletic apparel, and sports equipment that the metropolis had been missing.

Nearly three decades later, Mike and Eric's neighborhood business has expanded to 20 shops across the East Coast. In addition to stocking popular brands such as Vibram, The North Face, and Patagonia, the store engineers its own CS by City Sports line. Shoppers include yogis, cyclists, and tennis players—anyone seeking to outfit active lifestyles, whether they're playing a team sport or braving the hike up the world's largest gumdrop. In addition to footwear and apparel, the staff stocks fitness equipment such as kettlebells, lifting gloves, and dumbbells.

As they peruse the store, shoppers can find boxes filled with desert boots by Clarks, sstylish flats by Toms and Dansko, and the ghosts of basketball players past wearing classic Chuck Taylor high-tops by Converse.

Since 1968, Jerry’s Artarama has stocked shelves with multitudes of tools and supplies and helped artists show off finished work with custom framing. The comprehensive inventory fulfills artists’ every need, featuring everything from acid-free blank stretched canvases to Lukas oil colors, which have been transmitting images to paper since 1862. Although prices vary depending on matting and glass choices, a custom frame can protect and showcase a diploma, favorite 8”x10,” or beloved box of cereal.

Newer titles peacefully co-exist with gently used books in Cellar Stories' paper paradise, including leather-bound classics such as The Sound and the Fury ($20), pulp paperbacks such as Dangerous Trade ($27), and kitschy collector’s items such as a signed copy of Blackstone's Secrets of Magic ($500). In addition to an impressive collection of modern first editions, the knowledgeable staff can point you to a notable selection of art history, architecture, poetry, children's books, and autobiographies written by famous postmaster generals.

Symposium Books's used volumes surround visitors with the aromas of beloved pages, and a trove of new books elicits scintillating discussions. Recent fiction releases such as Jim Harrison's Returning to Earth, a bittersweet memoir, transport readers to faraway lands and fresh sentiments, and art books including Andy Warhol by Andy Warhol ($27.98) array glossy spreads of eye candy and showcase the solidness of homemade coffee tables. Academic tomes, children’s titles, and graphic novels by local and international artists also parade across brimming shelves, where literary joy waits between pages like a fugitive paper doll.

Ease into the day with a 6:45 a.m. Vinsyana yoga class with rising-sun salutations on Mondays or empower your prettiest part with a belly-dance class on Thursdays. Hula-hoop dance and urban hip-hop bring rhythm, grace, and choreography into any weekly routine or routine of salvaging dryer lint to stuff a spare mattress. New classes are added to The Spot's schedule about every six weeks, so fast learners can mix and match their five to master the fancy footwork of a wide array of dances (all classes must be redeemed within five weeks of attending the first session.)
