Brookline is what we consider a little oasis beyond the beer-soaked students and Sox fans of Kenmore and Commonwealth Avenue—a neighborhood equally accommodating of ages, walks of life, families, all of it. With businesses mostly clustered around specific squares, Coolidge Corner and Brookline Village are the most satisfying in terms of indie shopping. Here we've gathered our favorite spots for everything from strollers to mystery novels, handcrafted jewelry to handmade soaps. In addition, we've touched upon running mecca Marathon Sports in Washington Square and Kgirl juniors boutique at Putterham Village. Did we mention this was a family-friendly area? A shopping gem is guaranteed for everyone with these ten boutiques.
