“ We love Destination PSP. We've bought most of the stuff in the store. It's packed with beautifully designed Palm Springs-branded merchandise, clothing and other mid-century modern accessories. Many of their products are even locally made; we just picked up a couple of ultra-cool tissue box covers in the style of modern houses that were made locally. Great store; would definitely recommend for anyone who likes mid-century modern style or wants Palm Springs-branded clothing that's a step above a tacky t-shirt shop. ”

“ This store is, hands-down, one of the best stores on the main drag through downtown Palm Springs, Quality merchandise enjoyed by both tourists and locals. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. A must for anyone strolling the downtown area. ”
“ I enjoyed discovering Destination PSP this time around while in Palm Springs. Great store to explore, fun, cool merchandise, not your regular souvenir, but cool, nice designed ones. Fun t-shirts, towels, totes, mugs. Great reproductions of posters from Palm Springs International Film Festival that would make a nice art addition to your wall. Cool books and DVD-s dedicated to the area. Palm Springs needed a modern store like this, it so fits the area. Great customer service. You can get fun gifts here or souvenirs that would ad something cool to your place! ”

“ This is a GREAT shop if you're looking for affordable midcentury modern accent pieces! We were also happy to see a fun little local business that stayed open a bit after hours for us late-comers, so we could get a look around - thanks so much guys!! We only get to town from San Diego county once every couple of months, so our shopping time is limited (we're hoping to order from your website, since we're back home now). We loved the wall of items to raise money for local non-profits - what an excellent idea, and perfect for the community. We will be placing an online order, telling all of our friends about your store, and be back to say hi real soon!! ”
“ This is a wonderful store, especially if you want memories of Palm Springs and Modernism, and women's, men's, children pool wear, cards, ect ”
“ This is unfairly categorized as a souvenir shop, but it's so much more than that. This place feels like the storefront for all things Palm Springs: friendly helpful people in the staff, colorful gifts to take home and give away, clean modernist styling everywhere, and expertly curated selection of clothes, cards, housewares, posters, etc. I stop in here every time I visit Palm Springs, and I always leave with at least a smile - make this a destination on your downtown walkabout! ”
