Best local shopping strip in Sydney?

Sometimes I cringe at the idea of going to another shopping Centre. Overcrowding, florescent lighting, together with so many chain stores that one shopping centre can often feel like a carbon copy of another.

By contrast, I love little street level rows of shops. Which ones do you like to go to, and what do they have to offer?

I like Darling Street in Rozelle. Great cafes, and there is an organic supermarket. Narwee has a great community feel too, however, a few of the coolest take away joints have shut up shops through unfortunate circumstances, sadly ):
I like Willoughby Road in Crows Nest. Boutique clothing stores, homewares, cafés, gift stores, lingerie, bookstores and music stores, as well as places to buy gourmet groceries and other foodie snacks. It's such a mixed bag of places to browse, which is exactly what I find so fun.
Cronulla has a lovely shopping strip with some adorable boutiques and cafes. Perfect for a lazy sunday stroll. Im also a fan of manly strip to the beach from the wharf.
When I lived in Summer Hill I thought their little strip of shops had everything you needed in a really nice compact area - supermarket, deli, butchers, pharmacy, bakery, plus some really nice cafes, a few pizza shops, a few knick knack shops, toys, kids clothes, cupcakes (!!). It's also right next to the station so easy to get to as well if you're in the vicinity.
Oxford St in Paddington! Although it is so sad to see that designers and businesses are struggling to stay afloat and pay their rent.
King Street Newtown is always the funnest place to be, and the food and entertainment is awesome. I spent a lot of time there even when I didn't live nearby! It's such a long street, stuffed with so many shops you can go there every day and not get bored.
The locals are sometimes amazing to watch as well - you get all sorts with fluoro hair and crazy vintage fashions.
Bonus: Tons of rad street art.
