Savannah is dripping in delightful little shops and eateries. Each time I visit, the girls and babies spend a day shopping downtown in the historic district. These are our must-shop stores ...
The Paris Market and Brocante
Savannah Bee Company
One block down is the Savannah Bee Company. Just the creak of the screen door of this dog friendly gem reminds me that I am home in the deep South! This "sweet" little shop sells the most delicious award-winning artisinal honey and all sorts of honey and bee products from creams (Royal Jelly is my fave) to bee tee-shirts to children's books.
DC2 Design Interiors and Cafe
Now just walk across the street to DC2, a sophisticated and impressive shop that made it's way to our must-shop list just as soon as it opened! I have found two of my most prized decorative accessories in these four walls... and a paint color for my bedroom.
I love to snap a few quick pics of the kids when we're out and about downtown. The historic homes, steps, bricks, trees and squares are gorgeous. A part of me that I want to instill in my kids.
One Fish Two Fish
Now head to Whitaker street for yet another delightful must-shop. Full of eclectic and stylish furniture, lighting, bedding, art and accessories, it's worth the detour!
No. Four Eleven
Just down the street (and past a great paper store we didn't have time to visit) is another of our favorite must-shops. No. Four Eleven is full of fresh, crisp designs for bed, bath and home. As if that isn't enough, the store has the most intricate, gorgeous and unique monograms I've ever seen. And if I know anything about anything, it's monograms :-) One of these days I want to have a custom monogram designed with my initials. The store owners do this for around $100. The actual monograms start at $10 each, which isn't too bad compared to the prices in Atlanta.
Born and raised in Savannah, I grew up hearing stories of and seeing pictures of my parents, grandparents, great aunts and uncles shopping on these very streets, in these very buildings. So many years later, my sister and I and our children are literally following in their footsteps. That's just special, yall!
