Point Clear/Fairhope {Shopping}


You already know that I cannot travel without doing some shopping. After stopping at the Premium Outlets in Gulfport, J Crew & Banana Republic, J & I made our way to the quaint town of Fairhope, AL. Point Clear does not have much shopping except for a gift shop at The Grand.


Remember, J & I visited Fairhope this past summer 2012 and loved it so much. I was so happy to be back.

Enjoy my pics of many of my favorite things from Fairhope.

Here is my incomplete list of must-stop shoppes:

Crown & Colony was established by Ann Fargason  in 1992 in Fairhope, Alabama.  Aubergines Culinary Antiques and Oriential Rugs, a secound location, opened in 2002. Since then her son, Rob, has opened R.F. Architectural and Gardens Antiques also in Fairhope, AL.

The owners make frequent trips to Italy, Germany, Belgium, England and France searching for antiques and decorative accessories of the highest quality, normally receiving a container of goods from Europe every  month.

Inventory in the shops turn frequently as Aubergine Culinary Antiques & Oriental Rugs is well known for their competitive prices.

I especially loved the confit pots, spring green hydrangeas, silver domes, and oyster plates.

This store was closed, but I cannot wait to go back. It looked precious and filled with many fabulous things.


This pine cone tree was gracing one of the main streets. I am not sure of its purpose, but I loved it.


Of course, I purchased several items for the home. Gotta support small businesses. You’ll see what I came home with tomorrow.

What do you think I came home with this time?
