Savannah 2013 {Shops}

Along with eating and drinking delicious foods and cocktails through Savannah, J & I also did our share of shopping and browsing through Savannah’s fave shops.
I know we did not hit all the shops, but my favorites that we did visit are listed below. All are located in Savannah’s Historic District.
One Fish, Two Fish
This shops ranks as my most favorite shop this year. The displays and vignettes were inspiring and amazing.
The collection of Bellamy oil paintings were outstanding. I could have taken home each one. Believe it or not, my favorite was not one of an oyster shell but that of palm fronds, sooooo Southern.
But I did love her oyster shell paintings too.
I loved the wreaths donned with oyster shells and antlers.
Oyster shell trees and wreaths in various sizes made for an interesting display.
The success of One Fish, Two Fish has not gone unnoticed. Savannah draws visitors for all over the world, and national magazines feature the store regularly and tout it as a must-visit shopping destination. Local magazines use the shop as a resource for trends and gift ideas.
I agree. One Fish, Two Fish is a must-see.
I could not leave without purchasing a couple things.
Oyster shell spheres (ornaments)
Mariposa oyster shell salt cellar
The Paris Market & Brocante
I LOVE this shop so much. As you walk through the door, the shop transports you to another time and place. The vintage nature of the Paris Market is definitely a sight for all senses.

The Halloween decor was whimsical and “spooktacular”.

The upstairs and downstairs displays are well appointed. The vignettes are some of the best I’ve ever seen.

The Paris Market and Brocante, located on 36 West Broughton Street in the heart of historic Savannah, is a storehouse of treasures. This irresistible invitation to shop the world’s most exotic and exclusive markets is the brainchild of owner Paula Danyluk.
I could not leave without the following finds.

Two skull & crossbone double old-fashions for my scotch and ginger ales this Halloween season.

Eyeballs that will look great in my large drink dispenser for ghoulish cocktails.
A Patch NYC candle that smells of Siberian conifer forests. Soooo holiday!
d. luxe
This shop is located only a couple blocks from Joey & Michael’s condo in the Design District. The shop is a new addition to Whitaker Street since my last visit.
d. luxe offers great home accessories, furniture, and coffee table books. I fell in love with the vast array of chandeliers and lighted wall art.
Eiffel Tower
DSCI1269 savannah is a home and garden shop located in downtown Savannah, GA dedicated to providing quality products to both the locals and visitors.
They carry many products from beautiful one of a kind antique pieces to simplistic items that are functional.
d. luxe’s custom line of Savannah Square candles are absolutely awesome.

I could not leave with a Savannah treat, a custom candle by Seda France monogrammed in SAV. Perfect!

Adam Turoni
If you LOVE chocolate, run to Chocolat by Adam Turoni. Not only is the chocolate to die for, but the presentation of the chocolates and look of the shop is impeccable. The attention to detail is outstanding.
I was happy to meet the chocolatier himself as well as his partner. I see a star in the making.
At Chocolat By Adam Turoni you are invited to indulge in a variety of unique and decadent chocolates made fresh daily. The talented chef will also customize a whimsical design to accommodate your personal style or special event theme as . . . "Savannah's First Artisan Chocolatier!”
We picked up a number of choices and nibbled on them before retiring last Friday evening. Of course, my fave were the homemade peanut butter cups.
Marc Jacobs
You’ve heard his name. Right? His offerings are a little too “hip” for me, but the shop encompasses many choices for the hipster, younger crowd. Skinny jeans…oh my!!! I wish this “fad” would leave soon. Grown men should never wear skinny jeans. LOL!!!!

I loved the large elephant displayed with a witches hat in the massive front window. We could not resist a photo op. I am told their window displays are always the best.

No. Four Eleven
Located in the Design District, this precious shop is filled with the finest linens.
They are known for their selections of custom monograms. Hmmmm? I might see a custom monogram in my future. What’cha think?
Website: No. Four Eleven

Number Four Eleven opened its doors in Savannah, Georgia in 2006. Claire Lindley Reeve and Courtland Smith Stevens mix classic and fresh ideas into the historic storefront in their Downtown Design District location.
You'll find crisp table and bed linens alongside vintage furniture finds.  It's the perfect place to find a one-of-a-kind item or a gift for a friend.  Make your purchase extra special by adding an heirloom quality monogram!
The Prospector
Newish to Broughton Street, this shop is an actual product line of fabulous skin care and shaving products. The facade of the shop is classy and welcoming. The location on Broughton Street opened in September.

I left with the two most pleasant smelling lotions that I ever encountered --- Wormwood Absinthium Cream {a non-hallucinogenic skin hydrant} & Lavandula Angustifolia Cream {a nourishing skin hydrant with rose hip and pomegranate oil}.

I cannot visit Savannah without a stop into J. Parker for their version of Perlis’ crawfish. J. Parker offers polos and hats with their own coastal symbol, the crab.

Villa Savannah
Set in the same space as the former DC2, the shop contains women’s clothing and home accessories. The space is vast and the offerings ecletic.

I left with a great candle by Woodwick. I love the faux bois finish on the container.

I also left with these great metal chalkboard markers. I will use these for a long time when I entertain.
Modern in design, 24e offers an array of fabrics, furniture, and accessories. I loved the clay octopus and crab vases and bowls. Too bad I did not take a picture to cherish.

Shopping Savannah is a real treat. I seem to love helping local economies.
