I never thought I would love Georgia, or rather, found Georgia interesting. This is me being a jaded New York, I know it, but I also just imagined it being a colony full of blonde Southern Belles eating peaches. That obviously wasn't the case with Savannah, Georgia. In fact, Savannah is one of cutest cities (basically the Southern Gilmore Girls, if you will) I've ever been too, and I can definitely see myself going back one day. Among the places I went to on my trip was a three-story Paula Deen buffet restaurant. Needless to say, that wasn't the best Southern food I had there, but the prospect of seeing Paula Deen ride in a horse made of butter was still priceless (unfortunately, she never showed up).
1. @Home Vintage General. I felt as if I was in a cross between Ariel the Mermaid’s oceanic den where her “gadgets and gizmos” were kept and the inside of Martha Stewart's magazine. The store was a mixture of bobbles both new and old, each hand-picked to give the a cute just-bought-from-a-fleamarket-vibe. My personal favorite? The cameo necklaces strung together by black velvet.
2. Civvies New & Recycled Clothing. I must say without Civvies my overall opinion of Savannah wouldn't have been the same-- imagine shelves filled with purses and shoes, all under the 25 dollar range. If you’re in of groovy bell-bottoms that your parents wore in the 1970's, this is your hub.
3. The Paris Market. No, I didn’t make a quick stop to the "City of Blinding Lights." But there was, surprisingly, a store which devoted itself to Parisian delights in the South. Sold within this heavenly store, in the midst of West Broughton Street, was jewelry, clothing, house wares, but most importantly, the Paris Market’s café. Their Fleur De Lies cookie may have looked like a simple sugar cookie, but it was certainly more complex in its flavors. The setting was serene with French music pounding throughout, as the store is decorated in the style of traditional Parisian shops and cafes. It was here I enjoyed seltzers infused with unique syrups of my choice. Out of trial and error I conclude Pear & Pistachio, and Pomegranate & Apricot are the two winning combinations.
