For those of you brave enough to go out amongst the crowd in hopes of a good deal - don’t forget about our local businesses.
If you’re looking for that unique, unusual, “perfect” gift, they’ll always remember, check out the local stores and boutiques first. Savannah is full of so many wonderful local retailers, offering a variety of things to choose from for everyone on your list; clothing, jewelry, handmade trinkets and baubles, music, collectibles … all sorts of one-of-a-kind finds that you won’t find at the big retailers.
Tucked away on Bull Street, just north of Forsyth Park is Folklorico; full of fair trade finds from around the world. Have an avid music collector on your list? You won’t want to miss the extensive collection of albums (and other curiosities) at Graveface Records in the Starland District. Wander around the Design District on Whitaker Street where you’ll find Custard, One Fish Two Fish, and La Paperie (perfect for the stationery lover on your list).
If you’re shopping Historic Downtown Savannah and haven’t stopped by 24e recently, check out the newly remodeled store – more than the coolest furniture in town, they also have groovy household accessories, custom kinetic leather cuffs made from reclaimed upholstery leathery and the newly introduced Salacia Salt scrubs – made right here in Savannah! You never know what one-of-a-kind favorites from around the world that you might find at Paris Market, another local favorite; jewelry, candles, décor, bath products, baby items, books – a special something for that special someone on your list that will become a treasured favorite.
Looking to stuff some stockings? Do it with gifts that have soul; handmade soaps from Nourish, everything honey from Savannah Bee Company, seasonings and salts from The Salt Table … just to
