One of the best things about Savannah is living in a creative environment. The historic downtown is lined with SCAD buildings, art galleries and my favorite the local Savannah shops.

There is nothing better than spending a Saturday or Sunday afternoon shopping down Broughton Street.

Brought Christmas Tree

Over the weekend, Randy and I decided to check out some local shops to find Christmas presents, and I thought there was no better way to take my camera along and share those shops with you guys.

So here is my guide to Savannah shopping, the local way.

We started off parking near Broughton Street and found one of my new favorites.

Capital Bee Company

This is a fairly new shop to the city, and a bit off the beaten path, so without carefully looking around you just might miss it. Capital Bee Company’s story is my favorite. The owner started the business over 10 years ago as a teenager. Selling at Farmer’s Market, until he opened up his own shop, Capital Bee Company. They specialize in honey. There Cinnamon Whipped Honey was my favorite. Not to mention the delicious honey straws make a perfect gift for tea lovers.

Next up is a Savannah favorite,

Savannah Bee Company

Much larger of a company, Savannah Bee Company is a must. The honey is delicious, with lots of options. But they also have other options including soaps, shampoos, lotions and more using their honey products. One of my favorites it the Earl Grey chapstick, that reminds me of a hot comforting cup of Earl Grey tea every time I use it. I would encourage anyone to stop in and just take a few minutes to taste test your way through their honey selection.

For a more vintage feel, check out

The Paris Market

This shop acts as a shop and coffee shop all in one. The shop is full of little trinkets, jewelry, furniture and my favorite a little vintage bead station you are sure to find something for everyone here. I love to browse this store with a Lavender almond milk latte exploring all the little things it has to offer. Not to mention the building that holds The Paris Market is just a site out of Paris, France.

A recent favorite is

Nourish

They specialize in natural bath products. A place to go for relaxation. You can pop in Nourish to try out their hand scrubs, leaving you feeling refreshed and renewed. They have everything relaxation, including bath bombs, homemade soaps, foot scrub brushes and essential oil patches for headaches and aches. The store smells good enough to just step in and take a swift smell.

These are just a few of my favorite local Savannah shops. Can’t wait to share some of my favorite Savannah boutiques to come.
