Some of Our Favorite Shops
La Terra Natural Oils
*Walkable* $$ 1520 Bull Street Savannah, GA 31401 912.417.2638
Linda Lindgren Fuller and Joe Clearo have built this business “from scratch” with help from a chosen few, they are always ready to make improvements and meet new people! Linda’s nutritional focus and eye for decorating blended with Joe’s amazing ability to build and as Linda says, “fix things” brings a great balance; these two are quite a team! Local artists hang on their walls and visit the shop. Wonderful people to spend time with while trying new and amazing tastes.
Chocolat by Adam Turoni
*Bicycle/Drive* $$$ 323 West Broughton Street Savannah GA 912.335.2914
Named one of the top ten chocolatiers in North America, Adam Turoni is based in Savannah and is a true master of his craft. His chocolates are made at the Broughton Street location (”The Dining Room”), and he also has a second shop (”The Library”) on Bull Street.
Brighter Day Natural Foods
*Walkable* $$ 1102 Bull Street Savannah, GA 912.236.4703
Right next to the Sentient Bean and in town long before Whole Foods, Brighter Day is the place locals shop for all organic and natural groceries as well as dietary supplements. They also have a fantastic little deli and juice bar in the back!
Savannah Bee Company
*Bicycle/Drive* $$ 104 West Broughton Street Savannah, GA 912.233.7873
A true local Savannah business, Savannah Bee Company is a must visit. Though they've gotten bigger and more widely known in the past few years it's still the same little company run by Ted the Beekeeper. Be sure to visit the original store on Broughton St. and be extra special sure to go in for the mead tasting!
*Walkable* 2436 Bull St, Savannah, GA 31401 404. 374. 0956

For Art & Gifts
*Walkable* $ 2438 Bull Street Savannah GA 912.417.4561
One of the most quintessentially Savannah stores around, Starlandia offers ”used" art supplies and found items to jump start any kind of artist’s creative processes.

For Vintage Things
Graveface Records & Curiosities
*Walkable* $$ 5 W. 4Oth Street Savannah, GA 912.335.8018
Graveface is a wonderfully bizarre independent record store in the Starland District. Ostensibly it's a new and used vinyl shop but in practice it's a whole lot more, and a delightfully strange experience to boot. If your interest is piqued by taxidermy bats and vintage Eurhythmics albums, you owe it to yourself to go.
Picker Joe’s Antique Market
*Walkable* $$ 217 E 41st Street Savannah GA 912.239.4657
Our favorite antique store in Savannah and one of the best put together for just about anywhere in the country (and trust us, we go to a LOT of antique stores), Picker Joe’s is well laid out, well thought out, and well put together; it also has an amazing variety of antiques and highly competitive prices. Add to that a charming staff and a ton of vintage aircraft memorabilia and you can’t go wrong!
Starland Strange and Bazaar
*Walkable* $ 17 West 41st Street Savannah, GA
A completely unique shop. Filled with oddities and what not’s. Like Dolly Parton’s coat of many colors this store is just like that. Go and see all the awesomeness they have found to go home with you. Graphic tees, Starland gear, bags, accessories, gifts and more, and don’t forget to adopt a cactus while you are there. Thursday- Sundays
*Walkable* $-$$$ 2413 Bull Street Savannah, GA 912.335.2620
Gypsy World is a next-level vintage clothing store located in the heart of the Starland District. Owner Lisa Garneau Doyle prides herself in collecting one-of-a-kind vintage treasures from her world travels and curating them in her eclectic shop. Gypsy World Savannah’s goal is to provide the community with high quality vintage fashion, cultivate an environmentally sustainable shopping resource, and provide a positive creative space of equality for everyone through fashion.
*Bicycle/Drive* $ 127 E. Broughton Street Savannah, GA 912.201.0228
One of the coolest local businesses in town, Planet Fun is exactly what it sounds like. A whole planetoid of fun stuff! Actually, it's a vintage toy store with a high focus on the late 705 through the 905 and an incredible collection of rare and antique video games and memorabilia but it's still worth checking out.
*Walkable* $ 106 W Gwinnett Street Savannah GA 912.235.2476
Like Ciwie’s but more curated and intimate, The Future on Forsyth Park is our favorite vintage clothing and accessories store and just an all-around cool place to see. Super neat decor and super friendly staff make shopping there a really pleasant experience. They also have some of the most eclectic clothes you’re ever likely to see! You’ll have to go twice, just so you can say you’ve gone ”Back to the Future!”
For Book Worms
*Walkable/Bicycle* $ 1205 Bull Street, Savannah, GA 912.349.3095
They focus on sharing the art and culture of comic books. “We love comic books. The art, the storytelling, the history. So much of our current popular culture is driven by square panels, bright colors and sounds written out into words. Neighborhood Comics is our way of contributing to this culture. We create custom experiences designed for real comic book nerds. In case you didn’t know, we think you’re SUPER.” There are times where you will find the 501st, a wookie and other characters hanging out there.
The Book Lady Bookstore
*Bicycle/Drive* $$ 6 East Liberty Street Savannah, GA 912.233.3628
The Book Lady is probably the nicest bookstore in the whole southeast and a perfect place to stop for book lovers or anyone else. Specializing in used and antiquarian books, it's nestled in a step down on Liberty St. and is as cozy and eclectic as you'd hope a used bookstore to be. Stop in and say hello to Joni (The Book Lady)!
