    Savannah's CANDY KITCHEN: Oh, those pecans!!!

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jan 19, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barrels and shelves and cases filled with every possible confectionl But when it comes to chocolate covered pecans.... my drool embarrasses me. :-)
    You can watch them twist and turn the taffy as it automatically cuts, wraps and twists it into its paper. Free samples are cordially offered around the shop.
    This is just such a typical old fashioned candy shop filled with every delectible version of sugar... you really shouldn't miss it.

    What to buy: PECANS !!!! Why else come to Georgia?

    Intrigueing and inviting--Antiques

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jan 19, 2008

    I can hardly resist a good antique shop and there are many in Savannah. They're scattered in the residential neighborhoods so you have to watch for them. Evidentally their zoning laws monitor their signage because everything is done in moderation and very tasteful. Most of the antiques were from the 1800's which would be suitable to the homes in that area... but if you seek something special for your late victorian, you are likely to find an appropriate treasure.

    2 malls: don't bother with the malls

    by PA2AKgirl Written Jan 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Oglethorpe mall and another shopping area out that way just aren't as good as they could be. If you are looking for something that you can usually find at a mall, perhaps you could go here, but I would try the downtown shops first. They are more fun and it's always good to support local merchants

    What to buy: There is a great place on River Street where you can watch people make incredible candles. Also, I believe it's called the Savannah Candy Kitchen also on River Street...they have wonderful things to choose from.

    What to pay: less than you would in most major cities

    River Street Sweets: More Great Candy, Pralines, etc.

    by WulfstanTraveller Written May 26, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great candy shop that makes its own pralines, divinity, taffy, and other candy. They also sell a variety of more standard commercial stuff, but the home-made stuff is the reason to go here. This is near, very similar to, and just as good as, another place, Savannah Candy Kitchen, and I recommend trying both and seeing which one likes better since neither is clearly better than the other.

    What to buy: Pralines, taffy (especially freshly made), divinity.

    What to pay: It depends.

    River Street Candle Factory: Great decorative candles!

    by tatyanap Written Jul 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Even if you don't like candles, you MUST visit this store. It offers beautiful decorative candles. It smells soooooo good there!

    Also, you can watch a candlemaker at work.

    What to buy: Candles, of course.

    I bought a "pie candle" -- crafted fruits are arranged in the crystal dish and covered by transparent wax. My friends at home thought it was a real pie. They are not stupid, either. It really looks like a pie until you literally stick your nose into it.

    Many craft stores are offering pie candles. This store offers truly realistic "pies."

    I ADORE this store. Being a Francophile might make me slightly biased, but I couldn't avoid it. Once I found the absinthe spoons shaped like Eiffel Towers with the "absinthe" sugar cubes, it was all over!

    What to buy: This store has wrapping paper, old fashioned candy, books, art, antiques, buttons, tie clips, sage for smudging, etc., etc. Everything is cute beyond belief. There's even a French "bar" serving beverages. The staff was extra sweet.

    Juliette Low was the founder of Gilr Scouts, and spent her childhood in Savannah, Georgia. Her childhood home is open for tours and also has a gift shop in the basement. Because of her connection with theGirl Scouts (and Brownies and Daisies), the gift shop sells a number of souvenirs targeted at girls in the various scouting organizations. We bought souvenir pins and some Christmas ornaments for our daughter and her friends.

    What to buy: Souvenirs associated with Girl Scouts, Brownies, and Daisies.

    Although this shop specializes in tobacco in all its forms (including Indonesian clove cigarettes), I'm listing it because of the varied and unique chess sets sold here. Some of the sets feature football figures, Civil War characters, etc.

    Oglethorpe Mall: Savannah shopping

    by b1bob Updated Dec 13, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oglethorpe Mall

    The largest shopping centre in Savannah and, I daresay, between Charleston, SC and Jacksonville, FL. Every one of the abovementioned categories rents space by the month at Oglethorpe Mall.

    What to buy: Of course you can get anything under the sun here, but I would concentrate on buying uniquely Southern things (cookbooks, postcards, etc.), especially if you're from out of the area.

    What to pay: It depends on what you're looking for. If it's not too terribly upscale, not too many U.S. dollars will leave your wallet.

  • Custard Boutique: Custard Boutique - hidden gem!

    by ErinNYC Written Mar 22, 2011

    Custard Boutique is my favorite place to shop in Savannah. The owner is so friendly and helpful. She has a really great eye for fashion and finds unique brands that you can't get anywhere else. Last time I went in there, Custard had a new line called Threadware which was so cool. And then the next week, I saw it on the cover of Savannah Magazine!!

    What to buy: dresses, dresses and more dresses! Custard has the best going-out clothes. And it's nice to know that I won't see the same outfits coming & going.

    What to pay: Her prices tend to be pretty reasonable and the quality is beautiful.

  • savannah antique jewelry: pure heaven

    by melissaburkholder Written Apr 10, 2011

    Ladies, prepare to stay a while. Savannah Antique Jewelry located inside 37th Street Antiques at 201 east 37th Street (The big yellow house on the corner of 37th streets and Abercorn), has the best collection of antique and estate jewelry I have ever seen. There are over 1000 pieces and also another 100 or more design pieces that are put together by skilled craftsman and include antique artifacts. Those are all one-of-a-kind and have been displayed in museums across the country.....but they are still very reasonably priced. In the antique section of SAJ, you can find everything from vintage engagement rings to platinum and diamond earrings to huge pearl studs and wonderful clasps. The proprietor is happy to play and is extremely knowledgeable about both her product and the city of savannah. If she isn't there just ask the front desk to call her and she will head down to help you unless she is on one of her famous buying trips! Call 912-233-0064 if you need directions! Open 7 days a week! HAVE FUN!

    What to buy: antiques and collectibles. Good restaurants abound!

    What to pay: A wide variety of costs. Also there is th 37th Cafe next door with its' cordon bleu trained chef. After playing with the antique jewelry, head there for lunch, dinner or brunch on sunday.
    The portions are huge, so you may want to split an order.
