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 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.
This is a great local candy shop that makes its own pralines, taffy, divinity, and other treats. They also sell a wide range of more standard commercial candies but the real treat is, of course, the home-made stuff.
There is a competitor, a very similar shop, called River Street Sweets, which is every bit as good, just in slightly different ways. They are on the same street only a short distance from each other. I suggest trying some candy from each one if you haven't been to them before. Reasonable people can easily differ on which is better and I think they are about equal, since I slightly prefer each one on different things.
What to buy: Their pralines are great, as is their divinity. They make great vanilla taffy and other flavours, too. Try to get fresh taffy! It's incredible when it's just been made.
What to pay: It depends.
