Savannah Shopping

I scored a whole bunch of treasures when we were in Savannah. Maybe too many treasures. But there are so many great shops in Savannah that I couldn't resist.

First treasure: I found another Rosenthal vase in an antique mall! As you may recall, I inherited two and bought another on eBay a couple years ago. I always keep an eye out for them, but I never find them, so I was stoked to find one!

A little research shows that this is a design by Bjorn Wiinblad. Here's a close up of the design:

I found the vase on our first afternoon in town at the Wright Square Antique Market. That's where we also found these Junior Deluxe Editions of classic children's books. I love the designs and now want to buy dozens of them for an adorable library for L.

I've found a bunch on Etsy and eBay now, so library forthcoming.

On Saturday we drove out to Keller's Flea Market.

I didn't really find much there, but it's fun to wander around and look at junk. H. bought a couple records, and I bought this weird cat plate.


Back in town we went to ShopSCAD, which sells art by students, alumni and faculty of the Savannah College of Art and Design.

If you visit Savannah, I highly recommend you pop in here. They had lots of great and beautiful things, including paintings and prints, ceramics, scarves, toys, etc.

That's where I bought this pretty little Irene McCollam vase.

Which means I'm now hoarding white vases.

Which is cool, I guess.

Somewhere we looked but didn't buy anything was The Paris Market, which has a huge assortment of pretty and nice smelling things. I wanted to go back there and buy things, but we didn't have time. So, nothing to show, but worth a visit.

We also drove to the Habersham Antique Market. Once again, I didn't buy anything, but not for lack of coveting. Everything I liked was kind of big, and my suitcase was kind of full, and H. totally antique-blocked me. But treasures abound!

With all the boutiques and antique stores, Savannah is a tchotchke-hoarder's dream.
