You can click on this 12 South link and see all the available shopping opportunities. But here are our favorites.
First up, Serendipity - This store has food items, clothes, shoes, jewelry, candles and a little bit of everything. They had several items that were locally made and very unique. We bought the most number of items from here. Three pair of shoes, a top, a ring, and a candle all went home with us. The sales people were very nice and we look forward to shopping here again. They are available online but they have a small fraction of there merchandise listed there.
Another favorite was Whites mercantile. They were sort of an old fashioned kind of store with wood floors and shelving. They had house stuff, books, soaps, clothes, candy and lots more. I won't tell you what I bought here because someone reading this blog may be getting it for Christmas. But this one was definitely a favorite store. One of those stores that you look up and you have been looking around for 30 minutes easy.
If you are familiar with Sprinkles cupcakes they have a store there. But the fun thing is they have the cupcake ATM. Yep, it's a little machine that you make your selection and out pops your cupcake. Cute and delicious.....two things we appreciate.
We had lunch at Burger Up. We didn't eat until around 1:30 and they were still packed. Get your name on the list and hit a few of the close by shops while you wait. We started with fried pickles and onion rings.
I had a black and blue burger with regular fries.
We also a had a couple of classic burgers with sweet potato fries, a bacon cheeseburger and one turkey burger. All plates were clean. All tummies were satisfied. I am not sure that we wouldn't go to this area just to eat again. It was quite good. And reasonable - $10 for a burger and fries.
Our final stop was Draper James. This is Reese Witherspoon's store. It is super southern. As soon as you hit the door they welcome you and ask if you would like some sweet tea. Say what? Yep they have a decanter of sweet tea and they give you a cute little blue and white paper straw. I am not a tea drinker but those who had some loved it and I loved the idea.
Here we got a super cute little striped shirt and an adorable little camel swing jacket. In this store we found ourselves start using the words "investment piece" because those are the kind of coping skills we have. We would totally shop here again.
These beautiful blue doors welcome you in.
It is so cute and they have such great investment pieces (wink, wink).
We had an overcast, drizzly day and still managed to really enjoy the area and the shopping. It's a dream location for a girl trip.
Our sleep number mattress is being delivered today. We are very excited as we are way overdue for a new mattress. Looking forward to some good sleep this weekend. I will report back on how we like it.
Talk to you on Monday. Hope you have a great weekend.
