For years, I’ve heard wonderful things about The Paris Market and Brocante in Savannah, Georgia, but just recently got to shop there myself.

It was everything I had heard. Part mercantile, part museum, and all packed full of design inspiration.

 The two story building holds home decor, kitchen essentials, perfumes, books, soaps, candles, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera . . . Everything has a warm leathery charm and feels like an old,well loved library.

The window displays are crazy popular. Ever – changing with the seasons, the window above was used for a Bastille Day soiree’.

curiosTheir bent towards the natural display items is what I love most.

While I was at The Paris Market, I scooped up a book and a few pretty paper rolls that I have no idea how I’ll use, but they were so pretty, they had to come home with me. But the best thing I found was a new favorite store. It’s sadly too far away from me for regular shopping excursions, but fortunately for all of us, they have a web site: here.

Have you been to The Paris Market?

  1. i LOVE the paris market! it is eye candy overload and it takes me 2-3 rounds throughout the store to take it all in…my husband has learned it’s best just to sit outside at one of the little tables…he’s pretty happy if i come out empty handed!

    i don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love the paris market!

  2. I have been to Savannah countless times and have never been to this store. Clearly I have issues. I love wasp nests. I scatter them about here and I sell them.

  3. savannah’s my hometown! the downtown area was pretty depressed when I was growing up with now SCAD has transformed it into a beautiful, lovely place again. paris market is terrific and there are so many other great places to stumble on while walking around. so glad you visited and liked it 🙂

    1. How nice to have grown up in such a history-rich city! I have almost the same story. Growing up in Pensacola, we never went downtown because many of the business were boarded up. But now, downtown Pensacola has been revitalized and is beautiful!

  4. Savannah is the Belle of the South…actually, the prettiest city in America, so it figures that they’d have a gorgeous shop. Last night I started re-reading — it’s my third delve into the book that put Savannah back on the charts — Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We’re headed down there in a few weeks and I needed a refresher! The Paris Market is on my to-do list!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful place to shop. I also have been to Savannah but had no idea of such a treasure. I feel another road trip in my future.
    Thanks

  6. Love the shop you featured. I love Savannah and next time I get there I will definitely look up The Paris Market. Glad you had a great time there.

    Have a great week, Leslie Anne. Thanks for your encouragement last week. I am better.

  7. What a treasure trove! I just love Savannah, so much quirkiness and character, this store is a must see on my next visit~

  8. What a fabulous shop, I wish we had stores like that in Auckland. I live in New Zealand and unfortunately as we are such a small population, only 4.5 million in the whole country, most of the design stores carry a lot of the same products. We do have a similar shop on a much tinier scale that I discovered last month and seeing this post, reminds me to go back and see if they have anything new. I think they go to France and buy in small lots.

    I came over from Savvy Southern Style.

    1. Welcome to Fairhope Supply Co! Glad you found me here.

      Living in New Zealand must be interesting. It always looks so beautiful in pictures. My husband always says that is where he wants to move if our USA Government doesn’t get its act together! The good thing now, is you can always browse and order items over the internet. The Paris Market will certainly ship – although it may cost as much to ship to New Zealand as the item itself!

      Thanks for reading!

  9. I got to go the Paris Market last spring. It was amazing! Somehow, I was so excited that I completely FORGOT to check out the window displays so I was glad to see the picture you posted. I saw the door and charged on full steam.
    Getting ready to follow you! I LOVE Fairhope–Marsha in Prattville, AL

    1. So glad to have you join us at Fairhope Supply Co. Prattville isn’t too far away, and I actually like to stop there and visit antique stores!
      Thanks for reading and following.
