As a child, one of my favorite things to do with my mom was shop for antiques. We loved exploring a handful of boutiques, searching for something truly unique. When my mom was in town this past spring, we took a quick jaunt to Savannah for fun days filled with antique shopping. We went to a few shops on Broughton, including the Paris Market (one of my favorites), and a few places off the beaten path. One of my favorite stops was Pinch of the Past. Located on Whitaker Street, I knew was going to like the store as soon as I walked in! They specialize in architectural antiques — think old wooden doors, wrought iron gates, hardware for doors, tile and more. I loved browsing through all of their gems and even found two antique fox brass door knockers with a matching door bell for our home.
Antique shopping is such a fun way to spend the day, and a great way to beat the summer heat! To go shopping, I donned a dress from of one my favorite designers, Rebecca Taylor. I found this floral dress on Tuckernuck — which I’ve been blogging about for years. Tuckernuck is one of my favorite online destinations for preppy clothes, and they just recently they opened a store in DC. I paired the open back blue dress with a raffia fringe navy clutch and navy wedges that I purchased from Tuckernuck a few seasons ago.
If you are looking for lightweight dresses to wear in the extreme August heat, look at Tuckernuck’s website. The next time you’re in Savannah, I’d definitely recommend checking out Pinch of the Past, and you can browse our other recommendations on our full Savannah Travel Guide. I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far!
