First day in the the city, done! After a long walk yesterday, now I start to try and understand my way around Savannah. Luckily, our hotel was centrally located, which made it easy to get around.
Side note: If you ever visit Savannah don’t pay for valet parking. Street parking was easily available, plus it’s free after 5pm…score!
Barbie and I visited a few stores on Bull Street…rather than going to an area full of chain stores and restaurants, we looked for an area with a bit more vision and originality…We found it all. This area of Savannah is called Starland. Amongst the home-grown goodness here is an art store that sold used art supplies, Starlandia Creative Supply. It is the kind of store would have been a perfect fit in Wynwood prior to all the gentrification. There were also thrift stores like Gypsy World, House of Strut (which was one of the best vintage apparel stores I’ve seen in a long time), The Vicar’s Wife and a few more.
I appreciate a good cup of coffee or a latte… We walked into a super cool bakery called Back in The Day Bakery. Great coffee! Everything about the place was perfect. All vintage decor beautiful and practical. It looked like every piece of furniture had been salvaged. There’s also a super dope record store with tons of different and cool things, Graverecords & Curiosities. One regret, I didn’t get a pin from the store and/or a t-shirt… Meh…
It seem like we found the best part of the area for independent stores and good coffee. Back in the Day Bakery made me feel at home. Not as much as Zak The Baker but their salted cookies give Zak a run for it… LOL!
It was a great day!
