Ok ladies (sorry dudes, but I don’t think many of you will chime in here). I’m on a quest!!! And I need your help! :)

Pieces, Atlanta

I draw LOTS of my inspiration from unique areas – interior design, jewelry, clothing, fabrics, pillows, shoes… So, I’m going to set aside 2-3 days a month for SHOPPING! Mostly window shopping, but who knows… ;) Anywho, I need to be sure that I’m constantly getting inspired to create new things, so that means lots of “research shopping.” It’s a serious matter.

This is where you come in, I need recommendations for some GREAT shops to visit. Mostly in Georgia, but I’m willing to possibly travel over a weekend here and there in other states to find some great stuff. So, do you know where I can get inspired?

I’m looking for all kinds of places: modern, antique, funky, trendy, fabric stores, antique shops, vintage stores, one-of-a-kind furniture shops, and shops that have ethnic, eclectic or “bazaar” type pieces, basically places you can’t necessarily

go find some overly manufactured cookie cutter things. And I don’t want to hear “Little 5 Points” as a generic answer, I need store NAMES!

And who knows, maybe I’ll hit you up for a shopping date ;)

Thanks in advance! I’m looking forward to hearing what you come up with.
