Though the street is just a few blocks long, it’s packed with an eclectic mix of antique shops, thrift stores, upscale boutiques, and national retail chains. Here are some of the stores that top our list of the best in Savannah shopping:

Savannah Shopping: Broughton Street
The Paris Market and Brocante – Located in the heart of Savannah’s historic district, The Paris Market houses two floors of vintage treasures and curiosities sourced from around the world. “Brocante” means flea market, and — true to the name — you’ll discover many salvaged and one-of-a-kind items throughout the store, in addition to signature items created exclusively for the shop (the “Savannah” Paris Market Candle, for example).
If you only have a limited amount of time to spend on Broughton, The Paris Market is a must-see. You’ll also want to visit The Paris Cafe (within the store) to sample a macaroon or two. My favorite find on a recent visit? An antique printer cabinet filled with Parisian art sketches. Location: 36 W. Broughton Street.

Here are a few favorite shots from our recent trip to Savannah:
The Paris Market is a visual delight, where there’s something unique just waiting to be discovered in every nook and cranny of the store.
Civvies | New & Recycled Clothing – If your wardrobe is in need of an update but you place the utmost value on originality, Civvies should be your first stop in Savannah. It’s Daisy’s favorite store on Broughton Street and where she consistently finds a plethora of funky recycled clothing from some of her favorite eras. On our most recent visit, she scored a high-neck retro orange and white swimsuit that looked like it was straight out of a 50s Palm Springs fashion editorial, a B&W checked windbreaker that was clearly a castoff from an 80s music video, and a classic Everlast tank top.

Oh Civvies, how we love your quirky little shop!
24e Design Co. – 24e is a family-owned store run by Ruel Joyner, who is a 3rd generation Savannah native. The store bills itself as “The coolest store in Savannah” and earned those bragging rights by combining high-end furniture with a dash of funky art and very unique accessories. If you need assistance refining your style aesthetic or just want someone to redesign an entire room, they also offer design services. View some of their completed interior design projects here.

24e. DESIGN CO. is “The Coolest Store in Savannah”.
Leopold’s Ice Cream – Established in 1919, Leopold’s is truly a southern fixture and a great spot to beat the heat. Tourists and locals alike flock here to cool off with what’s been classified by Buzzfeed as the most popular ice cream in Georgia. It also made the cut as Travel + Leisure’s top spot for ice cream. It’s conveniently located next to SCAD’s movie theater. Location: 212 E. Broughton Street. Instagram: @leopoldsicecream
Leopold’s Ice Cream is probably one of the most Instagrammable spots in Savannah, but good luck capturing a pretty shot of your ice cream in front of the famous Leopold’s & SCAD signs before it melts! [Photo sources: 1, 2, 3, 4)
I don’t want to include too many photo galleries, so I’ll combine the rest into a single large one below. I may add more photos at a later date if I get requests! 🙂
Chocolat by Adam Turoni – The chocolates in this shop are displayed in glass cabinets and on antique silver trays, artfully stacked atop books on a dining room table. The Broughton Street store is their flagship store and is fashioned after a dining room setting, while their Bull Street location is modeled after a library setting. Each piece of chocolate is a tiny work of art in itself! If you don’t believe me, just take a peek at their Signature Chocolat Dark Chocolate Bar, the Savannah Honey Chocolate Bar, or the Almond Bark Angel Face Intaglios. The store was founded in 2010 by Adam Turoni when he was only 20 years old, and he was recently named one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in North America. Location: 321 W. Broughton Street.

Spartina 449 – If you’re a fan of Lilly Pulitzer, Kate Spade, or Draper James, you’ll more than likely enjoy the handbags, jewelry, and accessories found at Spartina 449. Think of Spartina as Kate and Lilly’s southern counterpart! Each collection in the store is reminiscent of a particular area of the Lowcountry and draws upon the colors and traditions of that area. Their flagship store is in Historic Old Town Bluffton. Location: 317 W. Broughton Street. Instagram: @spartina449
Here are a few more stores to check out while you’re on Broughton: Cardeologie (their signature line of distinctive greeting cards, dish towels, and totes are made in Savannah), Fabrik (stylish outfits with reasonable prices — but grab them while you can because they only order limited amounts in each size), Go Fish (cute and casual clothing for women and children, as well as reasonably priced jewelry), Nourish (the scent of natural bath products wafting out of this store is enough to draw you in), and Goorin Bros. (your friendly neighborhood hat shop).
In addition to the boutique stores, here are a few national retailers you can find on Broughton Street in Savannah:
