A Local Gem

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is shop and scour my favorite hot spots for treasures.  I love discovering new stores in Atlanta in hopes they'll become my frequent destinations for gifts, home goods and clothes.  A couple weeks ago, a friend suggested I go check out Peridot Distinctive Gifts, a boutique in Buckhead that houses everything from a French Provincial chandeliers for your dining room to graphic beach totes for your next vacation.  This place has it all and each item is both unique and special. 

When I walked into the store, I was greeted by their very friendly staff and a room full of jewelry (high end and costume).  The next room was heavily merchandised with embroidered dish towels, heavenly scented candles and decorative items for the home.  I walked upstairs and found graphic beach cover-ups, beach totes, a heavy assortment of coffee table books, brightly colored graphic pillows and tons of items for the little one in your life. Whether you're looking for a gift for someone, or just need a little reward for yourself after a hard week, this is the place to go!  Of course I didn't leave empty handed - I bought a rustic lantern for my outdoor dining table and a shiny gold bangle, but wanted to buy much more.  I am already looking forward to another visit soon.  Happy shopping, fellow Atlantans!
