We’re excited to welcome June and the bevy of new shopping opportunities it brings. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your home, your makeup drawer or you simply want to find the perfect gift for dear ol’ Dad, we have you covered with this month’s 12 Southern FINDS. Enjoy!
FOR THE HOME
The crown jewels
These gorgeous crown votives are both rustic and elegant, the ideal combination for an outdoor summer soirée tablescape! Find the small votive for $25 and the large votive for $45 at Garden District in Memphis.
If you’ve never been to Revival Home in Chattanooga, consider this your wake-up call. Located in the super-hip Warehouse Row, Revival Home is a trove of all kinds of treasures. Furniture, decor and everything in between can be found there, and each piece is more interesting than the next. Given that it’s summer travel season, we’re kind of smitten with this vintage suitcase collection — we bet this vellum luggage has some interesting travel tales to tell. Find it for $650 at Revival.
Pantone folding chair
We’ve already established that color’s making a comeback. And since Pantone is the ultimate authority in color trends, this chair just makes sense! Snag a piece of Pantone to bring home with a playful, colorful folding chair. Find this one and others for $65 each at A’Mano in Birmingham.
Music City gift ideas
Nashville is hotter than ever, with their Predators hockey team vying for the Stanley Cup, not to mention this weekend’s CMA Fest. Yes, “It City” is filled with plenty of fun activities, but more importantly, some amazing shopping. If you find yourself in Music City this month — or anytime — stop by the Music City Marketplace, where you can pick up an item or two to bring back home. Top local brands like Ceri Hoover, Consider the Wldflwrs, Nisolo, Olive & Sinclair and many more are represented in this tasteful space, and whatever you select, it will surely remind you of the one-of-a-kind experience you had on your Middle Tennessee vacation. Not planning to travel? Shop the marketplace online here.
Passport to Shopping
Speaking of Nashville shopping, ask any local and they’ll tell you that the Mall at Green Hills is one of the city’s top shopping destinations and is home to Jimmy Choo, Tiffany & Co., Kate Spade and Sephora, not to mention Nordstrom, Dillard’s and Macy’s. If you’re heading that way, enjoy an exclusive savings opportunity that’s only open to those outside of the 50-mile radius of the mall: the Passport to Shopping. The book is free, and the savings tremendous. The Mall at Green Hills is located at 2126 Abbott Martin Road, Nashville, TN 37215.
Give your skin some tender loving care with this healing and moisturizing lotion. What’s better is you will be left smelling like lavender. Snag a bottle for $18 online at Thistle Farms or wherever Thistle Farms products are sold.
Beeswax hand cream
Savannah Bee Company pays tribute to the almighty bee in each and every product they churn out, including their beeswax hand cream. The beeswax and royal jelly provide a nourishing protection for the skin, and the added oils and extracts provide softness. The peach scent? Well, that just plain smells good! Find the hand cream for $14.50 at the Savannah Bee website or at their Southern stores.
Poke-a-Dot cosmetic organizer
If you have yet to wrap up your spring cleaning, add this organizer to your shopping list! This product is designed to keep your cosmetics organized whether staying at home or on the go. Customize this product to fit your beauty needs! Find it for $45 at The Cosmetic Market, with locations throughout the South.
The Barbecue Master Gift Set
Step back … Dad’s cooking! It’s his day, so let him do his thing on the grill. Stoneware & Co.‘s Barbecue Master Gift Set includes a 16-inch round platter with a lipped edge ($98) to help keep food in place from grill to table as well as all of the other BBQ essentials to help make Dad’s world-famous BBQ – including a basting mop, designed with a mop-style cotton head and a stay-cool wooden handle that rests right on the sauce bowl’s rim, for $12.50, Feast Original BBQ Sauce for $7.50, BBQ tongs for $24 and a 4-ounce BBQ sauce bowl for $17. Buy them separately or as a bundle for $145.
Ribs on ribs on ribs
You don’t have to live in Memphis to enjoy the flavors of world-famous Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous — they can ship their delicious ribs to wherever Dad may be. The ribs come frozen, so all you have to do is re-heat them, and the box comes with Rendezvous’ world-famous barbecue sauce, seasoning, popcorn and preparation tips. Pick it up from Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous in downtown Memphis for $56, or go online and send your loved ones a taste of Memphis for $99 at Rendezvous’ online shop.
It’s officially boating season, and Louisville’s Water + Oak Outdoor Co. has just what every boater needs to hit the water with all the essentials: Yeti Tundra Coolers, starting at $679.99, YETI Hopper Sidekicks for $34.99, YETI Rambler for $39.99, YETI Rambler Colster for $29.99 and YETI Hopper Two Soft Cooler starting at $299.99.
Colonel Littleton portfolio
If Dad prefers a more downplayed approach, gift him a Colonel Littleton No. 18 portfolio from Mast General Store. The vintage leather-bound portfolio holds a notepad and offers ample interior storage with the large pocket and business card slot. Slide a handy writing utensil into the pencil sleeve, and he’s off to impress his co-workers, or have it monogrammed for a special touch. Find it for $150 at Mast General Store, with locations throughout the South, or online here.
Enjoy your June, and happy shopping!
