Welcome to September, friends. It’s hard to believe that we’re embarking on a change of seasons, but the impending arrival of fall brings with it a bevy of new FINDS. Take a look at these items that caught our eye from some of our favorite Southern brands and boutiques.
FASHION & ACCESSORIES
Although our social calendar isn’t exactly full, we are still hunting for fashion items to add to our fall collection. First on the list: Sierra pumps from Able for $148. It is hard to beat a two-inch heel and such a stylish design. The only hard part is deciding between the caramel and bone croco colors — good luck. Shop online or in the Able storefront in the Nations.
Any good Southerner knows that certain Southern cities just have a proper pronunciation. Take Atlanta, for example. Drop the second “t,” give it a Southern drawl, and you get “Atlannah.” It sort of conjures images of Steel Magnolias, doesn’t it? Find your t-shirt — available in his and hers — at Citizen Supply (in Atlannuh’s Ponce City Market) or online HERE for $36. (Sweatshirts are also available for $65.)
Transition effortlessly into the fall season with this classic leather bag. Keep everything organized with its drawstring closure and interior pockets for everyday wear (and when you’re comfortable to travel again, this will be fabulous!). Find this crossbody bag for $375 at J. Lowery.
Dwell & Good face masks
Who would have thought that the hottest fashion trend of 2020 would be a face mask? Not us. But if we’re going to wear them, we might as well make them cute! These SB exclusive masks are currently available for pre-sale and will ship out in approximately two to three weeks. Find this “Be Kind Do Good” mask and three other designs for $19.50 at SB Shop.

Division Circle keyring
This simple-yet-statement-making keyring comes from Nashville-based ELT Collective. The sturdy solid brass ring features a screw closure for easy-on-easy-off maneuvering of keys. The leather, made of full-grain Italian cow leather, makes good use of ELT’s scraps. Find these keyrings for $25 each HERE.
CBD skin balm
Handwashing has its obvious benefits, but it can leave your hands dry and cracked. Give them much-needed love with a beeswax, CBD and eucalyptus oil skin balm by Also Organics. The balm projects dry and sensitive skin for lips, face, hands and body, helping heal sun damage. The balm is sold online for $69.99.
Jane Iredale POMMISST Hydrating Spray
When you need a little pick-me-up, reach for this POMMISST Hydrating Spray. Made of natural and organic ingredients, this spritzer includes pomegranate extract, which acts as an antioxidant, and use it to set your foundation and conceal pores and fine lines. Find it for $33 at Woo Skincare + Cosmetics locations in Nashville and Atlanta, or online HERE.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Mexican hot chocolate
We may have a bit more time before the temperatures truly start to dip, but you can still get into the fall mood with a cup of delicious hot chocolate. Sourced from Oaxaca, Mexico, this Villa Real chocolate is smooth, creamy and absolutely decadent. Choose between almond, vanilla or sweet dark, and kick back with your favorite mug as you watch the leaves turn. Find it for $12.99 at Sojourns Fair Trade.
Apple pie filling
Nothing says fall like a fresh, homemade apple pie. Locally sourced and handcrafted in Alabama, this apple pie filling is perfectly spiced and sinfully delicious. It will be your go-to recipe for all your fall celebrations! Find this 32-ounce jar for $20 at Stone Hollow Farmstead.
FOR THE HOME
Lost Spring: How We Cocktailed Through Crisis
Nashville bartender Mike Wolf made the most of his spring quarantine by penning his second book, Lost Spring: How We Cocktailed Through Crisis. Within the pages, Mike discusses the reality of navigating the Nashville tornadoes in March (which killed two local bartenders) immediately followed by the pandemic. Additionally, he taps into his well-connected mixology network to curate a tasty list of cocktail recipes for readers to try at home. Released just last week as an e-book and available in print next May, Lost Spring showcases top-name talent from Nashville as well as Atlanta, Charleston, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Learn more about this new release, available for $6.99, HERE.
Periodic Table of Louisville platter
Anyone with a Louisville connection will appreciate this Periodic Table of Louisville platter. Featuring symbols of all the things for which Louisville is known, this piece would look great as home decor or put to good use. Look for the fleur de lis, the hot brown, the Belle of Louisville, the Big Four Bridge, and so many more. Find it for $78 at Louisville’s KMAC Museum or online HERE.
Handmade ceramic mug
Is having too many mugs really a thing? We think not! This ceramic beauty is handmade with a satin glaze, which makes it feel good to simply hold. Find this mug for $44 at Paper & Clay (and be on the lookout for their new South Main retail store in Memphis opening in December).
Wood bowl & spoons
This attractive spice bowl is carved in Kenya from wild olive wood. A sustainable product, this piece is both decorative and useful. Measuring 4 inches long, this set is ideal for serving salt and pepper — or any other spice duo — at your next gathering. Find it at SustainAble Home in Atlanta or online HERE for $20.
Let’s be honest, we’re all looking forward to 2021. Gift your friend, loved one or co-worker this new calendar by Karen Adams Designs.
