SAVANNAH CANDY KITCHEN
Can you smell that? It is a once-in-a-lifetime smell. The type of smell that makes your taste buds water! It is an aroma that floods River Street, day in and day out. This delectable smell is accredited to pecan pralines, peanut brittle, popcorn, fudge, and many other southern delicacies that can be found in Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is a Savannah-born candy shop, located right on River Street, in the heart of historic Savannah. The Candy Kitchen opened its doors in 1979. Ever since then the Strickland family has shared their beloved family recipes and created a store that is famous across the country. The family has been in business for forty years, having been operated by three generations of Stricklands. It is one of those places that as soon as you get near it, you must go in. If you think that you will be able to leave without snatching some pecan pralines, think again. Savannah Candy Kitchen is a Savannah staple that you must try. Head towards river street and follow the aroma that draws everyone in!
Satchel is another Savannah-born shop. Satchel was established in 2006 by Elizabeth Seeger. Elizabeth opened her doors carrying retail items plus some custom-made leather goods. As the demand for custom items outweighed the demand for retail items, the store shifted and began only carrying handmade goods in their store. Satchel is now a hybrid store that is part studio, part store. They make and sell handmade leather goods right in their shop. They have a large online prescience that allows anyone to shop their items online as well as place a customized order. The items range from wallets, to travel bags, from purses to bracelets. The quality is top-level, and their leather goods are stylish and long-lasting. You can find them on the corner of Bull and Liberty Street in the heart of downtown Savannah!
