In Georgia's capital, local artisans are
having a moment.
These gifts showcase the city's rich Southern heritage−but
with a cool modern edge.
Long after you depart from Atlanta, you'll still have
Georgia on your mind.
From pickled produce to hip T-shirts, here are a few
locally made souvenirs you're sure to find downright peachy.
Mama Bath + Body Neighborhood Soaps Lather up with these scented soaps
honoring Atlanta's most recognizable neighborhoods, including Inman Park,
Virginia-Highland, and Midtown.
You'll notice hints of lavender in the soap
for the toney Buckhead neighborhood, and there's no mistaking the patchouli
in the one for earthy Little Five Points.
Made by Atlanta-based Mama Bath +
Body, they're available at the company's retail locations in Krog Street
Market and Avondale Estates.
$9 Preserving Place Pickled Peaches At
Preserving Place in the Westside Provisions district, Atlanta's canning
queen Martha McMillin teaches classes on the time-honored Southern tradition
of preserving local produce.
Take home her mother's specialty: a jar of
pickled peaches flavored with vinegar, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves.
Modern Tribe Atlanta Streetcar T-shirt From its retail store along the
Atlanta Streetcar line, Modern Tribe caters to Atlanta's large Jewish
population with hip Jewish and Judaica gifts.
Its commemorative T-shirt
depicts Atlanta's new trolley (bearing the words "Shalom, Y'all"),
plus the landmark Auburn Avenue street sign and historic Big Bethel AME
Church's spire.
The Collective Atlanta Landmark Coasters These vintage-looking coasters
showcase some of the Atlanta area's best-known landmarks, from The Righteous
Room to the Big Chicken to Clermont Lounge.
Find them at The Collective, a
co-op located in a restored bungalow at Krog Street Market. $12 Beautiful
Briny Sea Santa Salt Just in time for Christmas, this specialty Santa Salt
adds a playful kick to holiday meals.
A combination of rosemary salt and pink
peppercorn salt, it's made with local herbs in Atlanta's historic Grant
Park neighborhood by Beautiful Briny Sea.
$8 CACAO Atlanta Chocolate
Company Limited-Edition Chocolate With three Atlanta locations (plus a
fourth set to open soon), CACAO Atlanta Chocolate Company is building a
bean-to-bar empire in its namesake city.
Its gleaming stores offer everything
from single-origin chocolate bars to locally made truffles; take home a
limited-edition bar encased in a wrapper designed by abstract art studio NG
Collective (pictured; call for price).
