You will find some great stores for shopping in Savannah. The ones I liked include:
V & J Duncan: Stop in at their great shop carrying old engravings, botanical prints, photographs, books and maps. They are located at 12 East Taylor Street on Monterey Square. Your curator met owners John and his wife, Virginia, in 2011 in Lisbon so he enjoyed seeing them again. Mention that Bob sent you!!
ShopSCAD: Located at 340 Bull Street, this is a store featuring the work of the students, faculty and alumni artists of the Savannah College of Art and Design. This is a private college offering degrees in more than 40 majors and 50 minors in Savannah, Atlanta, Lacoste France and Hong Kong China.
Liquid Sands is an attractive glass gallery at 5 West York Street.
