Georgetown, South Carolina

When envisioning a small southern coastal town rich with history, I see a main street lined with eclectic locally owned shops; a historic neighborhood with tree lined streets housing Colonials, Victorians, and Greek Revivals; and last but not least, simply good folk welcoming you to their sweet and charming town.

Georgetown was picture perfect!

 Goudelock & Co. was one of my favorite stores to peruse.  It’s an adorable place that houses the work of local artisans:

These artisans, Gail Lunn & Whitney Hewitt, owners of Shades of Green re-purpose other people’s junk into beautiful bases for their lamps, hence the Green in their name.

I love how you can place anything you’d like in the middle of this lamp.

It was tough to choose a favorite, but I think this one is mine!  The base is gorgeous!

I like the combo of the base with the shade:

Another beauty…

I love the base on this one…

Gail and Whitney were so sweet in sharing town history and must see places.  Plus, since Big Tuna was closed, they gave us a recommendation to a restaurant, Bistro 217, in Pawleys Island that was out of this world!!  Thanks for making our visit so special, ladies!

Last, I must share with you some of the beautiful homes we saw in historic downtown.  We truly were gawking at home after home after home.

Many of the homes had a circa plaque next to the door so it was fun seeing how old they were.

Here’s one for sale (found on that claims to be possibly the oldest house in the historic district, circa 1734.  I remember seeing this place for sale but didn’t take a picture of it.

See what I mean about the gawking…

Adorable bench…

Love the porches on this one:

Here’s a home that’s been featured in Southern Living apparently a few times.  I can see why!

Interior shot of the Southern Living home.  Love those floors:

Again, another adorable home!

If you ever find yourself in South Carolina, you must visit Georgetown. You’ll absolutely love it!  If you’re interested, here’s a little history of the town and a directory of many of the shops.

Designed on Sunshine - It’s incredibly different than California so it was such a treat to visit a charming southern town on the other coast!

Woman in the Garden - Wow! Looks like an amazing vacation. I love the South and all of its beauty and charm. It’s always wonderful to see things from someone else’s point of view!
