Gena's Favorite Shops in Athens, Georgia

Athens, Georgia is full of unique, one-of-a-kind shops that make our town fun to explore. Here's a list of a few of my favorites: 


1059 Baxter St, Athens, GA 30606

Owned and operated by a dear friend of mine, Monkee's is a great place to find quality clothing for women of all ages. They have great pieces for every occasion. Take a look at the video I did with them last month!

Heery's Too!

184 E Clayton St, Athens, GA 30601

Located in the heart of downtown Athens, Heery's Too! is a delightful boutique that's been a part of Athens' shopping scene for years. The shop is an extension of the original Heery's, the clothing boutique, which has been an Athens staple for over 50 years. Heery's Too! is the place to go when you're looking for anything home decor, a great gift, or tasteful UGA memorabilia.

If you're in need of anything floral, there's no better place to visit than Brett Glenn Floral Design. Located at 1690 South Lumpkin Street, this floral boutique is a hidden gem in Athens. The talented team at Brett Glenn creates stunning floral arrangements and offers a range of unique and exquisite flowers. I use them for all of my floral needs, especially my closing gifts.

Appointments at Five

1730 S Lumpkin St, Athens, GA 30606

Located in Five Points, you'll find Appointments at Five. Since 1987, this shop has been an Athens tradition and staple in the community. It just came under new ownership, and I am excited to see how the new owner, Jarrett Kemp, puts her own spin on the place. The shop is known for its unique selection of antiques and gifts. Whether you're looking for a charming piece for your home or a unique gift for a friend, this boutique is a fantastic choice.
