With a brick-laden Broad Street, street lamps afire and a 300-year-old oak tree the size of a city block, the plantation town of Thomasville, Georgia is lost in a world of which we all reminisce.
One of my very favorite places to visit, there are so many things in The City of Roses that you just simply cannot miss, all housed in the charmingly historic downtown buildings of Thomasville.
The oh-so-fabulous gourmet goodie shop Relish is filled with everything to keep a foodie happy and the most fantastic screen door that makes you feel like you’re coming home. Kevin’s is a must-stop for the beau, a beautiful outdoor shop with all things a plantation owner, or one with fabulous taste, must have.
There are many wonderful antique stores to peruse, all worth checking out. My personal favorite is Relics, as there is always something you’ve never seen before and a good bit of architectural pieces. My first visit here was met with the owner snapping fresh green beans into a bucket – how could I not fall in love?
Another thing I adore about Thomasville is their heirloom markers of history. Each of the downtown stores has one posted outside noting the original date of construction and business type that once graced the land – I love the nostalgia.
As for eats, you can’t miss George & Louie’s for some true southern seafood, and on Broad is supposedly the worlds best chili dog (though I don’t speak from experience, I’ve heard it to be true).
Like all heirloom towns, this one comes stocked with the quaintest of barber, coffee, book & bath shops, not to mention a fabric & bedding store; a dapper men’s shop and Firefly (great for kids + unique accessory finds).
As for “to-do’s” – the Museum of History is a must to learn all stories of the local plantations, and to experience one first-hand I adore Pebble Hill and their gorgeous property & cemetery. If you’re going, Springtime is just grand and you can catch the annual Rose Festival in late April or the take-you-back decorations if visiting over the Christmas holidays. And, of course, find the Big Oak for a photo opp you’ll want to treasure.
My only warning is the strong desire you’ll feel to move to Thomasville upon visiting. Do go, to enjoy & do share with us your favorite heirloom moments in the Rose City!

Located in the preserved & bustling Virginia-Highlands neighborhood in Atlanta, we are excited to have Urban Cottage as our newest Gourmet Retailer of IceMilk Aprons.
Housed in a fabulously quaint cottage set just off the road, Urban Cottage has a myriad of wonderful items, both large & small. Their beautiful furniture is all custom and can be tailored to your every whim – a gorgeous tufted ottoman caught my eye immediately.
You’ll be quick to notice a fabulous selection of carefully chosen books – from cookbooks to home to wedding to idea inspiration – all urging you to flip through. One of my favorite finds was pinched pottery from a local potter in Cabbagetown, with a rustic finish and done in fabulous neutrals. Mother & daughter Silverstein team own this glorious shop, along with the beautifully designed Breathless Paper Co. well worth taking a peek.
We are thrilled to be in the treasure-filled Urban Cottage and excited to have them as a partner – hope you’ll stop in for a visit!
The gourmet line of artful foods, founded by the delightfully engaging Alisa Barry, has a perfectly-packaged and savory experience that cannot be missed. The flagship store is located in the oh-so-charming neighborhood of Virginia-Highlands in Atlanta, however their distribution does not stop there. From the nooks & crannies of fabulously unique gourmet retail stores, to gift stores, to the superior Henry Bendel, Bella Cucina has certainly made a place for themselves and has quite a following of foodies around the globe.
The Italian gem of a store is so perfectly appointed that it may possibly be the perfect home for IceMilk Aprons to be showcased. The pictures speak for themselves but the design is simple, rustic elegance to the max, with dreamy oversized fabric shades hanging from the ceilings and gourmet goodies scattered amidst garden-fresh veggies and worn wooden fixtures. Delish.
Our line of gourmet heirloom aprons debuted in the Bella Cucina store this August for their weekly Artisan Thursday event, another can’t-miss-moment when experiencing Bella Cucina.
We at IceMilk Aprons are so very thrilled to be involved with this timeless brand, honoring the luxury of food and recalling recipes of generations past. A special thank you and warm welcome to Alisa & her team as we embrace them as another wonderful Gourmet Retailer showcasing the IceMilk Apron line!

We couldn’t be more excited to be in the Atlanta area, and I knew the moment I walked in the door that new store Ivy & Twine was the ideal shop for us to plant our roots. With a wonderful array of antique pieces, fresh potted herbs, unique jewelry pieces and simply fabulous entertaining pieces (my very favorite being burlap pillows and table runners), Terri and Trisha have simply been a joy to work with. You can surely see their passion and creativity shine through in each of their pieces.
The shop is located near the charming Marietta Town Square area, which boasts several restaurants, an old theatre, wonderful museums & antique stores and the Gone with the Wind musuem among many other wonderful treasures that makes for a worthwhile visit. And Ivy & Twine is also located just next door to a wonderful bakery owned by Paula Deen’s cousin!
I do hope you’ll stop in for a visit!
