The Talk of the Town: Fayetteville’s Finest Shops
Posted: May 05, 2018 at 12:00 AM by Alan Tucker
There are many hidden gems in downtown Fayetteville. The shopping along with the great places to eat, make it a fun day of walking around no matter what your interests. There’s fun to be had even when one of the popular festivals are not happening.
Fabulous Finds Boutique: 310 Hay Street
This is a perfect little boutique nestled right in downtown. They have just recently moved from their Haymount location, into a loft right above Blue Moon Café. The new location looks amazing, and now has its own clothing line created by the owner Sid & Sam. If you are looking for something different that not everyone will be wearing, this is your place. They also carry fun accessories to include Lilly Pulitzer. Stop by and say hello to Sam.
Southern Alternative: 417 Hay Street
Another fun place to shop for fun clothes is Southern Alternative. It classifies itself as clothing and accessories for the free-spirited girl who has no style and fits not mold. They carry lots of fun t-shirts with sayings and you can even have one made that you have been wanting. Be sure to take a lot of time to look around, since there are things you don’t want to miss!
City Center Gallery and Books: 112 Hay Street
Maybe clothes shopping isn’t your thing, and you haven’t held a real book in your hand, for I don’t know a decade? Try visiting City Center Gallery and Books. It is a quaint bookstore that has a large selection of used books and beautiful local art. There are thousands of books in the store and they have access to used bookstores all over the country. If they don’t have what you are looking for, they will try to find it for you.
Greg’s Pottery: 122 Maxwell Street
Greg’s is a paint your own pottery place. You can tap into your creative side and paint your own, or buy something already completed. They offer a variety of get together options for anything event you can think of. They host a ladies’ night every first Saturday of the month, a monthly Pour, Paint and Party for $40, and children’s parties. You can drop in but would suggest making an appointment if you have a crowd.
Cotton Exchange: 226 Donaldson St.
This potpourri of sellers touts itself as having the best antiques, vintage items, collectibles and more. This is a large space rented to consignors of just about anything. If you are looking for a treasured gem that might be junk to someone else, but riches to you, this is the place to look. Plan to spend a good deal of time looking at all they have to offer.
Downtown Fayetteville can be a great place to spend an afternoon. The scenery is gorgeous and the shopping is even better.
