You’ll Want To Return To Ocean Springs…And The Salmagundi Shop!!!!

Ocean Springs, Mississippi, has been a well kept secret for decades. And it’s a good thing that everyone has not yet found this small coastal city across the Bay from Biloxi. Just turning onto Washington Avenue makes me feel at home, even though, I’ve never lived there. It has that feel, that warmth, and then the lovely people you encounter just make you know you are welcome.
Last week, while Bob enjoyed golf in the area, I had the thrill of shopping in Ocean Springs. My first shop to draw me in is always the well known Salmagundi Shop, Inc. located at 922 Washington Avenue. The display windows are eye candy for sure. Then entering the door, and being greeted like you have just returned home, is such a welcome that can’t be better anywhere else. While visiting last week, I had the privilege of meeting Jeannie Stevenson, the owner, and I boldly asked if she would mind if I shared her shop via my blog to all of you. She was gracious and even helped me find the roosters, that had not photographed well on the exterior displays. I know many of us are enjoying roosters this year. Let me tell you that Jeannie’s shop has a great selection of ones, that were unique and unlike ones I had seen this year.
It’s WOW time again over at Kim’s, and I’m linking again to her fun time where we share our ideas and hints.
See y’all there. http://savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/
