Carriage House Shop
Located in the carriage house of Mercer House, as featured in John Berendt's book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Mercer House Carriage Shop offers a pleasant shopping environment as well as a chance to get close to the famous house. With a classy collection of gifts, home accessories, books, stationery and antiques, the shop is sure to offer visitors something they cannot resist. Mercer House and the Mercer House Carriage shop are owned by the sister of the late Jim Williams, who was also immortalized by Berendt's famous novel.
This is a wonderful little shop and one of those gems you find in cities like Savannah -a little bit of the old, a little bit of the new. An ecclectic mix of new and antique items ranging from books to pyjamas, soaps and dishes as well as a kids' section is sure to delight any shopper.
My advice, though, is to visit the shop instead of the Mercer house itself - the tour is debilitatingly boring and only the ground floor is available to view. Save your money for something unique in the shop instead!
