Tell Me About Your Town: Favorite Shops & Boutiques

It's time for another Tell Me About Your Town! This month's prompt is "Favorite Shops and Boutiques." Columbia is full of great little places, and these are some of my favorites!

Fretboard Coffee. Call me hipster, but this place is awesome. Fretboard is a family-owned coffee roasting business, first established in Brooklyn, New York in 2009. They are known for their pour-over coffee and on certain days of the week they sell donuts from one of the best places in town.


Poppy Arts. Poppy is a sweet little shop right on the main street in our town. Poppy is a handmade gift destination for locals and visitors alike.  The large collection of carefully hand selected merchandise features jewelry, home decor, paper goods and even something for babies and children. It's one of the best little shops to browse on a stroll downtown.

Boone Olive Oil. Boone Olive Oil carries oils from around the world. This place is HUGE and it has something for everyone. This makes the perfect gift for people who like to cook!

  6. We have an olive oil shop in our town too - it's called Pinch & Pour. I never knew olive oil was such a big thing it warranted a store ONLY for it! Cray cray! But I definitely love those cute little gift shops with jewelry, cards and home stuff.

  7. I want to visit Poppy Arts!!!! I had asked you if The Artisan was still there. It was totally a hipster coffee shop and I loved it! So cozy, amazing staff. I just loved it!
    Is Britches still there? It was a boutique but as I was in my last year, it started to turn more club skankish than cute and trendy styles :/
