The Starland District is easily one of the most eclectic neighborhoods in Savannah, so it only makes sense that it’s where you’ll find some of the most unique shopping opportunities!

Since I live in the area and consider Starland my home turf, I thought I’d share some of the creative stores that make the area worth the 30 to 40-minute walk from the Historic District.

Shops in Savannah’s Starland District

If you’re looking for the best time to go shopping in the Starland District, First Fridays is a monthly event that celebrates local small businesses in the Starland area.

Many of the shops stay open late and serve refreshments, and you can walk from business to business to check out local vendors and support emerging artists.

If you can’t make it to a First Friday event, most of stores listed below consistently stay open Thursdays – Sundays. As always, please double check store hours before heading out.


Oddities Shops

Did I mention the Starland District is an eccentric area? Because it is!

Let’s start this list off with a couple fun oddities shops…


Graveface Records

Graveface | 5 W 40th Street, Savannah, Georgia 31401
Show Support: The owners, Ryan and Chloe, are just awesome people.
Hours: Mon – Thur from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. | Fri 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. | Sat 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. | Sun 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Facebook: Graveface Records

Graveface is record store, so it’s a great place to shop for old vinyl.

It’s so much more than that, though!

It’s easily one of the quirkiest shops in the Starland District.

The store is filled with old records, cassette tapes, and music memorabilia, but they also offer goofy taxidermy (flippant squirrels, for example), potions, and other oddities.

Check out their Etsy shop to get an idea of some of the items they carry.

Trust me, you have to visit at least once just to check the place out!

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because they also own Graveface Museum, which is a popular stop along Factors Walk in the Historic District.

An African Movies poster hangs inside Graveface Records with images of a woman who has snakes for hair, a man with knives sticking out of his body, and another woman with a bird head. The movie title reads "Married to a Witch"

Starland Strange is such a quirky little shop! It’s filled with oddities perfect for showing off your love for the Starland District.

Looking for a Starland District bumper sticker, t-shirt, or trucker hat? They’ve got ’em!

The store also offers handmade gifts from local artists, and they have a fantastic sticker collection that includes quotes, cheeky messages, and images of popular icons like Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.

They also have a good selection of vintage and funky clothing, as well as screen-printed t-shirts.

For a fee, Starland Strange also offers a one-of-a-kind shopping experience.

They provide glasses of champagne and styling advice based around items hand-selected in the store, and then they’ll take you on a photo shoot to a few select destinations in the Starland District.

It’s a popular activity with bachelorette parties and the Instagram crowd (and I admit I have fun watching the procession from my hairstylist’s studio, which is located across the street).

Are you beginning to sense they do it all? That’s because they offer a little bit of everything.

If you’re hungry, you can even grab a few scoops of gourmet ice cream to enjoy in the cute seating area out back.

Make note that they’re closed on Mondays.

It’s one of my favorite places to snag hand-drawn maps and sketches of some Savannah’s must-see landmarks, like the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist.

If you just want a chill place to relax, they serve vegan drinks and have a few small seating areas both indoors and outside. They offer a nice selection of kombucha, herbal teas, craft sodas, and more.

For those of you who don’t want to wait in the long line at Leopold’s busy Historic District location, the soda shop is a great place to sample some of their most popular flavors.

Art Galleries & Supplies

It only makes sense that an area known as the Starland Arts District would have art galleries and art supply stores, right?

Here are a few top options to get you started…

Starlandia Art Supply

Starlandia | 2438 Bull Street, Savannah, Georgia 3401
Show Support: This is an LGBTQ-owned and environmentally friendly small Savannah business!

If you haven’t guessed by now, the Starland District is a place where artists thrive, and Starlandia is a one-of-a-kind art store that sells new and reclaimed art supplies.

Since there are so many SCAD students in Savannah who often need specific art supplies for one semester only, Starlandia is helping to lesson the school’s environmental impact by providing a place for students to resell gently used items.

Think of them as a thrift store for creative items!

Their motto is: “Make Art, Stay Thrifty, Save the World”

They have a wide selection of paint, markers, canvas, paper, chalk, frames, and more, and it’s all located inside one colorful, happy store.

If you follow their social media channels, sometimes you can luck out and find incredible last-minute sales and giveaways.
