Holiday Shopping in the North Georgia Mountains

This year, why not tackle your holiday list up here in the mountains? We have a delightful collection of one-of-a-kind stores where you can shop for everyone on your list. Below are a just few of the many options.

The town of Helen looks like old St. Nick himself would be roaming the streets, so what better place to head for shopping! At Hansel & Gretel Candy Kitchen, homemade goodies abound—rich almond butter toffee, cherries hand-dipped in chocolate, caramel pecan turtles and decadent truffles, just to mention a few.

8651 N. Main Street, Helen


Aromas of another sort can be found at Helen Souvenir and Candle Company, which offers locally made and hand-carved candles in a wide range of sizes. And if you want a custom candle, you can watch as they make it right here in the store.

Tim’s Wooden Toys is like Santa’s own workshop. Every toy in the store is made here, and the selection is awesome. Push and pull toys, trucks, trains, crossbows, and more, as well as art sets, and games. It’s hard not to feel like a kid again!

For a special handmade treasure, stop by Southern Comfort Quilts where you’ll find a large and beautiful selection, each one unique. Also for sale: quilted throws, handbags and tabletop items.

On the way back to the Inn, swing by The Lavender Cottage & Garden in Sautee. The shop’s herbal goodies include bath and beauty products made from organic, natural ingredients as well as lovely artisan goods.
