Last weekend Kev and I were in Blue Ridge, GA for Labor Day. We packed up Miley & Howie, met up with some friends, and stayed in a cozy cabin right on the Tennessee Georgia state line. They brought their golden cocker spaniel Charlie, and the pups all had a grand time running around their new digs.
On Saturday afternoon, after getting completely drenched from white water rafting the Ocoee River that morning, we were ready to explore the town! We wandered in bakeries, sampled some seriously delicious pastries, and yes, even tried a surprisingly yummy fried Oreo. :D There was a little fudge shoppe with the most incredible cookies & cream fudge I’ve ever had. I brought some home with me, and it’s already gone. *weeps* We stopped by the coolest farmer’s market and apple orchard and loaded up on tons of homemade jams, syrups, and dressings.
Just before dinner I was browsing through a little gift shop trying to decide between the Hawaiian Coconut or Strawberry Shortcake candle (Oh, who am I kidding, you know I totally got both. Please send help.) when my friend literally runs in, grabs me by the arm and says “You have to see this store!!!”
We ran next door, and check this place out!
We were whispering and giggling like college girls.
They had the cutest accessories.
Loved this watch!! So fun.
Good heavens, this little owl pin was TOO adorable! :)
Skinny jeans. Boots. Peasant top.
How cute is this cozy fleece caplet??
I can totally see myself in this necklace.
This purse was calling my name!
If you’re ever in the area, definitely stop by this seriously fabulous shop! At only and hour and a half from Atlanta and Chattanooga, it’s totally worth a trip.

Tell Matt & Millie we said hi! :D
We were just up in BR in June. I visited POSH and purchased an adorable PEACE necklace for my nine year old daughter. She wears it daily and it reminds me how much we love visting Blue Ridge and enjoying the mountains. It is beautiful there and the residents are so lovely.
I know the owners Millie and Matt personally from Posh. I had just moved to BR right when they opened and I was practically begging to just even be their servant girl b/c I loved their retail so much. She has an incredible eye for fashion. Just the way she decorates and arranges her little shop is so totally Posh. The chandeliers gave it just the perfect touch. While business could have slowed up during those cold winter months with less visitors they have done really well for themselves because they brought in something so unique fashion cool …. you could get almost anyone a unique little piece there. She is starting to get in more clothes too. She got these amazing jeans in that are almost exactly like the miss me brand but half the price. The store rocks. And you will have such a fun experience browsing and drooling at everything, And you do suddenly find yourself like a kid again with all the sparkle and glam!!!!! Love it. Live it Go to it!!! ;) (you think I am obsessed much)
We were actually there a few days ago and I fell in love with this shop! We also went to Paula’s consignment boutique(apparently a new location) and plan on going back to both…and the many many many surronding places that caught our eyes.
I’ve been to that store!!!
Loved every piece. Great blog post.
If you follow my blog I’ll follow yours!!!
oh my goodness! i’d give my eye tooth to go to this store! i have a watch similar to that, only now it’s a beautiful bangle bracelet. (mine has a round face and is pastel colors) it wasn’t working so i popped the watch parts out and replaced it with a picture of my grandson. thinking i’ll take that out in put in crystals.
I want one of everything, please!!! I love this shop too bad I am in Texas!!!!
Mercier is one of our must stop places when we visit the North Georgia Mountains in the fall. Hope that you tried one of their fried apple pies, apple cider doughnuts, or fresh cider.
You have an amazing eye for all things lovely. Thanks for sharing!
I adore Posh! Millie and Matt are awesome.. It has become my daughter’s and my favorite shop in Blue Ridge!! Everything is so fabulous and I can’t believe the prices!! Yes! you CAN touch them!! LOL!! I hate to go into a great shop and when I reach out to look at the price tag it BURNS MY HAND!!!! you know the ones I mean!!! Not at Posh my friend! I am totally excited to tell people about my favorite shop! Milie!, Matt! keep up the awesome work! -Carrielee
Wow, that place looks amazing! Good finds!
I just added you to my bloglist. Anyone who will take pics of purses in stores is my kind of girl, lol.
what a great store! I’d love to get my hands on wings like that LOL
Such a cute shop! I absolutely love the purses with the ruffles!
We recently took a day trip to Blue Ridge (about an hour from us). My Mom and I stumbled upon POSH and discovered it was only their 2nd day open. We loved it! Love the way the jewelry, etc was displayed…all very whimsical…and we both bought some really pretty jewelry. The owner was very friendly and we enjoyed chatting with her. I expect this shop will be around for a long….lovely!
What is the name of the fudge shop you stopped at? The link goes to a stone jewelry store.
That’s the place! :) They had a little bit of everything. Jewelry, purses, candles, soaps, jams & jellies, quilts, t-shirts… But the best was the fudge! :)
OMG I literally was just telling my husband that we needed to go to Mercier Orchards (i was reading about it in my magazine!). How was it?? I cant wait to go!
what a find!!
i will have to keep this in mind
I LOOOVE the owl pen! I am from Georgia myself, but was recently transplanted to Virginia. I definitely miss it! Thank you for sharing.
I just moved to the Alpharetta/Cumming area a couple of months ago, so I am very happy to see this stuff. We are always looking for things to explore and I think a trip to the apple orchard this fall and some shopping will be very good for the soul!!
Thanks for the super fun post!
In the very first photo my eyes were drawn to the leather flower bag. OH EM GEEEE….so cute!! They have some awesome stuff.
That store looks fabulous! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
But I had to giggle when I saw the feathers sticking out of the table top mannequin display. All I could think was, “Dang, she sure has some hairy armpits!” *snort*
Yes, I’m 12. ;)
Glad you had a great trip! I love your adventures! In fact, I’m taking my daughter to NYC for her 16th birthday next weekend and we’re going to go to some of the stores you visited! *squee*
You did find Posh! This is such a happy post & very beautiful store. Gorgeous photos. Looks like the perfect place to score some great accessories & yummy candles. I bet that fried Oreo was delish!

Loved loved loved the photos . One of my favorite kind of shoots . I love to go to flea markets and little boutiques because the displays make such interesting photo’s!!! I never get tired of it .
Beautiful pieces. I would/ could walk around in that store for hours!! I really like the purse with the big rosettes. And the owl pin is adorable. Sounds like you had a great Labor Day.
Wow – right up my alley – – love love love that shop! thanks for sharing.
I love it when you find little treasure shops like that in spots where you least expect it! So many great items! Love the pictures!
I am from a little town outside of Atlanta. They use to have shops like that at Underground Atlanta. I haven’t been there in so long. I haven’t lived in Ga since I got married. Thats what you get for marrying some one in the military. But at least I live 15 mins from the beach. Since you are a big candle lover. You should try Scentsy. Its cheaper then candles,they last longer,you can get a warmer to match you decor in any room. They even have plug ins. The wax is made out of Paraffin wax. So it doesn’t get that hot. You can stick your fingers in the wax while its melted and it won’t burn you. The wax is reusable. We even have a recipe book. You can mix the scented wax with what ever the recipe calls for( only scented wax)and it really does smell like the recipe’s name is. I have done the recipe for sweet tea. OMG my house smelt like sweet tea but the scented wax it said to use didn’t smell nothing like sweet tea. LOL Check out the site http://brandyhill.scentsy.us . I use to be a candle lover. I would spend loads of money on candles. HAHAHA You should see the ceiling in my living room. Its black from where the candles was burning. It started turning all my dishes black. Since I quit using candles and went to scentsy I don’t have that problem. And I save money. A bar is 5.00 and it last over 80 hours. I have high rise ceiling in my living room. I have no idea how I am going to get up there and clean that thing. LOL
So pretty!! At first glance I thought it was a Brighton store. Wish we had something like that around here…so cute. I agree that silver/blue necklace on the mirror was FABULOUS!!!
Oooo, your pictures are gorgeous and I would have gone NUTS in that shop!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE that kind of stuff!!!!
wow, totally love the jewelry! i really like the blue rose one and i agree it would look great on you!!! :) i love the mirror it was displayed on as well, nice shot by the way.
I LOVE BLUERIDGE!!! The rentable cabins are so cute, cozy, and afordable! My Soldier and I took out chow chow up there during winter and she refused to stay inside. Just wanted to lay on the porch overlooking the mountains. I am so glad you got to see such a beautiful area in Georgia! My husband and I desperately wanted to buy a cabin after we left there. Did you see the Gnarly Bear store with all the Hatley stuff? SO cute!!!
*our* chow chow ; )
