Shop fall home décor, fashions and local finds in some of Atlanta’s favorite Eastside neighborhoods. From Decatur to East Atlanta, here are 15 shops to have on your radar this fall.

  1. Right in the heart of downtown Decatur, Squash Blossom boutique is an eclectic women’s shop offering personalized style services, affordable prices and fashionable finds. Check out the Instagram page at @squashblossomboutique for wardrobe inspiration and to stay updated on the latest deals.

  2. While you’re in the area, pop into Sq/Ft for home goods, interiors and gifts. Find quirky items like a dachshund brass planter, camper cookie jars and Living Royal socks with the faces of presidents on them. There are clothing options for men and women with brands including Alternative, Mavi Jeans and Patagonia. This dog-friendly shop -- which has a vibe similar to the vibe at Urban Outfitters -- is situated next door to Cakes & Ale Cafe. Win, win!

  3. Bleu Hanger is a chic women’s boutique. Stop in for that perfect date night dress that you will find on a blue hanger, naturally. The fashions are on point and the prices are, too.

  4. Find a cute local gift from more than 100 creators and small, regional producers at HomeGrown. Before you leave with your new local treasures, sign your name on the 1950’s graffiti refrigerator.

  5. Pick up an inspiring coffee table book or stunning houseplant at Found Co. The shop specializes in unique and artful gifts for the home that are displayed in a serene environment.

  6. Shopping with little ones in tow? Take them over to Little Shop of Stories, which has recently expanded and is a great spot for birthday parties. Come here for a dose of educational fun ranging from inspirational children’s books and amazing storytelling to author events and other unique programming just for kids.

  7. Find modern heirloom quality clothes made of Peruvian pima cotton -- the finest quality cotton -- at Feather Baby. Next to Dancing Goats Coffee, this shop is dedicated to fair trade with small production quality. You may find the clothing at more than 500 boutiques around the country, but the flagship store is in Decatur.

  8. There’s another part of town that’s also a fan of Peruvian cotton. In Virginia-Highland, BlaBla Kids is the best spot to find earth-friendly, soft cotton toys, knitted by skilled artisans in Peru using this high-quality cotton. From Harmony The Mermaid to Socks The Fox, choose from a variety of colorful, unique dolls that make the perfect baby gift or birthday gift.

  9. Shop a wide assortment of home accessories and handmade furniture at Urban Cottage. Situated in a little cottage house on North Highland Avenue, it is the perfect place to stock up on unique gifts for others or treat yourself.

  10. Get ready for fall adventures and camping trips with gear from Half-Moon Outfitters. Find kayaks to take out on the river and sleeping bags for a star-lit overnight in the North Georgia mountains. All of your favorite outdoorsy brands are here, including Patagonia and The North Face.

  11. Just south of Little Five Points is The Beehive. Set within East Atlanta Village in Edgewood’s retail district, this gem recognizes and celebrates the works of local Georgia artists. Participate in one of the shop’s fall workshops, like sewing, and be on your way to becoming a busy bee yourself.

  12. Joining the area last year, So Worth Loving sells women’s clothing that promotes positive vibes and self confidence. Pick up an empowering “So worth loving” comfy shirt of your own to keep the good vibes flowing.

  13. In Glenwood Park, unplugged play awaits at Rhen’s Nest Toy Shop. This local toy store offers quality and creative toys that stimulate children’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth.

  14. Try on a New Selvedge Denim at Ponce City Market’s Elk Head Clothing. The jeans, which are available in three styles and woven in Milan, are not only stylish, but also comfortable.

    On the second floor of Ponce City Market, check out the new fall/winter 2017 collection at Abbey Glass. The beautiful collection of dresses and women’s wear is inspired by Marie Antoinette and features rich lace detailing, French tapestry prints and lush burnout velvet. This boutique offers a fresh spin on classic, tailored clothing for women.

    Ponce City Market is now offering gift cards that are good for any PCM store, dining destination and even at Skyline Park. Get a head start on holiday gift giving and pick one up at the gift card kiosk in denominations from $10 to $100.

    Combine shopping with leisure and hop on the Atlanta BeltLine for a stroll over to Krog Street Market where more shopping and unique dining await.
