Where To Up Your Souvenir Game In ATL
It’s undeniable that Atlanta is King (and Queen) of the South. Home of the world’s busiest airport, Coca-Cola and some of the world’s dopest rappers, Atlanta has to be on your list of places to visit.
Many dream of visiting or moving to the hub of the Southern region. Even if you haven’t been here — you know all about it. You probably can’t hit any major U.S. city without hearing Atlanta slang or seeing Atlanta gear, whether it’s just to represent the city or in support of one of our many sports teams (Go Hawks!).
It’s time to get fly and up your souvenir game. Bring back something cool to commemorate your trip. If you live here, rep your city. There are several stores where you can find unique items to show your love for The A.
Check out some of my favorites:
Alexis (Lexi) Felder is an influencer and digital marketer for a media company in Atlanta. She enjoys exploring local neighborhoods, vintage shopping, and trying new restaurants.

Crafted Westside is a cool, quirky store on the Westside that houses items from a collective of local designers and artisans. Recently, this has been one of my favorite sides of town.
You can find ATL etched glassware, fun flasks engraved with “Dirty South” or koozies for the alcohol enthusiast in your life. You can even find ATL pillows to spruce up your couch. Really, there is an endless variety of Atlanta items in this store. The brand Old Dirty Type sells Atlanta-based art and also focuses on various areas like the popular neighborhood, Virginia-Highland. Whatever you’re looking for, chances are you will find something super unique in this space.

Citizen Supply at Ponce City Market has all of the Atlanta gear you need. They’ve connected local brands with residents and visitors since 2015. This curated market sells items from several makers around the city that includes clothing, accessories and home goods. They have a collection for you to show off your Atlanta pride or take home as a gift. They sell everything from shirts, pins, prints, keychains and more with Atlanta backdrops and sayings. I have my eye on the Glad & Young plane keychain so I can rep my adopted home while I am traveling.

The Beehive is a community-based boutique that sells merchandise from local designers of diverse backgrounds. You can find everything from jewelry and apparel to homegoods and teas. They focus on the local entrepreneur and the boutique is owned and operated by local makers. The Beehive has several designers and artisans that sell Atlanta items. You can purchase cufflinks with the city’s coordinates, adorable peach-covered onesies for babies and LGBTQ Atlanta items. This store is comprehensive and I love that they also sell local food items as well.
Catch them around their bi-annual warehouse sales for extreme discounts. Also, look out for their classes so you, too, can be a maker.
