Downtown Roswell, GA can be described as a combination of hipster, quaint, and naturesque vibes. Roswell is about 25 miles north of the city of Atlanta. The cool thing about Atlanta is that there are tons of surrounding areas with hidden gems. There’s one street in particular where you can find these gems, and that is the infamous, Canton. St. Canton St. has retail stores, restaurants, and a sprinkle of random small businesses. Roswell isn’t too far from one of my previous Atlanta Life blog posts, American Girl Bistro, so be sure to check that one out too if you’re in the area with your daughter.
One of the small businesses was an apparel store named, TheBilt-House .
The store has clothing, shoes, and super cute accessories. What you might like most about the store besides the products, is the decor! It was almost as though I was sitting in someone’s living room, that I was jealous of, and that just happened to be selling things inside their home.
“If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle in the city of Atlanta, Roswell has great retail and restaurant options.”
Up the street was another personal favorite, Wild Oats & Billy Goats. Wild Oats & Billy Goats in Roswell, GA has custom art pieces, candles, and other home furnishings.
I was even able to snag one of their amazing candles for less than 10 bucks! Their candles are so powerful, you can smell them through the bag on the way home and they haven’t even been lit yet. These are from a handcrafted soy candle company,Uncommon Scents based out of Decatur, GA.
Also on Canton St. is a large Antique and Interior Furnishing Store This store is kind of like if Wayfair and Etsy were parents and had a retail baby that lived in Roswell, GA. Inside you will not only find antiques but tons of custom accessories for yourself and your home by local artisans.
Of course, after all of this walking around Roswell, we (my daughter and I) built up an appetite. So we stopped at Fix Pizzeria, home of the fried pizza.
The pizza was amazing, but what you really have to try are the ….DOUGHNUT HOLES!!
