Nestled in the heart of City Market, Twinkle stands apart as one of downtown Savannah’s most inviting boutiques.
Twinkle originally opened in 2004 and has been owned by Joa and Jessica Kelly, a husband-and-wife team, for the past 16 years.
“Twinkle is an artsy, fun, affordable accessories shop,” says Jessica Kelly. “We specialize in stylish, affordable, high-quality merchandise — and we are the ideal place to get completely accessorized. We have a beautiful collection of jewelry, purses and fashion accessories with an emphasis on fun! We’re open every day, and always have great sales and specials. Please stop by the shop to see our newest selection of trendy, fashion-forward accessories.”
Popular items for winter include beautiful ponchos, scarves, hats and gloves that are perfect for a cozy carriage ride. This colorful boutique carries collectible mermaid paintings and prints by renowned Savannah artist Albert Seidl, and a stunning line of recycled guitar string jewelry, with proceeds benefiting retired musicians who need medical services.
“We seek out handmade items from local and national artists and try to be the sole representative of that line in Savannah,” Jessica explains. “We have an incredible selection of high-quality leather goods.”
The festive window décor and colorful merchandise beckons visitors in through the door.
The fresh smell of leather lingers in the air and invites them to stay for a while. This popular boutique carries unique items with whimsy and artistic flair in a rainbow of colors. Plus, stylish RFID leather wallets — with special EMI/RFI shielding to protect valuable credit card info — are a specialty at Twinkle.
Additional highlights include recycled Indian sari beads, made into stunning earrings and bracelets, more than 60 styles of cross-body and travel bags, funky sunglasses and designer-inspired fashion watches. Leather bracelets, tassel earrings, snakeskin jewelry and a wide selection of gift items are available year-round.
