The Huntsville Shopping Guide
Huntsville, Alabama has so many wonderful local shopping options. From boutiques and gifts to interiors and jewelry, the local shopping scene is chock-full of options. In this shopping guide, Dawn and her editorial team share what shops they love and some personal tips for what not to miss!
Carriage House (115 Johnston Street Southeast, Decatur)
Aissa shares that at Carriage House you can find styles and brands that you would otherwise have to travel for.
Marigail’s (1631 Darby Drive, Florence)
Timeless and ageless options abound. Mother and daughter can shop here and both find styles they love!
Monkee’s of Huntsville (933 Bob Wallace Avenue Southwest, Huntsville)
Dawn says that Monkees feels like walking into the closet of your dreams: beautiful light pink and gold decor set the tone for an upscale shopping experience.
Personal Couture (102 Longwood Drive Southeast, Huntsville)
We love it all at PC, and we particularly love the shoe offering. Pro tip: sign up for her emails and get first look at what is being unpacked and racked that day!
Kathleen’s Bridal (14 Main Street, Madison)
Fun, fresh gown styles for the bride and bridal party. We love that Kathleen’s is size-inclusive for all brides. Pro tip: shopping is by appointment!
Southern General (101 North Main Street, Arab)
Southern General offers cool, comfortable, relaxed shirts, hats and accessories that fit in well in North Alabama and are complemented by some of the funniest and punniest gifts, accessories, beer and wine. SG is the place to shop for the Alabama guy’s Christmas stocking of his dreams!
Roosevelt & Co. (114 Clinton Avenue East #102, Huntsville)
Dawn credits Roosevelt & Co. with single-handedly upping the look of Mr. Scout Guide Huntsville, David. From custom suiting to designer off-the-rack styles, shoes and accessories, R&Co. is the go-to for men’s fashion.
In BeTween (2124 Cecil Ashburn Drive Southeast, Suite 120, Huntsville)
This is THE place to find cool, stylish and age-appropriate tween fashion. Dawn says that if your tween likes soft, squishy, colorful, blingy, sweet-smelling stuff, this is a great stop for gifts and presents as well as clothing.
Little Cotton Shoppe (964 Airport Road, Suite 8, Huntsville)
LCS is just the sweetest shop with clothes, gifts, accessories. We loooooooove the little boy clothes that seem to be a little harder to find out there!
Brooks & Collier (813 Meridian Street, Huntsville)
Don’t forget to say “hi” to Lucy and Ivy, the shop dogs and always pop into the greenhouse for a little “green therapy” while your shopping! Here is our fun view of Brooks & Collier’s first 75 years.
Designer’s Station (601 Monroe Street, Huntsville)
Dawn reminds us that DS is located in the old downtown bus station. If they can breathe life into that space, just imagine what they can do with your home!
Golden Griffin (104 Longwood Drive Southeast, Huntsville)
Clothes, artwork, gifts, oh my! Dawn recommends going back again and again. You will see something new every time you visit.
Haley’s (2806 Bob Wallace Avenue, Huntsville)
Haley’s can be your go-to store for everything build, renovate or design — flooring, cabinets, tile, furnishings and more. When Dawn shared her bathroom remodel on SCOUTED, you can see she used Haley’s beautiful tile in the renovation.
KP & Co. Interiors (2407 Memorial Parkway, Huntsville)
K and P are Karen and Pam and they do beautiful interior design for their clients. Pro tip: follow them on instagram to hear about their monthly furniture, lighting and accessory sales where they open up their warehouse of high quality items to sell to the public at reasonable prices.
The Chameleon Fabrics & Interiors (2407 Memorial Parkway, Huntsville)
The Chameleon is the premier fabric store in Huntsville offering beautiful in-stock and to-order options. They also have access to a team of reupholsters and seamstresses who can give old furniture new life, craft custom draperies, pillows, bedding and more!
The Furnish Co. (30030 Highway 72, Madison)
Sign-up on the website for their monthly pop-up events. We love in these days of long waits and scarcity, that you can pop-in, shop, and come home with beautiful, modern furnishings.
Victoria’s Interiors (604 Andrew Jackson Way Northeast)
Victoria’s Interiors is large and sprawling and has so much in stock to choose from—a welcome sight in times of “pre-order and wait.” What not to miss, though, is the lighting—so many options!
Deep South Mercantile (64 North Main Street, Arab)
So many lovingly selected items that represent the very best of the South. DSM is a sister-store to Southern General, right across the street, and both are well worth planning a day to spend in Arab.
Huntsville Botanical Garden Gift Shop (4747 Bob Wallace Avenue, Huntsville)
This little shop is worth a visit even when not spending a day at the garden. It offers a wide selection of items from children’s toys to jewelry to gardening items. If you are at a loss for a gift, there is always something special to be found here.
In Bloom (Corner of Clinton Avenue and Jefferson Street, Huntsville)
Stop for the disco music and the lively welcome from one of the owners Ron, but stay for the great selection of gifts and flowers. Dawn loves to check out the rotating window design featuring Joy, Ron’s muse and mannequin! It’s a kick!
Josie’s at Burritt on the Mountain (3101 Burritt Drive Southeast, Huntsville)
One of the best kept secrets in town, Josie’s is a great little shop with local finds, art, clothing, jewelry and more. Pro tip: you receive 10% off in the store on any day that you volunteer at Burritt. So, do some good and then fill your trunk with discounted gifts for the holidays!
Please Reply (2115 Whitesburg Drive Southeast, Huntsville)
Owner Kimberly is my secret weapon for gift seasons like grad or debutante gifts. She orders, has personalized, wraps and even delivers these special gifts for you all while keeping track of who gets what so the recipients don’t get duplicates from other generous friends!
Stach & Co. (217 Gunter Avenue, Guntersville | 112 East Main Street, Albertville)
Just 30 minutes from Huntsville, Stach is Guntersville’s gift shop, wedding registry, greek boutique, gourmet and wine store on steroids! And, just when you think you can’t shop any more, you can purchase wine and beers and pair it with a house-made charcuterie board on the back deck with a view of the lake.
Tiramisu Paperie ( 2000 Cecil Ashburn Drive, Suite 108, Huntsville)
We have been collectors and fans of her fun, funny, uplifting and often snarky cards sold through other retailers for years, and finally owner Lisa has opened her first brick and mortar store in Huntsville! We pop in all the time to enjoy the jolt of energy from trained artist and designer Lisa herself and the belly laughs that come from her cards and gifts. Who needs therapy with Tiramisu in town?!
Harrison Brothers (124 Southside Square, Huntsville)
Operated by the Huntsville Historic Foundation, Harrison Brothers is the oldest, continually operating hardware store in Alabama founded in 1897 that sells locally made arts & fine crafts, kitchen items & classic toys.
The Toy Place (804 Wellman Avenue Northeast, Huntsville)
Owner and Toy Guru Susan has just the right childlike spirit to fill this tiny space with the most fun and thoughtfully-selected stock of toys and games for kids of all ages.
Carole Forêt Fine Art (Downtown Huntsville)
Carole Forêt is known for her luscious, textural paintings and is one of the most regionally recognizable names in the art world. Carole teaches, paints on commission, and sells created works. She once created a map work called “Celebrating Huntsville” that was featured in our Scout Guide Huntsville Vol3 that can still be ordered today!
JULIECREWS Fine Art (2211 Seminole Drive, Studio 2007, Huntsville)
Julie Crews is an oil painter who grew up in Asheville, North Carolina and lived all over the country. Her work has a sense of irony and sometimes whimsy that we find so intriguing. Julie is featured in galleries around the country and operates an open studio and retail space in Lowe Mill.
Little Green Store (820 Monte Sano Boulevard Southeast, Huntsville)
LGS features works of many artists, painters, sculptors, jewelry designers and more. Pro tip: You will often see the who’s who of the local art scene at the monthly gallery opening reception on the first Thursday of every month.
DePriest Robbins (307 Clinton Avenue West, Huntsville)
As a diamond broker, DePriest Robbins can work with you to identify and select a stone and have it sourced for a special piece at a much more reasonable price than at a retail jewelry experience all while providing high-touch customer service and consultation. Who needs to go to the diamond district in a big city when you have DePriest Robbins? And, of course, don’t forget the seasonal trunk shows where they feature established jewelry designers as well!
Parker Bingham Jewelers (1623 Darby Drive, Florence)
An experience with PB is very personal and “high-touch”. Patty has a lifetime of experience in the jewelry field and she works with each client to source, create or customize a special piece. We love just popping into the store for a quick look when we’re in town, because the PB style is very fun, fresh and new.
Arcadia Tattoo & Curated Piercing Studio (2620 Clinton Avenue, 3rd Floor, Huntsville)
Arcadia Tattoo offers beautiful, fine piercing jewelry in gold, silver and titanium and the expertise to help their clients decide where to pierce and what pieces will look best. In the same way a curator designs an art gallery, their experienced piercers consult with each client to create a cohesive look for your ears.
