January and February tend to be the months that we just want to hide indoors under blankets, but this past Thursday there were enough exciting events going on in Savannah to lure us out for an evening. We hit the grand opening of the new Broughton Street Kendra Scott store, the Valentine’s Day reception at Kobo Gallery and a celebration of the opening of the new Club Monaco Savannah location.
The additions of Kendra Scott and Club Monaco to Broughton Street represent a part of the re-development that has been going on over the past couple of years. Whether you love it or hate it, it’s happening, and we appreciated both stores’ efforts to incorporate local vendors and business-owners in their events. Kendra Scott did a stellar job with sweet treats on-hand from De Colores Cookies y Mas (pre-order our spring issue to learn more about owner Ely Rooney, who we’ve named one of our spring tastemakers!), Adam Turoni and Marche de Macarons (you can read about the owners waaaay back in our archives). Club Monaco also partnered with a handful of local business-owners to throw their opening event, and we fell hard for the matchstick print pieces in this season’s collection.
We enjoyed adding in an all-local stop at Kobo Gallery, where we saw work by some of our favorite local artists, including Tobia Makover (you can read our article on Tobia coming up in our spring issue), Christina Edwards, Marta McWhorter (those installations!) and many more.
