What a quaint and charming town. Looks like a really fun place to walk around and shop. Ooh La La... so fitting! I can imagine it was an awesome place to have a shop! Looks like we'll be planning a getaway to Fairhope, someday!

Toes are crossed :D

Take care,

That reminds me so much of the Village's here in Lady Lake, Florida. There is a very lively downtown shopping district and so neat to walk and shop there. Their prices are better than the Walmart down here. Thanks for the tour. Looking forward to the house tour next.

Hi Linda, We used to visit Fairhope often when we lived in the Florida panhandle. I loved the cute shops and little cafes. It is one of my favorite small towns. You are so right about the real estate prices!
Hugs, Sherry

I feel like I've been on vacation with you as I sit here in the dreary dark rainy afternoon. I'm glad one of us is getting sun kissed.

Donna said...

I know of several people who live in Fairhope but I have never been there. I may visit next spring or summer. I would have loved your shop!

What a sweet little town. And it still looks like summer time there. So pretty! Thanks for the tour. Love & blessings from NC!

You KNOW I'd be headed straight to Ooh La-la! This looks like an ideal place to spend a lovely afternoon of browsing. La

What a great little tour! We just got back from Savannah and I am missing the cute little shops and being close to the ocean. I would be perfectly content living near a beach, but instead here I am in Kansas... ugh!

Beth said...

Such a cute little town! Love your blog! Thanks for stopping by mine too!

How charming. You gotta love a place that even decorates their trash bins. I'm enjoying our cooler weather, too.

Erin said...

Gorgeous shots, looks so quaint!!

Luciane at said...

This is a BEAUTIFUL TOWN!!!! You're lucky to be there! :-)

BTW, would you buy a house in NJ for 68 mil? Well, OPRAH WINFREY just might. She's in town! Take a look on my blog.

Oh, you're featuring my current home town!! I'm actually from across the bay from Fairhope in Mobile and ALWAYS wanted to live here. So, I married myself a Fairhope boy.

I do want to say that while Fairhope seems to just be full of Yuppies and Retired couples, it's not really. There's also quite a few of us artist-types/beach bums/middle class working folk. We're just not usually downtown in the middle of the day! ;)

You're pictures and descriptions are GREAT. Just like any city, Fairhope is what you make it and there are all kinds of hidden treasures! Thanks so much for featuring the great city I call home!

Unknown said...

Looks I need to get to Fairhope for some shopping! We haven't been there in ages.
I love how they do all the flower plantings, too.
