Folks living in Collingwood Apartment’s in Alpharetta, Georgia love the convenience of having stylish malls, boutiques and shops within minutes of their home! And, did you know that Alpharetta has more than 250 shops within a five-mile radius where you can browse and buy? Relax, because the Idea Specialists© at Collingwood have compiled a few of their favorite places from Fashion, Furniture and Food for residents to indulge in and enjoy.
You can’t go wrong at Moop’s Boutique where owner Carolyn Gordon has an outstanding reputation for knowing her clientele, providing great customer service and staying up to date on fashion trends. “This year’s Fall fashion trend is leopard and cheetah prints, along with all things camo,” she declares. “Also, this year’s fall color is yellow.” Stop in and get styled to the nines at the shop’s downtown Alpharetta address on 58 Canton St #102.
Another fab shop just 3.4 miles from Collingwood is Magnolia Moon Modern Outfitters on 245 Market Street across from the Town Green. We love this shop because it’s filled with the latest—blending contemporary women’s apparel with professional “day-to-night” pieces, special occasion dresses, cozy basics, and unique accessories. The boutique also offers women’s sizes, shoes (check out these fun booties we found), plus unique home and gift items.
And don’t worry gentlemen, we have you covered with a local recommendation as well. Try Clothes Horse Men’s Apparel, a local retailer found at 28 Milton Ave in Alpharetta. Owners Charleen and John Thompson feel that their store is “a way to of manifest southern hospitality while providing classic, comfortable apparel and accessories to North Atlanta.” You’ll find a great inventory of collections including Best Sellers, Adventurist and our favorite Coastal Prep.
Of course, in addition to filling your wardrobe this fall, you may be like us and need furniture for your awesome spacious luxury apartment here at Collingwood.
One place we love is Queen of Hearts, an antique mall in Alpharetta located at 670 North Main Street. Currently celebrating it’s 21st year, the retailer hosts more than 200 dealers who offer a wide variety of items for sale, among them interior décor such as Mid-Century Modern furniture, home decor, art, rugs, painted and repurposed furniture. Best of all, Queen of Hearts offers free Design Team Tuesday consultations with Shana Gonzales (BLEU), Melissa Dale (STORY), and Cherilyn Allen (TFP).
For those who prefer the latest in furniture styles, check out West Elm in Avalon. The ultra-hip shop presents modern design with an eye toward sustainability. According to its website, West Elm’s team designs 90% of products in–house, allowing the retailer to offer a wide selection of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced and Fair Trade Certified™ products. We love this Jensen Round Dining table, perfect for the dining area in Collingwood’s spacious floorplans.
One final furniture boutique we love to shop and browse is Belso Home Studio, just four miles from Collingwood and featuring a wide variety of sectionals, sofas and chairs, ottomans and poufs, along with accessories, lighting, and a custom handcrafted upholstery line. The boutique is committed to locally made and hand-crafted goods including tables made in Georgia, and hand poured candles to name a few. Stop in to see (and sniff) at their downtown Alpharetta on 30 North Main Street.
