Savannah: Arcanum Antiques Interiors
“Eighteenth century meets eighteen minutes ago” is the mantra of this gas station turned showroom in Savannah, Georgia’s historic district. Here, Southern standbys—silver mint-julep cups are a hot seller—stand beside oil paintings by local artists, including Samuel J. Ward and Daniel E. Smith, a former monk who creates color-drenched abstractions based on low-country landscapes and architecture.
Favorite finds: As befits its name, Arcanum specializes in decorative arcana. Look for crystal balls (from $57), Neoclassical-styled urns with brass snake handles ($88), and carved-bone lobsters and crayfish (from $290). Also popular: semiprecious gemstone strands from local designer Alexandra Trujillo’s HRH The Duchess of State jewelry line (from $200).
