New Faces and Places in Downtown Newnan

There are some shiny new faces and places in downtown Newnan — particularly on Greenville Street between Spring Street and West Broad.

The first place that got my attention was SURE Bride at 4 Greenville Street. Not that I’m looking to get married again, with our 50thwedding anniversary coming up in December, but there are many young folks looking for that perfect wedding experience in Coweta County, and SURE Bride is one sure place to check out for the most glamorous gowns and accessories. 

In fact, according to their manager Meredith (Mikie) Bullock, they are doing so well in their current location that they will be moving soon to the much larger space on the corner that was once home to Deals for Dollars. The grand opening is expected in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on their FB page for more information. 

The PINK FLAMINGO KIDS children’s clothing and toy store will be moving into SURE Bride’s current space at 4 Greenville Street. Watch here for the opening date.

Across the road, at 5 Greenville Street, sits SISTERS THREE BOUTIQUE. This eclectic shop is filled with unusual but useful finds, including a wide variety of purses, appare, and gifts suitable for just about anyone. They are one of the only places you can get “permanent jewelry,” made of your choice of fine metal chains and welded together, so you never have to remove it. (Although you can if you choose to.)

The owner is Angela Neilsen, who also owns BOLD SOUL BOUTIQUE at 9 Greenville Street, another fantastic eclectic shop that graced Greenville Street for about three years. Be sure and sample their high-quality olive oils and vinegar blends while you shop for locally made jams, jellies, and merchandise in general.

After leaving Three Sisters, I spotted a sign on the sidewalk, encouraging me to climb the stairs to one of the most delightful children’s shops I have ever seen.  ELLIE + ROO, located at 15 1/2 Greenville is a treasure spot filled with the sweetest and freshest children’s clothing, toys, and accessories for Mom. The space is filled with bright natural light and the walls are filled with decorations for the nursery or child’s room. The shop is owned by Rachel Kuhl, who also owns Newnan Mercantile, and it is named after Rachel’s children.

Our downtown area is alive and active, and new shops open or change location occasionally, so take a moment to walk a block or two with a friend and visit the places that are new to you and the ones you haven’t been in for a while. You never know what you might find!
