You’ve come to the right place!

Whether your shopping excursion is just for the pleasure of finding an unexpected purchase, or a serious endeavor to find a special gift, the Old City will make you feel like a time traveler.

Expect to see unique selections of works by established and emerging artists every time you open a door. If you need some refreshment while you shop, there are sidewalk cafes and restaurants on nearly every street.

St. George Street is blissfully free of vehicle traffic and has shops in old buildings with quaint second stories that extend out over the street. The city’s oldest locally owned clothing store, the H.W. Davis Co., founded in 1894, offers select ladies’ and men’s sportswear with labels you will recognize. Nearby in the Casa Del Hidalgo courtyard at Hypolita Street, St. Augustine Photographic Art Gallery can now reproduce your photos on ceramic tiles as well as on large format canvas print.
