When this outstanding shop was open, it was filled to the brim with items "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" fans would want. Sadly, it closed a few years ago.

A very different kind of place. We were able to purchase a Savannah Waving Girl statue. Displays should probably be reworked and arranged more attractively. Everything stocked revolved around the book MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL.

I love the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and found this shop was well worth the visit. She has everything about the characters in the book as well as additional items you could not find anywhere else.

Overseeing all was the owner herself ready and able to give background information not only about The Book but also about Savannah and 'the slow, if at all' to change culture. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt I had my moneys' worth.

While this shop has everything imaginable related to "Midnight..." and the Bird Girl, be prepared to pay the price. It was interesting that the typical tourist books, as well as items such as the audio book, would have the suggested retail prices whited out or...More
