Living in Atlanta, we are fortunate to be able to travel short distances for day trips and getaways. In three and a half hours we can be in historic Savannah. In just an hour and a half we can be in the North Georgia Mountains.

This weekend Jennifer and I took a day trip to Clayton, Georgia. Clayton is a cute, small town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. For us, Clayton offers a great escape…charming and historic downtown, unique shops, tasty restaurants and beautiful scenery.

Just outside the downtown area is our absolute favorite place to shop…Black Bear Creek Antiques. This antique shop has something for everyone in the family. Over the years Honey Bee and I have shopped here many times and we never leave empty handed. My husband has added many vintage and antique pieces to his fly fishing collection. I have acquired beautiful antique Mason jars, a hand painted antique wooden box, jewelry and kitchen items to name a few.
