After a delicious lunch at Josephine’s Tea Room, we explore the shops next door. The gift shops are in the original houses that were once part of Monticello College, founded in 1838. Josephine’s store and Monticello House feature unique home décor, gifts, jewelry, women’s fashions, shoes, handbags, and accessories. Our next destination is 3 Charming Chicks, run by three classy women, featuring the most stylish items for your home at reasonable prices. The first weekend of the month is the only time they are open, so we get to explore all their finds—estate sale treasures, cleaned up, and made into something new and charming.
