Opened in 1999, Squash Blossom is a standby in Decatur for a devoted clientele. Its shelves are stacked with the sort of boho-cool knits and doodads Decaturites swoon for, from Free People and Johnny Was to Toms. Find the new Spanx jeans, kimonos and scarves from local company Maelu, and a huge selection of Chan Luu jewelry. Runners up? Two stores by some of the same minds: Sq/Ft just around the corner, which carries Camper and Patagonia for men and women, and Inman Dry Goods on Edgewood, which brings kantha quilts, baby line Aden + Anais, and a solid selection of greeting cards. 113 East Court Square, Decatur, squashblossomboutique.com
