Like a well-curated Parisian flea market, The Paris Market is a vision of intriguing and unforgettable treasures. Founded in 2001 by Paula and Taras Danyluk, the two-level, 5,200-square-foot Savannah boutique is housed in an 1874 Victorian building originally built as a grocery store, which they lovingly restored to its old-world splendor. The pair travels the globe to source unique and fantastical pieces, both big and small, modern and antique: from hand-crafted jewelry and accessories to custom-made lighting, French-milled soaps to hard-to-come-by kitchen tools. A charming corner of the store offers wares and gifts just for children and an expansive section of books and magazines is devoted to art, design, food and travel. Tables are set with all the accoutrements for the perfect dinner party, while daybeds are dressed in layers of luxurious linens and throw pillows.
In 2019, The Paris Market opened a second location in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina—a little slice of heaven along the May River, about 25 minutes in either direction from Savannah and Hilton Head Island. This shoppe is like the eccentric little sister of the Savannah store: smaller in stature (about 1,200 square feet) and a total free spirit, featuring paintings, ceramics, jewelry and an ever-evolving selection of the Danyluks’ favorite curiosities from France.
