“The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.”

Unlike the butterfly, we don’t have time enough to spend with our boys on spring break and write for this little blog…  So we’re enjoying the moments this week and will be back next Monday!

So you thought you were going to get an Atlanta Gift Show recap!  While there are many marvelous showrooms at the AmericasMart, you won’t find the rare, vintage and coveted treasures displayed in Fiona Druckenmiller’s store, which opened to great acclaim last fall on Madison Avenue.

FD Gallery is the kind of place that leaves you breathless upon entering.  And it’s not just the intimate setting (Fiona was inspired by boutiques in Paris and Milan) that will have you coming back again and again.  This world traveller and collector changes the cases every month to reflect a carefully curated them.

One month Fiona will feature objects inspired by Egyptian Revival and the next, she showcases the whimsical work of artist Patrick Mavros, whose silver sculptures bring to life the animals of the savannah.  We love the fact that you never know what you may discover when you stop by this store –  truly a neighborhood “gem”.
