Why shop in Georgetown? First of all, it’s small town charm and the people are amazing. Just this past week, we had the chance to meet a few of them.
Maime’s Fine Wine & Gifts
Anne over at Maime’s Fine Wine & Gifts will help you make any occasion special by building you a beautiful gift basket that is assembled with love. She has personally tried just about every product in her store and can help you find the perfect gift.

She enjoys meeting new customers and will make your shopping experience perfect and personal. Want to know more about Maime’s Fine Wine & Gifts? Click here.
Valentine’s Day can be a Hallmark moment, when you head on over to see Missy and her staff at Miss Behaven. In this store, there is more than just Hallmark Cards and merchandise, there are KY Proud and Kentucky made and crafted products among the many things they have to offer. Bonus is that you can get the card and the gift in one location. For some reason, they don’t have what you are looking for, they can tell you where to find it on Main Street in Georgetown. Meet Missy and the gang in our extended blog post. Click here.
Simple Charm is simply amazing. This is a store that doesn’t follow the markets, they follow the hand crafters. This is also a store with a very creative owner that can take what is unappealing and show you what makes it beautiful. Her shop is a mix of vintage and handmade, home decor and gift items and a wide variety of things that change with the season. Come inside and explore Simple Charm with us. Click here.
After growing up on Main Street, Amy thought it would be cool to own a store on Main Street, so she purchased one. She had worked in retail through college and thought why not own a business where I live. Twisted Twigs has a lot of Kentucky local products with the rights to carry other nationally recognized brands. She has gifts any price and for any age from 2 – 90. She loves visiting with hometown people, so make sure you stop in and say hello. To get an inside look at the store, click here.
