The Wandering Owl Gift Shop Opening For the Season April 5


The Wandering Owl Gift Shop in Augusta offers a variety of beautiful items made by talented local artists and vendors. These items include handmade grapevine wreaths, lovely decor items, greeting cards, honey, and jams from a local Bicentennial Farm, seasonal decor, nostalgic toys, handmade jewelry, original Augusta shirts, hats and more. You won't find these unique and one-of-a-kind items anywhere else.



The Wandering Owl is a charming store with a whitewashed facade and a covered front porch adorned with rocking chairs and potted plants. The atmosphere inside is warm and friendly, but what makes this store special is that it is owned and operated by the Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce. By purchasing from the Wandering Owl, you are contributing to the chamber's current project of revitalizing the Town Square. You are not only shopping but supporting local artists and also giving back to the community.

The Wandering Owl at 5577 Walnut will open for Spring on Friday, April 5. The store will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. If you are a group of 10 or more people and would like special access to the store, please contact the store for arrangements at 636-228-4440.
