One of my favorite shops in downtown Augusta is Elduets Treasures of the World. I sort of stumbled upon it one weekend when I had friends from out of town visiting and I was showing them around downtown. Little did I know, I'd find a few discoveries of my own that day! The shop was immediately intriguing to me, since they had all sorts of things in the shop window and who doesn't love 'treasures'? When we first walked in, I didn't really know where to start. It's not overwhelming, there are just so many different things to look at. They have everything from sculptures and recycled artwork to candles and organic, fair trade coffees and teas. I found some great handmade jewelry there recently for a birthday gift and the earrings were a hit!
Elduets is located between the 11th and 12th Street block on Broad Street and is open Monday through Friday from Noon to 5:30 and 10 a.m. to 5:30 on Saturdays. They also stay open late on First Fridays! If you're into rare gifts and treats, you should definitely check it out. It really is a unique place in Downtown Augusta.
