About Us

Polka Dots was opened on Whitemarsh Island in Savannah, Georgia in 2008 by Jackie Pickering when she realized that there was a real need for a local shop where people could find cute and reasonably priced gifts.  Over the years the store has become a local favorite where the employees make a real effort to get to know the customers and try to help them to find the perfect gift.  The ladies who work at Polka Dots have become a family over the years and they make every effort to bring the customers into that family.  

Polka Dots carries such brands as Mudpie, Scout, Vera Bradley, Votivo, Capri Blue and Bridgewater Candles, Smathers and Branson, Lifeguard Press and many local brands.  If you see something on our Social Media that is not on the website, please call the store!  Our employees will be happy to help you over the phone!

In March of 2018 The Gift Shoppe by Polka Dots was opened on Broughton Street in Historic Savannah. It's a teeny, tiny space that houses a whole lot of great merchandise that appeals to both the tourists and locals. It is a one stop shop for Byrd's Cookies, Capital Bee Honey, Savannah Candy Kitchen and a lot of great art by local artists. You can also pick up a Scout Bag and some great jewelry while you are there!

We hope you enjoy shopping on our new website...it is just getting started, so keep checking back for new additions!!
