Katie Armour, co-founder & editorial director of the online magazine Matchbook, is also author to her blog, The Neotraditionalist. A few blog posts back, Katie mentioned her upcoming visit to Atlanta to attend The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and was asking for input on places she should visit while in town. I couldn't help but throw my 2 cents in and offer my favorite spots, by neighborhood, depending on where she found herself staying. So, I have included my suggested list for today's post, if you should find your self out & about and in need of some interesting retail & culinary therapy.

>Shopping:  Armour & Co.

>Eating:  Bella Cucina (lunch) / Woodfire Grill (dinner) / Sugar Coated Radical (teeny tiny storefront offering insanely wonderful hand crafted truffles)

>Coffee:  Aurora
