5 shops you can’t miss:
These are some of the many shops worth stopping in when you visit.
1. AM Collective | Suite 103
I’ve followed AM Collective for a while since the last vintage market I attended in Huntsville. Opened by childhood friends Ashli and Michaela, AM Collective offers an eclectic, curated collection of vintage finds and handmade creations.
2. Maxwell’s Music | Suite 106
Another reason Clinton Row reminds me of Lowe Mill: it has a record store. Maxwell’s Music is a stacked record shop full of treasure tucked away in Clinton Row.
I had a lovely time browsing this selection of quality, older records and chatting with owner Jared Maxwell. He has been curating his vinyl collection for 20 years and has been at Clinton Row since 2018. His top priorities are quality and condition (no record will have a scratch on it—impressive for a nothing-new record shop).
3. One Man’s Vintage | Suite 146
One Man’s Vintage has been on my radar for a while, and I was excited to finally see their storefront in person. The walls are decked out in vintage signage that give the store a fun, retro feel.
Be ready to get sorting when you walk in—there are tons of unique finds to flip through. One Man’s Vintage has all kinds of t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, hats and more to look through.
Keep your eye out for their events, too. They hosted their first of many Downtown Vintage Markets last weekend which featured 30+ hand-selected vintage vendors.
4. Mojana Soaps | Suite 143
It’s hard to miss the bright colors and fragrance of Mojana Soaps. This adorable family-owned shop sells fun, colorful soaps that use natural ingredients and no synthetic fragrances, making it fun to use and good for your skin.
5. Creative State | Suite 119
Creative State offers a variety of handmade gifts, decor, jewelry and decor from local makers. I personally loved their jewelry selection and bought a new ring to take home.
