5Continents Boutique Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes: Everyone enjoys jetsetting 'round the globe to collect artwork and trinkets, but pesky little things like airfare always seem to interfere. But once you stumble upon the worldly collection of gifts, artwork, jewelry and more at 5Continents, baggage claims and jetlag will be but a distant memory. This international artist's co-op showcases the work of over 60 artists in 50 countries across the globe, all handcrafted, all fair-trade wares and all stocked in this bright little cottage co-op in Buckhead for your perusal, no airfare required. For people like me whose acute wanderlust is stifled by, y'know, jobs and leases and other such petty trifles, a short walk through 5Continents is just nearly enough to quench that travel thirst. Jennifer spent her youth traveling the world with her mother and developing a keen eye for beautiful, unusual finds, from Indonesian batik to Balinese paintings. Not exactly the airbrushed tanks and snow globes of traditional souvenir fare. With 5Continents, she's assembled a global collection of artists whose work you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere without hopping on a plane yourself—and yet, all you have to do is step inside. The front door of 5Continents is a bit like the sophisticated shopping equivalent of a C.S. Lewis-style wardrobe, whisking you out of the streets of Buckhead and straight into Africa, the first of the five continents on display in the boutique. With each room of the cottage representing a different part of the globe, it's never been easier to take a short stroll from Kenya to, say, Peru, followed by a trip to Indonesia for a batik dress and a little detour to France for triple-milled soaps and embroidered baby goods. Amidst your travels, perhaps somewhere between the leather cuffs from St. Lucia and the handmade dolls from Cameroon, you might realize that you... aren't in Kansas anymore, Toto. The goods at 5Continents are quite literally oceans apart from anything you could find at a mall, packing a whole 'round the world journey into one little cottage. And the best part is, you don't even have to pack a suitcase for this trip. Unless you plan on scooping up a lot of that Peruvian jewelry... which I just might.
