A new gift shop is opening soon in North Augusta on 336 Georgia Avenue, Suite 101. It’s called High Cotton Downtown, and I’d like to tell you a little bit about it.
According to owner Gail DeVecchio, her idea for starting High Cotton Downtown began in childhood. Whereas other kids were busy playing “house,” she played “store.” This makes this store’s grand opening extra special because it’s her dream come true.
High Cotton Downtown isn’t her first store opening, though. She also opened a shop in Knoxville, Tennessee seven years ago called Gifty Girl which is still going strong. One of the neat things that store has in common with this one is it shares the same greeter who welcomes every customer through the door that this one does—her dog Toby.
You can find many unique gifts and items for your home at High Cotton Downtown. “Home is a place that needs to make you happy,” Gail says. “When you walk in, it needs to make you feel good, so those are the kinds of things you’ll find here—things for your home or things you want to give somebody as a gift.”

When I first walked into this store, I felt at home, and Gail’s flair for decorating is incredible. I know this from personal experience—I’ve been inside her home, which is for sale at 5105 Farmstead Drive. Gail will also soon be offering decoration consultation services for anyone who wants to spruce up their home or workplace.
High Cotton Downtown’s grand opening is this Friday, August 11th at 10 a.m. After the ribbon is cut, they’ll pop the champagne and start the afternoon with some cool giveaways, discounts, and a raffle—the proceeds of which will go directly to the local animal shelter. That evening, they’ll have happy hour from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., during which time there will be live music, pizza, and beer.
If you buy a home through Shannon Rollings Real Estate in August or September, you’ll also receive a deluxe free gift bag from High Cotton Downtown. Included in the gift bag is a four-piece set of either wine glasses or tumblers engraved with your name. My husband and I have a set of the wine glasses, and we love them and use them every day.
I look forward to this grand opening, and I look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, if you have any questions or are considering buying or selling a home, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to help.
