Outside of On The Rocks

The Andersonville Galleria is not just one shop, but many. Over 50 vendors currently reside on the galleria’s three floors. Everything from clothing to pieces of art can be found. Many if not all of the vendors in the galleria are local artists and designers, making it a great place to shop if you want something unique or handmade.

On The Rocks

Alleyway to AlleyCat Comics

Stones, crystals, and more can be found at On The Rocks. The shop has become a favorite of gem and stone collectors due to the friendly staff and inviting atmosphere. Along with precious stones, On The Rocks also sells a wide variety of handmade jewelry by local artists and offers tarot card readings on certain days of the week.

AlleyCat Comics

Inside of Roost

Walking down Clark Street, it is easy to miss AlleyCat Comics. The shop itself is not actually visible from the street. Instead, an alleyway about two feet wide is the only clue that the shop is even there. Comic books, board games, and figurines grace the shelves, and the shop also holds weekly events and game nights.


Outside of Tilly Vintage Boutique

Roost is one of the many great antique shops found in Andersonville. The shop focuses on items for the home and garden and gives off a rustic, country vibe. This is definitely a shop to take some time and explore, as many knickknacks are hidden in every corner.
