I founded ShopSouthernCities.com in the summer of 2019, launching the website officially in fall of 2019. I'm the owner and lead designer of Dodeline Design, which has been creating beautiful custom stationery and providing graphic design services since 2009. Originally, though, dodeline was more of a products company. I set up at the very first Lowcountry Artist Market at the Music Farm in May of 2010 with some greeting cards "to test out the waters." I was terrified and just wanted to know if people liked what I made. Luckily, they did, and here we are 10 years later!
As Dodeline has become more and more of a wedding company, the time was right to separate and re-think the product line. That's how ShopSouthernCities.com came to be. With my education background in interior design, I've always sort of specialized in illustrating buildings and that type of scenery, so designing our product line around our favorite cities just made sense.
Road tripping to all the beautiful places in the South (especially during hurricane evacuations, amiright?), reading great books, decorating with personal and special items...these are just a few of the things we love and hope you will too.
We are so excited to launch with Charleston, Savannah, NOLA, and Charlotte as our debut cities, and we'll be adding new cities all the time. Please join our mailing list and stay tuned as we add other cities and items monthly.
Have a vote for which city we do next, or want to share ideas for what we should include in your city? Drop us a line.
Thanks for being part of the journey,
