Who’s ready for Friday Night Bites on Friday, May 13th? We sure are! And to get into the true vampire spirit of this event, we’re bringing you the top spots to hunt for The Vampire Diaries memorabilia. All of these charming stores are located right in Mystic Falls, aka Covington Georgia and all are chock full of incredible TVD gifts and unique finds for your favorite vampire fan.
Your first stop should be The Alley. Located right under everyone’s favorite haunt, The Mystic Grill, The Alley may be a small gift shop, but all of their treasures are unique! They even got the name from the infamous “Murder Alley” that many TVD fans seek to find. We love the burlap covered pillow from Mystic Falls and their silver jewelry collection is simply gorgeous. They also have a variety of Mystic Grill t-shirts, coffee mugs, and more!
If it’s the protection of silver you’re in the market for, we also recommend a visit to Twelve Oaks Bed & Breakfast. They have handcrafted replicas of Elena’s daylight ring and the beautiful silver leaf earrings she also wears on the show! You may love Twelve Oaks so much, you’ll never want to leave. If you find yourself in this predicament, book a stay within the very Salvatore Study.
Next, pop over to the Cork Boutique and Gifts for some delicious Vampire Wine. We admit that we were a little skeptical at first, after all it is red liquid in a bottle labeled “Vampire”. But, trust us. This wine will make you howl at the moon! We recommend the Pinot Noir, a dark libation for your darkest night. It even comes in its own coffin!
Your final resting place for this vampire-themed boo-tique crawl should be Vampire Stalkers. This place is the mecca of Vampire Diaries memorabilia, and home of our local Mystic Falls Tours. Where else can you go to see actual props used on the show by Damon, Stefan, and the rest of the cast? (Photo via @thefairytaletraveler on Instagram)
This shop on the corner has literally everything from the show as well as some pretty incredible one-of-a-kind pieces. You can find wine glasses, Mystic Falls beanies, t-shirts, mini cardboard cut-outs of characters, and even bumper stickers that let everyone know who you’re sired by. Need a necklace for Bite Night? Pick up one of Katherine’s 1800 cameos as well as Elena’s daylight ring! If you’re having some naughty vampires trouble you, pick up a stake at Vampire Stalkers too. We told you they had everything!
Now that we’ve mentioned the mini cut-outs of each character, follow our friend, The Fairytale Traveler, on Instagram to find and watch her latest local “snap” series called The Wandering Vamps. This series is a hysterically entertaining look at things to do in Mystic Falls as she takes each “vampire” out on the town. Follow her and tune in on Wednesdays around 5:30!
So, creep on out to Covington to shop for TVD gifts find your favorite Vampire memorabilia today! And be sure to join us on Friday May 13th for Friday Night Bites on the Covington Square as we celebrate the eternal moments of The Vampire Diaries, Season 7. It's going to be a bloody good time!
