Gilded Lily

To gild refined gold, to paint the lily,... To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess.
— Shakespeare, The Life and Death of King John, Act IV, Scene II

The Idea

Our name stems from the very ideal that beauty can be found in every item for every occasion, whether it is fundamental or just for fun.

"Gilding the Lily" is based on the concept that even though one may not find a detail pertinent to their life, that detail still helps make their life beautiful in a special way. Thus, Gilded Lily specializes in making one's life beautiful by providing details to do so. 

Style & Quality

Gilded Lily only represents items of great value and remarkable quality. Pieces in the store range from new and unused condition, to items and curios found within the vintage and antique market. 

We work close with our proprietors, near and far, to guarantee our shoppers with specialization, uniqueness, and exclusivity. 

Who we are

Gilded Lily is fortunate to work with such great brands and companies, locally or internationally.

Just a few of the lines we carry include French Kande jewelry,  Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine, Savannah Bee Company honey, Lizzy Couture jewelry, Lollia bath and body goods, and Linnea's Lights candles. 

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He (or she at Gilded Lily!) is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.
