I've had my eye on Roost for quite some time but never managed to get up to Andersonville being that the weekends are always so busy. This past weekend I finally had the opportunity to and it was worth the wait. While you can definitely find quite a bit of rooster collectibles...that is barely the tip of the iceberg. Daniel, the owner, clearly has sophisticated taste and a knack for displaying home goods. I was drooling. Local artwork, entire sets of antique tableware, pottery and dress forms adorn this boutique. It's almost a challenge to decide where to look first -- but in a good way because every whimsical piece tells a story.
