Downtown Swag

The holidays may be over, but swag is always an appropriate gift

·         Perk them right up with our Double-Barreled Brew coffee, custom-blended by Jittery Joe's ($10 for a can, $2 for a pouch).

·         And speaking of pouches, how's about a rad messenger bag? Perfect for toting books, gifties, groceries…. Just $10!

·         Or, keep your beverage of choice cool with a wicked Downtown Athens coozie: a steal at $3.

·         And, as always and always in perfect taste, a Downtown gift certificate! Available in $5, $10, $20, or $50 increments.


Come Downtown to 246 West Hancock and find gifts to please everyone.


It takes a lot of work to keep our Downtown so awesome. If you are interested in helping out, click here for more info on volunteering.
