Cold Water BooksUnique specialty shops in nineteenth century buildings attract visitors to historic downtown Tuscumbia. Savor roasted peanuts at the town’s oldest continuously operated store, Cold Water Seed and Supply, then check out the variety of merchandise in galleries, gift shops, and fashionable ladies clothing boutiques. Browse home décor shops then visit a delightful fabric nook where sewing and craft notions are shelved ceiling-high. Downtown shoppers will enjoy Cold Water Books with its plush leather seating and flavorful coffees to sip while reading the books and magazines or enjoy dining at Claunch Café in Spring Park, OH! Bryan’s Downtown, PoBoys Cajun Grille, or City Café. Don’t forget to go by Aunt Bea’s Bakery and Bistro or The Palace Ice Cream & Sandwich Shop for a sweet treat.


Neighboring Sheffield, the city on the bluff, is undergoing an extensive period of revitalization. Stroll along Montgomery Avenue for a variety of shopping experiences. From trendy fashions at Zoey Belle’s Boutique, The Rak, and Lorraine’s Boutique, to Lola’s Flowers and Gifts, a community cornerstone for over 40 years. Sheffield Hardware, located in a fully restored downtown building carries everything from paint, electrical and plumbing supplies, to housewares needs.

Nearby, Lynda’s Loft is another favorite for classic women’s clothing and special gifts.
