Ye Ole Tobacco Shop
Savannah’s largest selection of cigars since 1973.
Ye Ole Tobacco Shop and Verdery’s have been in business more than 40 years. They were among the first few pioneers to open in the Historic Savannah area. These two shops opened with the idea of offering couples a one-stop place to shop, where both men and women could enjoy shopping together. They wanted to make it unique so customers would be overwhelmed with choices and selections and sure to remember this “one-of-a-kind shopping experience.” They make sure each customer walks away impressed with the quantity and quality of inventory. The heart of their business is that they love to meet people, share their passions, and assist them in fulfilling their desires. They want to help you find something to take home to remind you of Savannah.
Ye Ole Tobacco Shop offers the greatest selection of imported hand-rolled cigars from the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Nicaragua, all grown from Cuban seed. They have the finest pipe tobacco—“Count Pulaski”—their own creation, which is one of the bestselling tobaccos in the country. Come try each of their 24 custom blends and decide for yourself. They carry a great selection of pipe accessories as well.
They have a full line of gifts including Panama Jack hats, walking sticks, Savannah Bee Co. Honey, and Savannah souvenirs.
Verdery’s House of Lamps and Shades became so large that they had to build a ‘House” to put it in. In 1996 Verdery’s moved into a two story, antebellum plantation-style house in the heart of Savannah’s midtown, only 10 minutes from the Historic Savannah area. The home is filled with lamps, lampshades, decorative accessories, accent pieces, tassels and a full line of gift ideas.
The midtown location on Eisenhower carries “Georgia Historic Plate Collection” by Wedgwood, a 12-plate series highlighting Georgia’s history and commemorating the 200th anniversary of the founding of Georgia.
