About Us.............
Create-A-Keepsake opened on Front Street, Georgetown, S.C. in December 2003.   The idea for the shop came
from finding boxes of things my parents had saved and more importantly, what was not saved. There was no one to ask
the many questions that come up after the passing of a loved one. I needed to find a way to provide items that would be
kept as a family keepsake.    The children's personalized books led to the music CD's personalized.   From there evolved
family memory books for Mom's, Dad's, and Grandparents.  We carry books for brides to start recording their anniversary
memories.  Baby books and School Memory Books for children.  A Family Recipe Book for all those foods we never want
to forget that only "your" family can make.

Special items that are not found in every shop include personalized barbeque platters, birthday plates, collegiate
ceramics.   We have a line of specialty baby gifts, christening bibs, a suitcase to take to Grandma's, a photo a month first
year photo frame and too many other items to mention.    

We have added many gift items, educational toys, Webkinz and the ever popular Croc shoes.  

The newest addition to our business is
Stationery and  Invitations.  We print many types of invitations, announcements
and stationery on site including
Kate Parker Papers, Odd Balls, Checkerboard and of course, we have many catalogs from
the wedding specialists at
Carlson Craft and Birchcraft.

We have recently relocated to CANTON, GEORGIA.  We still carry the same lines and can easily ship whatever you need.   
Just give us a call at (678) 3
50-8150 or email us at: [email protected]   

We look forward to hearing from you and continuing to serve you.  
Front Street in Historic Seaport Georgetown, South Carolina, is
the downtown shopping area.   Tourist and locals alike can find an
eclectic mix of shops and restaurants to suit everyone's taste.
The Georgetown Light House can
only be viewed by boat and there
are several tour companies taking
visitors daily to the lighthouse.
We are proud of our waterfront and its
history.  A beautiful harborwalk was built
to allow visitors to stroll and enjoy
our seaport.  
"OUTSIDE ONLINE" states  in its web page---
IT'S A TOSS UP trying to decide which is more astonishingly preserved: the downtown of South Carolina's third-oldest municipality,
bordered by the Sampit River, shaded by live oaks, and riddled with dozens of pre-Revolution buildings; the southern hospitality
of the well-established families who live here; or the unspoiled natural riches nearby.

OUTDOORS: Five meandering rivers drain into Winyah Bay, providing weeks' worth of canoeing or kayaking alongside alligators,
egrets, and the remains of 18th-century rice plantations. And to the southwest, Francis Marion National Forest offers a quarter-
million acres of lakes, rivers, and low country, threaded by the 42-mile Swamp Fox–Palmetto Hiking Trail and 40 miles of
doubletrack on the Wambaw Cycle Trail.

REAL ESTATE: Colonials—some built before 1800—in the laid-back historic district start at $170,000 . Newer homes in outlying
neighborhoods can run from $250,000.00 to $1,000,000.00 plus (for a gorgeous spread along the riverbank).  

HANGOUTS: Harbor House, a three-story Georgian bed-and-breakfast of 1700s vintage, affords a pelican's-eye view of the
shrimpers and sailors docked along the Sampit River .  The DuPre House a popular B&B in the historic area, affords visitors a
taste of the old south.   At the
Thomas Cafe, a lunch counter on Front Street that opened in 1928, choose from Cajun omelets,
Vergies crawfish-cake sandwiches, and bread pudding with bourbon sauce ( and don't forget Vergies Cobbler and Key Lime Pie).   
The
Cafe is a locals favorite!  Any visit to Georgetown would not be complete without a visit to the River Room Restaurant  with
their famous shrimp and grits or the
Rice Paddy Restaurant with too many specialties to mention.  The Dogwood Restaurant
features many seafood items and
The Old Fish House has a flavor all its own.  If that's not enough, try Pannie's in the Fogel Mall for
a little taste of Italy.  End your visit with something sweet - ice cream at
Cold Rocks or Georgetown's famous pralines at Sweeties
on Front
.  

New additions to Front Street are
REVOLVE a trendy little restaurant with an International flair.  Dwayne has a revolving evening
menu featuring Mexican, Thai, Japanese and an assortment of other food to temp you.  The
BROWN PELICAN restaurant in the 700
Block starts early with assorted coffees and beignets either indoors or out.  Try the Gumbo or a PoBoy Sandwich for lunch and
now open Thursday-Saturday evening for dinner.  They are both open on Sundays in the afternoon.  
The Buzzards Roost is an
interesting little place on the waterfront (the 700 Block).  A selection of Hot Dogs, Sausages, Wraps and fresh seafood boils and
all your favorite beverages make for a fun visit.  Entertainment on weekends and Sunday afternoons.   In case you still want
something different - look for the purple door and walk up to
The Humidor.  This cigar bar has a nice selection of wine, beer,
coffee and lite food.  Internet access and comfortable seating overlooking the waterfront are a favorite for locals and tourists.  A
selection of cigars and cigarettes sets this little spot apart from the rest.  They also feature entertainment on many weekends.

THINGS TO DO -  We have 3 museums - The Rice Museum,  The Georgetown County Museum and the Kaminski House Museum.   
They tell the story of the rich history of this beautiful city.  Miss Geraldine operates the Swamp Fox Tram through the city and she
might even sing for you!  Miss Nell, a true southern lady, operates a walking history tour through the tree lined streets in the
historic area.  There are ghost tours in the evenings as well.  The Jolly Rover  and The Plantation Tours are boat adventures -
some even go to the Georgetown Lighthouse and stop at an island for shelling and you might even see a Pirate!  Take a walk on
the Harborwalk and stroll the many unique shops on Front Street - there's something for every taste and pocketbook.  

Stop by the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center on Front & Queen Street for information on all of these
activities.

There's so much to see and do in this small city - you'll need to spend at least a weeken
d!
Georgetown County, located between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina, is steeped in tales of dynamic men and women
who once lived and prospered here. Though these men and women have now passed away, many of their spirits still remain. Rumor has
it that there are over a hundred ghosts in the area, making Georgetown County one of the nation's most haunted locations.

Ghost tours are also available in Georgetown by land and sea  - stop by the Visitors Center on Front Street for information.

Traveling on Highway 17 through the City of Georgetown, you won't find us unless you turn off on St. James St., Broad St. or Front
Street!!  It's worth the visit.
