Iconic Buckhead silver shop to close

Beverly Bremer Silver Shop is calling it quits after 47 years as Buckhead’s go-to spot for high-end flatware and unusual gifts.

The closure was announced by the shop in a Feb. 5 social media post saying, “After 47 wonderful years, we are retiring.” The closure was first reported by Tomorrow’s News Today.

Still bearing the name of its late founder, the shop at 3164 Peachtree Road in Buckhead Forest is now owned by her daughter, Margaret “Mimi” Woodruff, who could not immediately be reached for comment.

Bremer got into the silver business in 1975 as a divorced mother of three looking to support her family. She started with a booth called “Collector’s Corner” at a Piedmont Road flea market at what is now Lindbergh Center. She opened the silver shop in 1980.

Bremer died in 2017 at age 85, but the shop continued as a family business. By then, it was a local icon with a national reputation for securing high-quality and rare pieces from estates. (A $79,000 centerpiece is among the current offerings.) Services included silver care and research on pieces. Many patrons made a tradition of purchasing annual silver Christmas tree ornaments there.

The shop is holding a “Fond Farewell Sale” with hours that have already adjusted based on “overwhelming response.” As of publication, the shop said online sales would continue through March 13 and limited in-store shopping would be available Feb. 15-18 and 22-25.
