About Us

The South has a long history of hospitality and impeccable taste. One step into SweetPea’s and you’ll know you’ve found a gift shop with a sense of what it means to be inviting, unique and truly Southern.  We invite you to browse our website and online store to see a little of who we are.  SweetPea’s is proud to offer one-of-a-kind gifts to the discerning buyer and gift-giver in Effingham and Chatham County and the surrounding area and strives to provide outstanding personal service to our customers, both in-store and online.

Marnie Thompson and Laura Harrelson are a mother-daughter team and natives of Effingham County, GA.  Laura can often be heard to say “ Our employees become part of our family.  We don’t just hire someone, we adopt them.”  At the heart of our business is a family – one who believes that Southern hospitality, charm and graciousness should remain a focus of everyday life. And we love helping you find joy in the giving, loving and living you share with your family and friends.

Welcome back to the South.
