Just a few blocks away spend the night at the exquisite Edwardian Inn bed and breakfast, an 11-room retreat that will take you back in time.  Always booked well in advance for the King Biscuit Blues Festival, you can usually reserve a room any other time of the year.  When staying there you will experience fine luxury and cozy surroundings in a perfect example of the some of the grand homes built in Helena long ago.  

Helena-West Helena is situated along the Mighty Mississippi River and is considered by many people as the birthplace of the blues. The unique delta town has a rich culture that includes the world famous King Biscuit Blues Festival each October.  Tourists love to enjoy the magnificent turn-of-the century homes and sites which still exist and the quaint antique shops along the Cherry Street Historic District.
Even though there are no big name department stores or malls located here, some of the best antique and gift shops are sprinkled throughout the Cherry Street Historic District.  

Delta Gypsy, is a boutique with unique art, linens, dishes, and distinctive gifts by well-known designers like Vera Bradley and New York based artist Patience Brewster.  
Cotton and Kudzu offers quality items from many vendors including wonderful, handmade children’s clothing, antique jewelry, gifts, kitchenware and much more. 

Another shining example of a fine shop on Cherry Street is Handworks. Their motto: “A few of our favorite things,” exemplifies the care they use when selecting the unique items they sell.  Products include names such as Peter’s Pottery, Etta B and 3E Design Pottery with minimalist-
style dinnerware in neutral to vibrant, patterned decorative pieces. You will also find handmade jewelry, original artwork and even Arkansas-made items like honey, pottery, soaps and soy-based candles.
