    A lovely shop of Charleston and Low Country items operated to support the Historic Charleston Foundation. The best book selection we found in the area related to Charleston and southern life. Profits support the preservation efforts of the foundation and purchases are exempt from the 11% tax. Hard to believe this lovely spot was a former gas station.

    Across from the market. We never fail to make a purchase here. There are always new (and truly different) pieces to admire.

    Nice market with garden vegetables and food vendors and hand made items. Bonus was the street entertainers performing nearby.

    Such a fun experience! We did this as a group of friends from college and had a great time. Our candle expertise was so knowledgeable and we learned a ton while having fun! We were able to pick up our candles the next day (they can also ship if you’re not able to do this). All th scents were so cool and it was so neat to do this activity! You can also bring a bottle of wine or champagne to enjoy while making your candles!

    We go here for treats each time we visit Charleston. They have freshly made candy, fudge, pralines and caramel apple. We especially love the large chocolate turtles.

    Grabbed some tasty provisions to take back to hotel on a rainy day in Charleston. The staff was extremely helpful in selecting a perfect assortment of meat, cheese and wine!

    When you first walk in you are greeted by wonderful warm aromas and scents. A plethora of spices and fine teas await you! I especially enjoyed the local spices/spic blends. The tea selection is large, generous and varied. I ended up leaving with several different spices, salts and teas. The staff were friendly and engaging. They also make their own pimento cheese, which apparently the city of Charleston is obsessed with (sorry I hate it, LOL) Will definitely visit this place to replenish each and every time I'm in Charleston.

    I intended to buy a couple different mini chocolate bars to try different flavored and ended up getting a box of their specialty chocolates. They have so many different flavors and they are beautiful to look at. They also had more macaroon flavors to pick from than some other places we went, but we didn’t try any of them.

    I've heard of Savannah Bee Company before, I've even bought some of their products, so I wasn't planning on going to this store for general shopping. A friend recommended going for their mead tasting, and it was amazing. The gentlemen who "took us through" the tasting were extremely knowledgeable about mead and really told a story through our 45-minute tasting experience. He was even nice enough to provide us with a tasting of an extra mead that he personally enjoyed even though it wasn't a part of the tasting flight. I enjoyed the tasting and one of the meaderies in the tasting so much so, I bought a bottle of it when I got home. This was awesome. Very inexpensive.

    We had the pleasure of taking the ghost tour with Joe, our knowledgeable and entertaining guide. His delivery and enthusiasm were excellent. The tour lasted about 90 minutes, and we were on the last tour of the evening. The city has an entirely different feel after the shops have closed, which added to the overall experience. If you take this tour, be prepared to walk over uneven surfaces in the dark, and bring water. Joe made the tour exciting and his delivery was captivating. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in some of the darker (but not scary or creepy) history of Charleston.

    So fun to get a doggie welcome while out shopping. Quality merchandise and friendly staff. Be sure to take the time to get some doggie love at Lime Blue!

    This boutique is a hidden gem ! The owners are very welcoming and they have curated a beautiful selection of handcrafted italien items. Best place downtown Charleston to shop for unique gifts.
