Does your city do a shop local / be local event? We do!
Charleston has always been this amazing community that supports and encourages each other – and now we are able to make it known via the internet. yay
I’m a strong believer in supporting your local economy where you live.
Shop those boutique stores, find local artists, embrace the creativity within your home city.
Gift giving is the best time to really go on the hunt for new stores to buy those special things for those you love.
Here are a few things i’ve found made in Charleston that would make excellent gifts for some people on my list:
charleston coffee roasters | coffee…duh
i think everyone has a caffeine addict in their family…right?
why not buy from a local place that sells those magic beans – plus they ship to your relative if they don’t live local!
callie’s biscuits | hot little biscuits of deliciousness.
i’m sorry everyone, but my town does it the best.
this place – PURE HEAVEN – buttermilk goodness that will melt in your mouth and make you eat way too much.
i have too many favorites – but i especially love the cinnamon biscuits – which in store you can get a box of three different kinds to try for like $10 – worth. every. penny. – and the pimento cheese nom nom nom.
