Attraction and General Location

Dog models — adoptable pups from Pet Helpers of Charleston — will hit the runway in over-the-top, bedazzled outfits. Local dogs and their owners are welcome to participate as well. Checking out this event would definitely be barking up the right tree, and is an adorable (and not so sweaty way) to enjoy the Bridge Run.

You can also celebrate the Bridge Run this year with 40 Days of Bridge Run, which started in February and ends on race day, Sat. April 1. Each day the Bridge Run will raffle away prizes; raffle tickets are $20 and when you buy one you're entered to win over 200 prizes valued at over $50,000 in total. All of the prizes were donated by sponsors and 100 percent of every raffle ticket benefits one of the Bridge Run's 15 charities.

It's not too late to register for the run, either. You can still sign up for $55. Oh, and this year every finisher gets a medal — we're all winners, y'all.

  • Natalie Chanin is the mastermind behind Alabama Chanin, a lifestyle company.
Charlestonians are in store for a fashion and eco-friendly exhibition as eco-fashion pioneer Natalie Chanin, in collaboration with The Commons owner Erin Reitz, hosts a trunk show at Worthwhile, March 27-29, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

The pop-up will feature creations from Chanin's Alabama Chanin, a lifestyle company that produces housewares and clothing, and Reitz' The Shelter Collection by The Commons, featuring glassware and wheel-thrown ceramics.

Though the products are different, the collections are both inspired by Southern tradition. Alabama Chanin uses 100 percent organic cotton jersey fabrics and repurposed/reclaimed materials in all of their designs, inspired by Chanin's degree in Environmental Design, with a focus on industrial and craft-based textiles.

The Shelter is a modern line of glassware and ceramics inspired by the mud hut dwelling, which The Commons interprets as the strongest architectural shape which uses the least amount of materials. While Chanin’s company is based in Alabama, Reitz designed The Shelter Collection in South Carolina and produced it in North Carolina. In addition to steins, glasses, and pitchers, this trunk show will feature wheel thrown plates and bowls from the collection.

You can always check out good from The Commons at Fritz Porter Design Collective, located at 701 East Bay St. Suite 106.

  • Flyer by Camela Guevara
This Saturday a number of Charleston’s local vendors will come together to showcase their work and products in a mini bazaar at The Daily. The Farmer and Artisan Market, which takes place from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., will feature an eclectic gathering of craftspeople, artists, clothiers, and farmers.

For sale will be everything from body care products from vendors such as Motherland Essentials, Sacred Circle Herbal Apothecary, and The Contents Co to clothes from Red Rose Vintage and Tuff Stuff Vintage, who will be on site with never-before-seen, old-school apparel. And if you think that flyer art is beautiful (because we do), then grab some prints from artist Camela Guevara, who will also be at the market.

Of course, this part-farmers market will feature healthy eats, too. Ambrose Farm, Spade and Clover Gardens, and GrowFood Carolina will contribute to the bounty at the event.

The Farmer and Artisan Market is open to the public, and brings recognition and support to some of Charleston’s favorite local vendors and small businesses. Check out this art-exhibition-meets-farmers-market event as vendors offer their work and ware to the public.
