Last week we wrote about buying local — it really is important, and easy to boot. The best way to shop small is to head to a local (you'll see that word a few more times, FYI) holiday market or pop-up shop. We've done our best to list everyone we found — if we're missing a market that you're hosting please let us know so we can update this list. Email with deets.

This Weekend, Fri. Dec. 9-Dec. 11 (and 12!)

Cone10's Holiday Hooha will feature works from the studio's potters from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Fri. Dec. 9.

The Ashborough Holiday Market takes place this Sat. Dec. 10, from 12- 4 p.m., on Ashborough Avenue in Summerville.

The Charleston Flower Market on Maybank Hwy. holds a special Saturday market from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

On Sat. Dec. 10 from noon-5 p.m. the Tree Elves visit Crooked Crown with trees in four different sizes. There will be live music, pop dipping and decorating, festive drinks, and more.

We don't pick favorites, but ... we're really excited about Edmund's Oast's Beer Hall Holiday Bazaar on Mon. Dec. 12 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. You can peruse goods from vendors like Alison Brynn Ross and FK Vintage, listen to live music, and grab holiday gift packs — the kind made up entirely of beer.

Next Weekend, Thurs. Dec. 15-18

Freshfields Village on Kiawah hosts a fall sip and stroll on Thurs. Dec. 15 from 4-7 p.m.

M. Dumas & Sons celebrates 100 years in Charleston next year — which is a pretty big deal if you ask us. In honor of that, and the holidays, they're hosting a number of special events. On Thurs. Dec. 15 from 5-8 p.m. the store hosts a his and hers shopping event, with items from ZAGS Sunwraps, shopTAXIDERMY, Element Candles, and more. On Sat. Dec. 17, M. Dumas & Sons hosts Elizabeth Joyce Monograms for free monogramming — and the first 100 people in the store will receive a free gift with their purchase.

Get your weekday holiday market on at Vintage Coffee Cafe's market, held on Thurs. Dec. 15 from 5-9 p.m.

Summerville's Coastal Coffee Roasters hosts a comics, crafts, and Christmas fest from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sat. Dec. 17.

Ibu welcomes Beatrix Ost for trunk show, book signing, and talk tomorrow night

Global goods

Downtown's textile, apparel, and home goods store, Ibu, hosts Beatrix Ost, an artist, film and theater producer, designer, actress, and writer, tomorrow night from 5-7 p.m. We first wrote about Ibu last year, when Susan Hull Walker, the company's founder, spoke at Charleston's Creative Mornings.

Ibu isn't just a store — Walker considers it a movement, an organization that advocates for and sells global woman-made textiles. And tomorrow Ost will show her jewelry line, Article 22, which represents the same global interests as Ibu: The pieces of jewelry are hand-crafted from 80 million undetonated bombs dropped on Laos. Tomorrow's event kicks off Ost's collaboration with Ibu, where custom pieces will be available at the Ibu showroom and online. Ost will also be signing copies of her book, Grey Book: The Philosophy of Style.

Park Circle Local Brand coming soon to a market near you

Locals only

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Tue, Nov 22, 2016 at 9:02 AM

If you live in Park Circle, or frequent the area, you may have seen some neighborhood pride being flaunted in the form of hoodies and hats. Created by PC resident Missy Johnson, the Park Circle Local Brand (PCLB) features various designs, including a skull shaped logo that's filled with forks, knives, mugs, a bike, squirrel, etc. — hallmarks of the neighborhood.

Johnson debuted some products at September's North Charleston Harvest Festival, and she just got approved to sell her merch at Celadon's holiday market on Dec. 18. Peruse more PCLB goods on their website.
