52.5 is vital to the Charleston/King St. shopping experience, as it is one of a handful of businesses preventing the district from turning into an outdoor mall.
52.5 fills the gap left by all the big stores, i.e. more obscure music for true music nerds, of which I am one. It is not designed to fulfill the needs of people seeking their Top 40 fill. It is where I found Tom Waits on vinyl and a collection of Mark Ryden prints. It is where I can see cool artwork and buy used CDs and vinyl, plus the latest cool and more difficult to find indie stuff. Whenever I actually have money, that's my first stop!
One of the finest gems on upper King.
I disagree with the above review. 52.5 is a great, funky, local place to poke around in and see what you can come up with. i have found some great obscure records in the 25cents bin and some fun nostalgic bday presents for friends. Its not a place to find everything that you are looking for, but something you never thought to find.
SUCKY LITTLE OVERPRICED PLACE NEVER HAVE ANYTHING I EVER WENT THERE FOR I AM SURPRISED IT IS STILL THERE.
The best Cupcakes & Pies I've ever had. If you ever need a good treat for a special occasion or for no reason at all, this is the place to go. I've tried a lot of the other highly talked about places in town and so far none of them can compare. I highly recommend the chocolate bourbon pecan pie.
I came up with the name 'Porter, Smoked' and now I've been banished to the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands, very far from all that delicious beer. Wish I'd thought of a more creative title for such a heady brew. All they have out here is San Miguel and Red Horse. Maybe I can find some fresh tuba on Guam... I <3 Saipan! Cheers Dave & Jamie
So many great gift ideas! I got my mom a great birthday gift. Also, I brought my niece and nephew when they were in town and they loved eating hotdogs and icecream at the lunch counter. Great place for tourists to get some relief from the heat! alassor, Charleston
Thought the store was real unique. Lots of food items and toys, etc that reminded me of when I had young children. It is a dream world for a chlld with all the neat toys and candies. The food from the fountain was great, especially the ice cream.
Fantastic moonpie ice cream. Brings back great memories of my Dad's store. Great place to shop for stocking stuffers. Very friendly staff. Love those mini moonpies and the mint cookies are out of this world.

I love the Yorktown! This WWII ship was in the Battle of Midway. They have an amazing Medal of Honor Museum on board..
An excellent place to shop but I seem to have missed out on the wind tastings.
If you're into processed, flavored oils, then this is your place. If you're looking for cold pressed, unfiltered traditional oils, then you'll be disappointed. But I guess like most of the stores on King Street, they cater to the tourists. I've been able to find traditional oils (filtered) just as good in local grocery stores (not Whole Foods or Earth Fare). Oils are like wine, its really a personal preference.
Great products! I love their store and the service is great! Def. a must see while shopping on King! Try the 18 year old and the Black Truffle Oil!
Amazing work Rebecca does. Can't wait for the workshop!!
Don't worry, we're still here!
Nice to find, friendly, accommodating, huge selections all types of music... and even used CD DVD and VCR sections. They'll order what you can't find.
Alas, closed before I could try them.
