Local design-lovers got all in a tizzy last fall when they heard Grace Bonney would be making a Charleston stop on her book tour. The creator of the popular design blog Design*Sponge, Bonney and her talented crew have earned countless fans across the country with regular web features like home tours and before-and-afters. The book quickly became a sort of bible for home design aficionados, and locals showed up to the signing clutching their coral-colored tomes ready to be signed by the author. Bonney turned the store into a craftstravaganza, helping fans make hand-carved stamps. Here's hoping she'll be back in town soon.
