Mobile plant truck Haegur opens pop-up shop on King Street next month

Planting roots

Posted by Christina Burnley on Thu, Jun 21, 2018 at 9:25 AM

A post shared by Hægur Plant Truck (@haegur) on

Bj Stadelman is the local business owner of Haegur, a mobile plant nursery that’s taken Charleston by millennial storm. For those who’ve stopped by Stadelman’s truck, you know his space exudes a level of Instagram cool that one could only dream of pinning to their Pinterest board. Well get ready, because come July, Stadelman is opening a summer plant shop at 1102 King St.

This thriving business started with one big step: Stadelman quitting his 9-5. Taking inspiration by his own design, Stadelman quit his job as a hair stylist, and became the coolest plant stylist in town. The green guru took his passion to the streets (literally) and opened his Cushman Truckster up to the wandering locals of Charleston for his first shop in 2017. With immense popularity, there was only so much his little plant shop could hold, and that’s when he created the mobile nursery he is known for today.

Fast forward a year later and Stadelman's planting some roots in the King Street market. This July, go get your green goods from the upper King spot; follow Haegur on Instagram to stay up-to-date with Stadelman's moves.

Check out the new Lina Rosa jewelry collection at Mac & Murphy Thurs. June 21

Best little earrings that could

Posted by Christina Burnley on Mon, Jun 18, 2018 at 4:12 PM

A post shared by Lina Rosa (@linarosajewelry) on

This Thurs. June 21, head over to Mac & Murphy from 5-7 p.m. and take a first look at Paulina Rodriguez’s latest collection in her jewelry line, Lina Rosa. Rodriguez is a Charleston based jewelry designer whose childhood passion transitioned into a full blown career with her one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. She’s a self-taught bead weaver, whose design complexity influences her to spend anywhere from one to twelve hours threading individual beads and creating her uniquely stunning jewelry.

Last year Rodriguez took home the style runner-up award in Garden & Gun's Made in the South awards. In her interview with G&G she said, "I was so obsessed with beading when I was a teenager. I had a beading desk in the living room so I could watch TV while I worked.” 
And that obsession's paid off; just a few days ago the Lina Rosa Instagram page featured Wendy Williams rocking a pair of custom earrings, Silver Mary. Not to mention Lina Rosa's shout out in the City Paper in our Best of Charleston issue (please see: Best Little Earrings That Could).

Salty chic

You don't have to have a view of the coast to get a taste of the sea. Now, thanks to  local businesswoman Katie Poole, mermaids of the land can officially shop surfer chic threads at French Quarter women's boutique, Bennie + Coco.

A resident of Isle of Palms, Poole is also the brains behind event planning firm The Burlap Elephant and cocktail bar service Batch. Inspired by her own beachy digs, Poole has created a boho, ocean-side vibe inside her Queen St. shop.
  • Provided
Bennie + Coco will sell up and coming brands including Banjanan, James Perse, Chan Luu, The Great, Made by Dawn, 9 Seed, Madeworn, Rollas Jeans, Banner Day, and Carolina K. The shop will also carry swimwear, accessories, and lifestyle products.

And Poole's wares aren't solely inspired by all things coastal. She knows what she's doing in the fashion world: the Richmond, Va. native earned her degree in Fashion Merchandising from the University of Alabama, managed boutiques in Virginia and Charleston, and even worked at Vogue.
