Bj Stadelman, owner of Haegur mobile plant shop, featured on Apartment Therapy

A verdant oasis

As all good Millennials know, a space is not a proper place until a well-watered houseplant finds its spot on a mid-century modern wooden table.

  • Provided
We jest, but really, houseplants are not only aesthetically pleasing accessories, they also bring the outside in, with certain species capable of reducing pollutants. Local green thumb and houseplant enthusiast Bj Stadelman, owner of Charleston's only mobile plant shop, Haegur, was featured yesterday on Apartment Therapy.

Stadelman's 1,723 square foot downtown rental house is, not surprisingly, filled (tastefully) to the brim with plants. We're talking wall plants, potted plants — even ceiling plants. In the article Stadelman describes his style as "muted folky boho" drawing inspiration from arboretums and conservatories, "I'm basically trying to live in a tree house."

In addition to his open floor plan, clean lines, and plants aplenty, Stadelman's house also features local art by Carrie Beth Waghorn, his grandfather's antique Swiss clock, his grandmother's antique chest, Proud Mary textiles, and some refinished "street finds."

Want to make your apartment or home half as cool as Stadelman's? He advises that "A beautiful home is so easily attainable. I find my friends and guests ask most about pieces I refinished, thrifted, or found over pieces I style from big box stores. Those 'cheap finds' are worth way more when you spend some time with them, making them perfect. Most of my plant knowledge has come from trial and error. Don't be discouraged by loss — shit happens."

Head to King Street Collective for the only sewing class you'll ever need

Home Ec for millennials

Posted by Katie Molpus on Tue, Mar 13, 2018 at 10:51 AM

Who doesn’t occasionally lose a button on their favorite coat or, I don’t know, rip their pants climbing out of the car seat on the way to dinner? (Anyone? Just me? Alright). Well if you’ve been there before or are just looking to pick-up a few useful sewing skills, on March 25 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. King Street Collective has the perfect class for you — and it's just $25.

Local seamstress and designer Evelyn Budiansky (a.k.a. Evelyn DeVere) of Evelyn’s Alteration & Design will walk guests through basic hand-sewing techniques for common clothing woes, covering everything from lost button repair to dragging hems. After this, you’ll be sewing up a storm in no time.

King Street Collective, opened in November of 2017, is a collective space operated by local artists. The building serves as a studio for makers and artists of all kinds to create, and also gives artists a space to share their work with the community. They offer classes, pop-ups, gallery shows, and other special events for floral design, embroidery, hand lettering and more.

Donate your old prom dresses to The Cinderella Project now through next Wednesday

Drop off locations all over town

If you're like me then you have some old dresses stuffed in the back of your closet — you may be holding onto them for nostalgia's sake, or perhaps you think one day you'll fit into tenth grade's homecoming yellow satin number (I mean, maybe?). Regardless, you know those gowns would probably serve someone else a little better.

Enter: the Cinderella Project Charleston. This local nonprofit collects donations of new and gently used formal dresses, gowns, purses, jewelry, shawls, shoes, and accessories and provides them to financially challenged high school students at the annual Cinderella Project Boutique. This year the boutique will be held at West Ashley's John Wesley United Methodist Church on Sat. March 17 from 10 am.-2 p.m.

  • Provided
Learn more about donating — you can still drop those aforementioned items off at drop off locations Downtown, James Island, Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley, Summerville, and North Charleston until March 14 — online at
