Vintage clothes, throwback prices

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Thu, Nov 16, 2017 at 11:31 AM


If the words "Black Friday" give you heart palpitations — either from excitement or utter dread — then you're going to want to swing by Red Rose Vintage the dark day after Thanksgiving.

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 424 King St., shop men and women's vintage styles for $1, $5, and $10. Tuff Stuff Vintage will also be in on the super duper deal action. It's great for Black Friday vets who love a good deal, and hesitant consumers who hate crowded malls but love vintage threads.

Lowcountry Local First's Buy Local Month starts today


Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Wed, Nov 15, 2017 at 1:07 PM


You've heard it before and you better believe you'll hear it again — it's really, really important to buy local. Don't believe us? Well, now's a good time to start paying attention to where your dollars go. Starting today, Wed. Nov. 15, through Fri. Dec. 15, nonprofit Lowcountry Local First hosts their annual Buy Local month.

According to LLF, when you support locally owned businesses, 45 percent of your dollars stay within the community, as opposed to 14 percent when you buy from out-of-town businesses.

The premise is incredibly simple: Buy your holiday gifts from locally owned businesses. Easy enough right? LLF has made it even easier by offering both a rundown of upcoming holiday markets, as well as participating businesses, on their website.

For example, if you're looking for locally made clothing and accessories you can hit up Croghan's Jewel Box, Artisan Tees, and J. Stark. And for the most fun (we think) way to peruse a large number of local artisans and crafters, be sure to check out the overwhelming number of upcoming holiday markets — stay tuned for our full guide to holiday markets, hitting stands next week.

Until then, remember to put your money where your house is.

Anyone who has ever been part of a wedding — be it bride, guest, caterer, or photographer — knows the planning and execution can be daunting. And, no matter how much you DIY it, the event ends up being pretty damg pricey.

This year, Charleston Wedding Week (CWW), along with Breeze by Yoj Events and sponsors Diamonds Direct and Henri Daussi, will be offering the ultimate wedding giveaway package to help make your dream day as dreamy (and easy) as possible.

The package by Breeze by Yoj Events will include catering with beer and wine, photography, music, florals, tables, chairs, linens, personalized stationary, an officiant, and a "stylish reception getaway" a.k.a. a chic car that drives the couple from the reception to their honeymoon suite. The wedding bands will be provided by Diamonds Direct and Henri Daussi.

Starting Nov. 1, enter the competition by sharing a photo of you and your betrothed along with a description of how you met and why the Lowcountry is your ultimate wedding destination at

Then, share your post on Facebook and encourage your friends to vote for you online. The winner will be announced during CWW (Jan. 24-27, 2018) and no later than Jan. 28.

While the giveaway is going to save you some major dough and horrid headaches, don't put your wallet away just yet. Caveats: you have to have your wedding within a year of the announcement (by Dec. 31, 2018) and the winner is responsible for venue selection and fees (the venue must be located within the greater Charleston area). You also must use Yoj approved vendors — we think they know what they're doing, though (the proof is in the pictures).

Shop St. John Knits at Gwynn's of Mt. Pleasant trunk show this weekend

Simple luxury

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Thu, Oct 12, 2017 at 12:04 PM

  • Provided
Founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray, St. John is an American luxury house specializing in "effortless, alluring, and refined clothing." While the clothes they offer today are worn by the likes of Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, and Hillary Clinton, the company has humble beginnings — a knitting machine inspired Marie to design dresses for herself, and the brand has since been a "coming together of craft and couture based on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress."

Shop the couture line this Friday and Saturday at Gwynn's of Mt. Pleasant from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Gwynn's, founded in 1967, is an independently owned and operated luxury department store offering men's and women's designer clothing and accessories, including labels like Jimmy Choo, Escada, Tom Ford, and more.
