Barrelli Barber opens in the Cigar Factory June 15

"Proper Grooming for Gentlemen"

If you prefer to roam the streets as a gentleman (as opposed to a regular ol' man) — we're talking properly shaved, hair trimmed, shoes shined — then Barber Barrelli, set to open June 15 in the Cigar Factory, might be just what ya need.

Barrelli owners Peter Evans and Laran D’Eustachi worked together for more than 20 years at day-spa and salon Stella Nova, learning about beauty service and retail. They're applying this knowledge to Barber Barrelli: "We know that men are looking for high quality services but are looking for something different than the feminine salon/spa concept ... the needs are very similar but the aesthetic and the approach are unique," says D'Eustachi.

The upscale barbershop will offer haircuts, shaves, waxing, hair color, beard and neck trims, facials, shoes shines, and high-quality men's products available for purchase.

There will be an opening celebration June 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Cigar Factory. The event is free and open to the public and will include live music, food and drink, and a cigar lounge. Proceeds from sales will benefit Windwood Farm and Family Services.

Cannonborough Collective hosts grand opening on St. Philip Street this Saturday

Tassels, balloons, and flowers — oh my!

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Thu, May 4, 2017 at 10:27 AM

You know what Charleston has been missing? Balloons. Fear not, you can get your fill of balloons and more at the new Cannonborough Collective, a balloon and gift shop located at 185-A St. Philip St. Started by local bloggers Charleston Weekender (Liz Martin) and The Tiny Tassel (Mimi Striplin), Cannonborough Collective opened just this week and will celebrate with a Derby Day grand opening party on Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. with mint juleps and a TBD food truck.

In addition to balloons and gifts, Cannonborough Collective features a bouquet bar by Fetes de Fleurs. A bouquet what? Yep, Fetes de Fleurs sells flowers by the stem so you can make your own arrangement at a price point that works for you.

Collectives seem to be popping up left and right in this city, with the threesome at 308 Coming St. (J. Stark, Sisal Creative, and Stems) and last month's One Love Design Collective coming to mind. We love to see collaborations in this city — especially in downtown buildings where we can only imagine that rent ain't cheap. Here's to hoping these collectives, and pop-ups in general, keep thriving.
