Return to Charleston
Been there? Go again. Our favorite Southern lady reveals more charms you’ll absolutely love.
“Shoppers have long been seduced by the wares of Charleston’s merchants, with the crème de la crème located on King Street. But these days, the spotlight is on Upper King, that section of the thoroughfare marked by Spring Street to the north and Calhoun to the south.
“…More than 75 neighborhood merchants—including some of the country’s top home-accessories retailers and interior designers—recently banded together to form the new Upper King Design District. They’re a tight-knit group, says Susan [Lucas, owner of Upper King shop The French Hare], committed to offering the best products and customer service. It’s impossible to list them all, but Lesesne, B’ZAR, Dwelling, Maine Cottage, and Cupcake rank among our favorites.”
