What Services Does Your Business Offer?

I have a retail shop showcasing over 20 creative, local and small business brands. You can expect to find fine art, unique gifts, stationery, and creative home decor. I also have a small gallery where I host emerging artists for three-week exhibitions. We kick off each show with an opening event that is free and open to the public.

I offer regular creative workshop programming through my studio. Guest teachers can rent the space to teach their craft. We have everything from candle making and indigo dying to flower arranging. We keep our workshops updated on our website.

The Stono Bottle Shop opened within our space just this past week. We offer fine wines and craft beers. Selections changing monthly. We are launching a wine CSA program soon as well.

A Deeper Dive

Why Did You Choose to Open in Charleston?

I fell in love with Charleston while I was attending CofC from 2003-2007. After graduation, I moved back to Maryland, but I had the opportunity to make Charleston my home in 2012. This city is my happy place, I am constantly inspired here. There is a wonderful and supportive creative community here, which has been invaluable to my art career and small business.
