Don’t Miss These Shops on King Street!

Texture Design Co. and Be the Change Boutique are two new shops on King Street in downtown Charleston.  I’ve already visited them a few times!  The ladies that own them are so welcoming and fun and the items they have for sale are unique and make the best gifts.

Texture and BTCB share a space at 218B King Street.  Go say hello!Texture&BTCB-1
Emily, a dear friend of mine, owns Texture Design Co., a fun little stationary store and Etsy shop.  You’ll find gifts (for someone else or yourself) in her shop, many of them inspired by Charleston.  I also love that Emily supports other local artists.  One is Heartwood Creative Co’s – those are her Charleston signs.

Be the Change Boutique is right next door and they have a wide variety of items which are always changing.  What I love about this store is that everything you purchase has a story behind it.  And your money goes towards a greater purpose!
