Charleston, You're My Obsession

AUTHOR
I love writing about what I'm obsessed with—this time around, it's all local, all Lowcountry. Pickles, modern art, baby clothes, and all....

My current obsessions, Charleston-style. 

 

Pixie Lily
These are by far my favorite baby clothes. They are adorable and feel so soft.  I just went to the sample sale a few weeks ago and had the pleasure of meeting Leda, who created the line and she was such a doll. These clothes make great baby gifts. If you don't live in Charleston, the clothes are sold in tons of baby boutiques and they have a great online shop-www.pixielily.com

 

 

 

Rewined Candles
I just got one of these candles for Christmas and it smells amazing. Each candle is poured into a recycled wine bottle, such a cool concept. Fragrances include Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, and Champagne.  I have the Pinot Noir one and it smells heavenly.  They sell them at Vieuxtemps on King Street.

 

 

Art by Kate Long Stevenson
I have to admit, Katie is a dear friend of mine.  She is such an amazingly talented artist.  I want to own every piece she paints.  Her artwork is sold locally in many galleries around town or you can check out her website www.studiokate.net

 

 

Cold Pour Pickles
I am hooked on these pickles from Charleston Pickle Company. All of their produce comes from local farms, and is organically grown. They use a “cold pour” method to make their pickles, which means that because the cucumbers and vinegar are not cooked by heat, they don’t need a whole bunch of preservatives or salt to keep them fresh until they reach your plate. These pickles taste so fresh you won't want to eat the preserved processed kind again!
