Venturing into the Unknown – A Walk Through Charleston’s History at Magnolia Cemetery

This past Labor Day weekend, Randy and I decided to take a bike ride to a place neither of us knew of, inspired by a mention of it in the new “My Charleston” a magazine-like publication of the Post and Courier.  Magnolia Cemetery, just off the beaten path in “The Neck” area of the Peninsula, is home to a 128-acre...

Recession? What Recession? King Street is Booming

Recession? What Recession? King Street is Booming

Since my office is located at 214 King St, I pay close attention to what is happening on the entire stretch of the historic street.  It is a constantly evolving animal, subject to joys and disappointments, complaints about loss of local boutiques and chains moving in.  But the fact is, when I first came to Charleston 15 years ago, King...

What’s Your Favorite Constellation?

What’s Your Favorite Constellation?

Last night, my husband and I decided to take an evening walk around the Battery to get in some exercise while avoiding the daytime heat.  It was 9PM, the sky was a deep blue black, the tide was high and the water was lapping so close up to the Battery wall you could almost touch it.  The wind came in...

Why I am Honored to be Nominated for Charleston’s Marketer of the Year

So What is That Thing? The Old Brick Facade Behind Harris Teeter

If you live here or visited Charleston, you have probably biked or driven past this strange looking brick facade in ruins, right behind the Harris Teeter grocery store.  What is it? you mutter to yourself…why is it still standing there all by itself?

Update on Handy Man Specials in Wagener Terrace

There are none.  That’s the update. Well ok – there are a few, but they are either overpriced, or not in a great location.  When I last wrote about the handy man specials in Wagener Terrace in May, continuing a series I have been writing for almost a year now, the situation was not much different.  Since then several have...

Small is the New BIG – Popularity of Diminutive Spaces is on the Rise

Small is the New BIG – Popularity of Diminutive Spaces is on the Rise

Small spaces – BIG lifestyle is the new choice for many… I caught this article on MSNBC today about the rise in popularity of smaller spaces, not only for Baby Boomers but also for Generation Y.  Lifestyle and proximity to culture, restaurants, shopping, services are seemingly more important than having room for your Costco purchases.  Here’s an excerpt: “John McIlwain,...
