I am always looking for ways to support small, local and female owned businesses in our community, especially around this crazy time of year. I am determined to continue to take the extra step to make choices about supporting local + small businesses + women owned when possible. I am also a big fan of gifting experiences: a drink, a workout class, or a meal with a friend is often much better than a material item. So gift your bestie, your honey, your mom, or your backup one of the below, don your JP faves and head out to support some of these Charleston spots:
Classes at The Works / The Works Cycle - My go to workout destinations for some sweaty, soulful fitness. Small, local, and women owned! The trifecta in my book.
A New Style from Shoes On King - Fave stop for shoes right on King Street. So many great brands. S,L,W
A Bottle from Monarch Wines - Yummy newer wines are their expertise. Justin is an absolute genius and knows so much about the wines in the shop. Several of the natural wines he suggested are from women wine makers- which I love! I would pick up some natural wines to gift share with friends and family this holiday season. S,L
An Arrangement by Flowershop CHS - THE most gorgeous flowers of all time. S,L,W
42 Pressed - clean candle scents + cool letter pressed maps by ever talented Jackie. S,L,W
Concert Tickets at The Refinery - experience gifts are always a fave! S,L
Gift card to The Whale - this spot has endless options for the beer savant + a variety of food trucks available to enjoy a nice evening al fresco. S,L
Little black dress + my favorite Climate Beneficial Duster from Vincent James for above mentioned night out.
