Just stopped by the Buy/Give Local Bazaar going on now at 10 Storehouse Row at the old Navy base. Lowcountry Local First organized the shopping bonanza of an event, inviting a great many of our homegrown artisans, nonprofits, musicians, and food vendors to ply their wares.
Dos Rios were playing some Latin tunes while I did some serious Christmas shopping — don’t tell anyone, but my daughter got a hula hoop and the cutest little handmade skirt, my niece got a pair of earrings from Leslie Madden, my dad got a Crisis Ministries T-shirt (and a donation in his honor to the shelter), and my son got some homemade hot chocolate and a mug from Holy City Chocolate. I guess my husband and I’ll share the okra pickles from Legare Farms.
I also saw my wonderfully talented neighbor Anne John, who is a potter at Cone 10. She’s showing off a nice selection of her work — which would make for a very affordable Christmas gift (hint hint).
Tonight’s bazaar goes until 8 p.m, so grab the friends and family and head on up there. And don’t forget to take the City Paper’s Buy Local Pledge and win!
