- The Pink Crocodile
Sugar, spice, and sass abound at this local Park Circle gem. From cute mementos made for the home to jewelry, collegiate details to baby gifts, The Pink Crocodile has you covered.
This boutique is especially perfect for finding all the stylish Clemson and South Carolina stuff you need to look and feel your best on game day (win or lose!). We also love that they carry a huge selection of ultra-moisturizing, honey-infused Naked Bee lotions, salves, and scents.

- The Station Park Circle
Reclaimed goods reign supreme at The Station. Here, you’ll discover an eclectic marketplace featuring the work of nearly 30 local artisans. Be sure to check out their incredible selection of vinyl and vintage textile art. And if you’ve got a bit of that gypsy soul ‘60s style, you’re sure to find a funky futon or next-level lamp to reveal your grooviest side.
Everything old is new again—and every piece at The Station is packed full of unique personality. Bonus points for the awesome selection of vintage textile art. Far out, indeed.
- Roadside Blooms
North Charleston’s go-to for dazzling floral arrangements also offers home décor delights just begging to become the new conversation piece of a cozy home. The uniquely curated shop at Roadside Blooms offers statement-making pieces like succulent and airplant terrariums in geometrics shapes, handmade jewelry, and locally made soaps and bath bombs ideal for smell-good stocking stuffers.
And if it’s to grandmother’s house you go this holiday season, you can bet that Mee-Maw will elevate you to favorite grandchild status when you bring her one of the charming grab-n-go all-American grown bouquets available exclusively at Roadside Blooms.
- Black Octopus Mercantile
Lowcountry meets high creativity at this East Coast-cool pop-up shop. Coastal vibes rule the scene at Black Octopus pop-up shops within the city with an incredible selection of stand-out designs adorning super comfy shirts and “omg-where’d-you-get-that?!” hats.
We’re big proponents of the super soft oversized fleece throw decked out with all kinds of funky South Carolina-centric insignia like palmettos, sea creatures, shades, and guitars. Perfect for tucking under and binge-watching a day’s worth of Netflix shows (or those tear-jerking Hallmark holiday movies!)—get one for your main squeeze, your baby sister, or yourself to live your best life while getting your cozy on.
