Jennifer Davis is a force majeure in retail Charleston real estate. She brought us Warren on King, Carolina on King, Savannah Bee Company, Alex and Ani, Ibu, American Apparel, Rebecca Roller Rabbit, and Best Chefs America. Coming soon, Nola Couture at 363 King Street, Benrus at 162 King, Bevello at 285 King. She helped Christophe Artisan Chocolatier find their highly successful expansion location at 90 Society Street, which I personally frequent and appreciate. The courtyard is perfect for enjoying French Press Coffee and upstairs there’s more than enough room for a meeting.
Those are just leases. Jennifer’s Domicile Real Estate Brokerage sold the buildings housing Gap, Bebe, Groucho’s and Five Guys, Earthbound Trading Co., Husk, The Hidden Countship, Eli’s Table, Charleston Shoe Co, and a bunch of the ones where they placed the aforementioned lessees.
Icing on the cake, Jennifer bought her own building at 163 King Street.
Made to Measure Specialist Jim Bruce and Fabric Specialist Blanche Housekencht of Gladson Fabric Mills will be at the Brooks Brothers King Street StoreWednesday, February 25. They will provide one of the elite products offered by the Brooks Brothers Company, custom suits, which are ordered at trunk shows throughout the country.
During these one-day events the specialists perfect fits, take measurements, and work with fabric selections to produce suits that are personalized for each client. Appointments may be booked before, during and after store hours by calling (843) 723-9405.
"This is significant because it's the first such event to be held in Charleston since Brooks Brothers opened in 2005, and it's the first such event in the country this year," said Mary Lou Brazeau, Manager of the 205 King Street store. "We're fortunate to be chosen and have access to these talented experts and the array of fabrics, especially at this time. Suits ordered during the event will be ready by Easter."
Le Creuset is French for “if you love to cook you’ll love using these tools.” Not really, but it’s how many of us feel. Watch The Food Network; many of the host chefs use their exquisitely produced cast iron pots and pans. Many of our talented Charleston chefs use them, too. I don’t claim cooking proficiency, but I use it, and there really is a difference. Not to mention it’s so pretty.
In Charleston we are fortunate to have a larger-than-most Le Creuset presence. Their North American Marketing Office and Culinary Center, L’Atelier Le Creuset, is at Ripley Point. For a long time, their signature store sat cozily at 241 King Street between Starbucks and the Pauline Sisters Media Center.

My favorite memories of the holiday season are probably the same as yours. Food, music, shopping, gifts, decorations and a little nip in the air. I’ve always loved accommodating family from out of town and spending time together, especially hitting the mall in packs, trying not to lose anybody while we shopped for gifts. We’d have lunch and talk endlessly while accomplishing little that was on our lists. The exercise was repeated several times even after Christmas, because then the specials were even more so and there was always something to return or exchange. The stuff we shopped for is long forgotten, but the memories of togetherness, teasing, laughing, and confiding secrets are dear.
If like me you weren’t fortunate enough to grow up in a city like Charleston where downtown was historical and many businesses were owned by neighbors and friends, join me in making up for lost time.
Last month I told you about several events that combine shopping, food and holiday magic. It’s worth repeating because let’s face it, ‘tis the season. On December 5th there’s an early evening wine tasting event in a dozen stores chosen for their range of product offerings and excellent hospitality. From North to South it’s House of Sage, Bob Ellis, Shooz, Copper Penny, Finicky Filly, C. Wonder, Candlefish, Talbots, Rapport, Brooks Brothers, Roberto Coin and Vestique. A marvelous array of choices for any shopping excursion but to make it even better, event partner Southern Wine & Spirits has chosen a list of excellent wines for your tasting pleasure. Wines will be from Napa and Sonoma Valleys, including Duckhorn, Ferrari Carano, Chateau St. Jean, Trefethen, Stags Leap and others. Add to this hors d’oeuvres by some of Charleston’s finest food purveyors and you have a truly winning evening.
