Okay, so let’s admit it, we never spend enough time in our own town until family or friends come for a visit. So yesterday I was reminded (again) why I love living in the wonderful place! The City Market is so much fun and it is looking better than ever! As one of the nation’s oldest public markets, I am thrilled to see such preservation of time-treasured customs and history mixed with new creative ideas by vibrate entrepreneurs. With everything from jewelry, artwork, Charleston spices, clothes, hats, bags, and so much more. Such a fabulous celebration of what makes our town special. And of course, sweet grass baskets and pineapples are everywhere!

What will you spend your time doing this summer? We plan on spending quality FAMILY TIME in our neighborhood. I feel certain there will be a few golf cart parades, sack races, donut eating contests, tie dyeing and an occasional CAKE WALK! Happy Summer!
