Tourist in my own town! I LOVED my visit to the City Market

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!
