Tavern & Table on Shem Creek!

Tavern & Table on Shem Creek is my “go-to” with friends and family! Their menu features a variety of Lowcountry flavors and I love that they support local vendors, fisherman and farmers. Their rustic atmosphere is elegant and comfortable, not to mention the spectacular view of the creek!

Pro-Tip: Be sure to visit the outdoor bar during sunset! You will likely get to see the dolphins frolicking as the fishing charters are returning to the docks with some left over treats. And did I mention their amazing handcrafted cocktails???

Living in the Old Village/ Old Mt. Pleasant neighborhood poses one big challenge… where do my friends and family stay when visiting?  I recently had family visit, and we booked a room at the Shem Creek Inn. It was FABULOUS!  Completely renovated and only a bike ride away from home, they were thrilled with the accommodations!

Just minutes from Downtown Charleston, and Shem Creek’s only waterfront hotel, you will love this laid-back waterfront destination and treasured local secret! Call 843 881 1000 or visit their website for information on reservations and more.

Major Hats and Suits! Located at 102 Royall Avenue

Our neighborhood holds so many little gems, and I just happened upon one of our best!  I was so happy to meet Mr. Anthony and visit his store, “Major Hats and Suits” located at 102 Royall Avenue (next to the Sweet Shop).

Mr. Anthony starting selling hats 20+ years ago, after attending church one Sunday and realizing the ladies of our community could benefit from a resource to find a variety of new hats!  Ten years later he opened his shop and has been a trusted source for not only the ladies from church, but for such organizations as The Hat Ladies Of Charleston, The Red Hat Ladies, The Hat Divas and more!

And hats are not all he sells, there is a selection of jewelry and men’s and ladies’ suits on hand as well.  If would like a suit not in stock, Anthony can have one delivered in about 4 days.

Open from 10am-7pm Mon-Sat, the store itself is adorable and features a variety of hats in all colors and styles!  Prices are reasonable, ranging from about $40-$100.   I felt like a kid in a candy shop!  Seriously, it is a really fun place, and wearing a hat can add oodles of flair to your outfit!  And let’s face it ladies, what’s not to love about a new hat for Easter or such fun events as The Charleston Cup?  So be sure to pop in and say hi or “like” his page on Facebook.  Mr. Anthony will be happy to help you with the perfect hat for any occasion!
