Belk is coming back to King Street. Susan McWatters, VP and Regional Store Manager at Belk announced yesterday that the company will open a pop-up at 473 King Street (formerly Ellington Boutique) March 5th, showcasing their new Crown and Ivy label. The line features women's clothing, accessories and home decor. Belk will have a tent in Marion Square during Charleston Fashion Week, and will be featured in the Thursday March 17 runway show. The pop-up store is expected to close March 29, but we’re hoping they’ll bloom where they are planted, and stay with us.
Mead is a delicious wine made from honey. It’s believed to be the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world, and picks up the characteristics of the variety and region of its honey source. According to Eater, the number of meaderies in the US has more than doubled in the last three years, making mead one of the fastest growing alcoholic beverage categories in the US. Enter our local bee visionary, Ted Dennard, whose new Savannah Bee Company location at 270 King Street will bring mead to Charleston. Taste it, love it, take it home. The store will be as beautiful as it’s former Lower King Street location, and larger.
