One of my favorites in the King Street cast of characters is Larry Gillespie. Larry and his wife Shannon own Campo Marzio at 318 King Street. As the story goes, the Gillespies were traveling in Italy a few years ago when Shannon popped into a tiny, colorful artisan gallery while Larry picked out a bench where he could chew the scenery. Enough time passed that Larry decided to check on Shannon’s whereabouts and he found her, still in the tiny Campo Marzio shop, piling up a years worth of gift giving for their return to America.
Shannon has an eye for art, having worked with some of the country’s finest public galleries. Here in Charleston she serves on the Board of Directors at the Gibbes. Larry has a keen business sense honed in 32 years in operations and new business development at Coca Cola. Together they saw promise in Campo, which combined a long history, trend-setting accessories, beautiful gift packaging and affordable price points.
