Savannah Bee Co. celebrates their new location, Mead Bar and all their sweet honey products tonight at 5:00 pm on King Street. There will be food, a raffle and $5 mead tastings, with all your favorite people. Come, celebrate Savannah Bee.
Savannah Bee Co. is a beautiful place, where everything they do blossoms from their love of honeybees. Passionate founder Ted Dennard, who might just be on hand tonight, said "Our products deliver, they have real bee products in them, and I'm not sure everybody can say that." The honeys from Savannah Bee are curated by Ted, who knows the best of the best based on where the nectar comes from, and what gives it flavor, taste and color.
In addition to varieties of honey, you can try the bee products like luxury Royal Jelly Body Butter, shampoos and conditioners, Bee the Balm Gift Sets and our favorite, Orange Blossom Honey Hand Soap.
270 King Street
5 - 7:00 PM
While you're there, pick up a little honey to make Author Karen White's favorite drink, The Southern Queen Bee. We think Rosemary or Lavender Honey would be excellent, but you can taste and choose your own.

Ibu: Susan Hull Walker founded Ibu in 2013 to work with women’s cooperatives around the world, encouraging economic self-sufficiency and showcasing global textile traditions. At her newly built brick-and-mortar location in downtown Charleston, you can buy the wares of these female artisans, from vintage-silk tunics to ikat clutches. 183 King street; ibumovement.com
What do you want your clothes to say about you? ibu, soon to open at 183 King Street, has a unique philosophy on dress:
"We believe clothes are for more than keeping out the cold; they are our second skin, our corporal vocabulary, our wordless exclamation! From a conventional approach to dress (which starts with corporate designers dictating fashion from the Outside In), ibu advocates a zestier approach (one that starts with your colorful Interior life and moves Out, thereby planting you, flower fruit and stem, in the world).
ibu also believes clothes can connect people: the artisan with the ally who wears her handmade story. So much more intimate than factory to mall, we love the subversive warp and woof of women writing with threads and compañeros across the globe wearing this poetry out loud. And with panache."

The shopping frenzy begins at Thanksgiving and it doesn’t let up until merchandise return season the week after Christmas. Every year there are crowds, lines, lists and more activities than sane people should ever sign up for. Every year many of us resolve to make the holidays smaller and simpler, just to let them get away from us yet again.
Sure it’s tempting to stay home in your jammies, flip up your laptop and do all your shopping online, but where’s the fun in that? Wrapping gifts is even better than receiving them, and there’s nothing social or personal about that cardboard box the UPS guy brings with a “fond” message printed on the receipt.
This year it’s King Street to the rescue.

Welcome Cariloha. It’s not a typo. Cariloha (from the words Caribbean and Aloha) is
a recently opened King Street shop that features a unique assortment of products all
made from bamboo. If you’re thinking fishing poles and flower arrangements, think
According to Cariloha’s website, “Bamboo is largely considered a woody plant;
however, it's really a true grass. It can be found in many parts of the world but is
primarily grown in East Asia and South East Asia, where it’s used for everything
from building materials to food sources! Bamboo’s soft, silky feel, its antimicrobial
qualities, its ability to take colors well and its breathability are designed to appeal to
those who seek the very best in natural luxury. Bamboo means soft, cool and clean.”
And green. Bamboo is cut and soaked in an environmentally friendly solution that
breaks down the fibers, which are dried into parchment-like sheets. They are milled
into fluffiness, spun into threads and voilá, cloth twice as soft as cotton and nicely
comparable to cashmere and silk.
The beautifully appointed, compact and charming space at 341 King Street is now
filled with soft apparel, bath items, handbags, bedding, blankets, towels and robes.
They even have those ubiquitous second skin yoga tanks and pants seen everywhere
on people with perfect bodies. And some that aren’t. ‘nuff said. Stop in, look around
and say hello to husband/wife managers Ryan and Ashley Porter. It’s a friendly,
pretty place. And soft. Very soft.
