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.

This week I visited Ann Reinert’s Yellow Door Gallery on King Street, just upstairs from the Reinert LePrince Fine Art Gallery at 179 King. I wanted to see the MJ Green archival metal prints featured at the last 2nd Sunday on King Street, before they were all gone. Green’s unusual treatment of black and white captured my attention wasn’t printed on metal, “The Bridge 1” is a dramatic black and white photograph on paper featuring the Ravenel Bridge boldly shot from below. One might think a bridge is a bridge, but ours has a way of playing with light so much so that it looks different every day. MJ caught it looking ethereal. She obviously loves it too.
The Yellow Door Gallery has other wall art, some by Reinert’s famous impressionist husband Rick, and those bold colors and textures are expertly presented with wearable, tasteful items like jewelry, scarves and even bath products. You can tell Ann is having fun with this place. Vintage-inspired hand crafted jewelry by Robin Goodfellow Designs features colorful swirls of crystals, rhinestones, and pearls along with glass and metal beads. Rick Hunter, Scott Simmons, and Otter Rotolante contribute handblown and torchworked glass in a rainbow of colors that float invisibly on window shelves for a striking effect.

I can’t wait for C. Wonder to open. It’s Christopher Burch’s design-forward everything-under-the-sun shopping concept. And I do mean everything. Clothing, footwear, jewelry and accessories, housewares, home décor, gifts and “delightful surprises at every turn.” When a company uses the phrase “our design teams create…” it’s original and I’m there!
C. Wonder replaced Puma at 285 King Street. Puma was never my first choice for athletic shoes because Mike at The Extra Mile is so nice, has what I need and never steers me wrong. Plus he doesn’t ask the obvious question, which is why do I need running shoes.
C. Wonder will open at 10:00 am on Friday, September 13 to much fanfare. You might want to cue up early, but just in case you miss it, they’ll do it again on Saturday. There are gifts for the first hundred customers each day, gifts with purchase, refreshments and something called a Wheel of Wonder that I want to spin. I’d like to buy an O, Pat, as in “Oh how nice, I won something wonderful!”

In a recent interview for Manner of Style the owner of Niche Interiors, Matthew Bees, divulged his not so typical artistic and decorative influences. Bees, a University of Alabama alum and avid sports fan to boot, claims that initially he had intended on pursuing a career as a lawyer. However, in his own words, "It only took one semester of Latin and Philosophy for me to find my way over to the Interior Design program," and the rest is history.
Growing up in rural Southern Alabama, Matthew drew his inspiration to pursue interior design from a combination of his grandmother's background as a floral phenom and his parent's entrepreneurial spirit. Matthew claims he,"took note of those works, and I began to experiment. However, my parents were both entrepreneurs and busy starting and running their respected empires. So our property was well manicured and low maintenance, similar to what one finds surrounding a hospital. So I took to the woods. I would spend hours on my four wheeler searching for wild flowers and grasses. Each day I would bring my finds home and arrange them for my mother. (Lucky her!!!) Sometimes she would bestow my creations on her office staff. They just couldn't believe I had done these floral masterpieces." Thus began his journey to develop his passions into a lucrative career in interior design.
Throughout his adolescence he had the pleasure of working for several event design firms. These opportunities helped him cultivate and hone his decorative and interior design skills. Bees argues that event design became somewhat depressing, "Here I was, designing these amazing spaces, hours and hours on end, up and down ladders, running to beat the clock, the drama, the sweat, the weight loss all for a few hours of splendor. I needed something more, and when I say more, I mean more permanent. I wanted to design something that stood the test of time, not a mere few hours. So I set out to open Niche."
In his description of Niche, you will also find why the interior design firm is sure to be a Charleston mainstay: Bees knows, "there is a new movement/momentum in Charleston that caused me to open Niche. These persons are finding themselves inheriting their parent’s homes and their parent’s furnishings. While Great Grandmothers camel back Chippendale sofa is a classic, Mothers butlers’ tray coffee table is less than desirable. Why not add a stylish coffee table that is pleasing to a younger aesthetic? That is what Niche is all about. Interpreting the old in a new way. The juxtaposition is the NEW classic."
