Charleston Shopping

It is not surprising that antiques are one of the biggest shopping attractions in Charleston, a city more than 300 years old. An abundance of antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and specialty stores can be found along King Street, including Saks Fifth Avenue. Shops and stores also can be found along nearby Broad, Church, E. Bay and Meeting streets.

Specialty shops, boutiques and open-sided buildings with vendor and artisan booths can be found along N. and S. Market streets behind Market Hall, 188 Meeting St. This area, known as The Old City Market, was deeded to the city by the owners, who specified that it always must remain a public market.

Reproductions of 18th- and 19th-century Charleston antiques are available at the Historic Charleston Foundation's shop at 105 Broad St. Royalties generated from the sales are used to further the foundation's restoration work.

Such major department stores as Belk, Dillard's, JCPenney and Parisian can be found in nearby shopping malls: Citadel Mall, US 17 and SR 7, and Northwoods Mall, I-26 at US 52.
