The next day I searched a quilt shop and found one just down the street from the old market.
People, Places & Quilts has two locations. One in Charleston and one in Summerville (which was on the way home...YAY!). The Charleston location was a cute little shop, but more on the small side. They carried a lot of the Kaffe Fassett collection. I saw a lot of historical reproductions, too. I was told about the Summerville Shop (which is their sister store) and decided to check out it. Wow, I'm sure glad I did!
The People, Places & Quilts is located in an old hardware store and has cute painted rocking chairs outside on the front "porch"...okay, sidewalk. Right when I walked in the door, I was really excited.(I haven't been in a quality quilt shop since I moved to South Carolina.) Creeky, old wooden floors with many rooms and long hallways. This looked like a much larger shop and had tons of fabrics to look at. I could touch and feel everything. Fabric is my crack. I love it.
Glad I stopped....really nice shop.
Summerville was a really cute old town. When you get off the freeway, there's the normal stuff like chain stores and restaurants. Drive down about a mile or two and you'll end up in the old downtown. I stopped in a large antique shop. I found a few things, that I still regret not getting, but drove the car (instead of the truck) that weekend. Can't wait to go back. I'll let you know when I find my next place :)
