Upon arrival, each guest is greeted with a glass of champagne or sparkling cider. A vintage style "Tea Party" is set and one of our knowledgeable Candy Shop Vintage team members will welcome you, pass out the champagne and give you an introduction to both the shop, some of our special vintage pieces, our popular Charleston Rice Beads and how they are made, as well as a brief history of the neighborhood and its local shopping scene. Guests will then have the opportunity to indulge in a a cup of Charleston Tea and a number of complimentary sweets sourced from local bakeries as you shop, socialize and take photos. One of our team members will discuss the history of some of our vintage pieces in the shop and answer any questions about Charleston as well as make suggestions about ways to explore the city like a local. The entire party will enjoy 15% off on anything purchased during the event and leave with a gift bag as a souvenir of there time with us, including some samples of Charleston Tea, their very own tea cup as well as a hand drawn map of the neighborhood. Due to the small size of our shop, we can only accept the number of guests pre-paid and designated by your booking.

Deirdre

I am the owner of one of Charleston's few locally owned boutiques and have resided here for over ten years. As such, I am able to bring together my love of the city, my love of vintage, and my knowledge of the southern fashion scene with its plentiful vintage dealer into a wonderful, charming jewel box of a store in the heart of Downtown Charleston. By combining several of Charleston's favorite pastimes - drinking, eating and shopping - with a little bit of history and flair, I have worked with our Candy Shop Vintage to give you a memorable, special and uniquely local experience.
