Charleston’s Buy Local Month

November 15 – December 15

As the holidays approach, you can pick up thoughtful gifts while supporting local businesses as part of Buy Local Month. Lowcountry Local First created this as a way to encourage people to interact with Charleston’s businesses, exploring opportunities to share something unique with their loved ones this holiday. By going to local businesses and makers, you help give back to your neighbors, while also creating a strong local economy and sense of place unlike any other in the world.

The sense of place that we have in the Lowcountry – all that makes this place unique – is largely thanks to our retail businesses. Local shops, both service-and product-based, are what build our culture. It’s the places where you can fix a shoe, find the perfect dress, buy a coffee or a new book, and connect with neighbors. — Lowcountry Local First
