Tis The Season To Shop

Dec 8, 2011

I wanted to share with you guys a fabulous website and store (for locals) for holiday shopping or selfish shopping (which we all like to do). Novel. is one of my favorite shops in Charleston. They offer an amazing collection of hand curated and one of a kind finds. Such a wide variety of fabulous things from jewelry to fine paper to baby goods. They have it all at this store and best part all the items are made by 4 local girls (Lauren Lail, WayWay Allen, Jane Pope and Liza Cleveland)! I have the pleasure of knowing WayWay and is she is a real doll- she has a fabulous blog filled with family, interiors, food, and her designs. It is one of my favorite daily reads- Check it out HERE You will be hooked!

But back to the important thing, shopping! The website www.novel.bigcartel.com is only up for the month of December, but the store, Novel. (341 king st. suite b) is permanent! New products will be added to Big Cartel throughout the month of December so keep checking back in for the latest and greatest! For all you locals there will be a holiday show December 15 with discount coupons for the first 20 people as well!!!! So go get your shop on in store or online ladies!

Here is a little sneak peek at the goods from each of the 4 lovely ladies who contribute to this store. I showcased my favorites and they are all available online! I just ordered the Custom Silhouette for Sterling! Love it! I really want the Vintage Gucci Purse too but I guess I do need to be shopping for others right now…

Jane Pope Cooper-Balboa Jewelry and Jane Pope Collection

Lauren Lail-Library: Archives of Fashion (vintage clothing and accessories)

Way Way Allen-blue chickadee (custom art and hand painted baby goods)

Bon Vivant-Liza Cleveland (custom stationery and paper goods)

Hours for Novel. are Monday through Friday 10:30 to 3, but if you can’t come by the showroom during regular hours, the girls would be happy to meet you by appointment. So no excuses not to shop!
