Charleston is full of hidden gems and The Hidden Countship is no exception.  Tucked away on an unassuming street in the heart of downtown Charleston, this Italian centric boutique stands on it’s own.  As you walk in the door you’re transported into another place and time.  The store, which is set in a 2 story historic house, is filled with handcrafted artisanal goods from Italy.  Donatella and Giulio Della Porta are the owners and curators of this one of kind boutique.  The couple from Umbria, Italy fell in love with the charm and beauty of Charleston and decided to plant roots in 2010.  Their unique merchandise is a mix of jewelry, clothing, men’s accessories, and home goods that are handmade from local artisans in the central region of Italy.  The enchantment continues as you walk upstairs and are surrounded by family heirlooms and artifacts from the Della Porta family, dating back to the Medieval period. Donatella and Giulio’s passion for sharing their heritage and Italian made goods with Charleston are what makes this boutique so special.  View more to read about their story.
