I have profound respect for any local retail business that can thrive and evolve over time, so of course I’m a big fan of Celadon because they are celebrating 23 years. Steve Lesniak opened Celadon in 1994 to bridge the gap of traditional southern furniture stores to a more global eclectic view. This home furnishing store turned lifestyle boutique has a little bit of something for everyone. You can’t help but get overwhelmed with the mix of global finds, upmarket furniture, one-of-a-kind antiques, designer lighting, accessories, vintage rugs, quirky gift items, handcrafted jewelry, and fun kid’s items. The buyers travel to exotic countries like India, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, China, to find the most beautiful home furnishings and accessories.
Every year Celadon throws a big birthday party and this year they have outdone themselves by featuring a pop up with 27 vendors including jewelry makers, fashion designers, food vendors, artists, and entertainment. You don’t want to miss out on the all the fun this Saturday, November 11th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at their Mt. Pleasant location – 1015 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. You can start your Christmas shopping early with local artisans and brands like Babiators, Barracuda Moon Jewelry, Flowershop, Francis + Benedict, Haegur Plant Truck, Harrison Blackford Art, HART, Jahde Leather Atelier, Laura Deems Art, Miles Purvis Art, Paige Feigley Art, Penelope Design Studio, Red Rose Vintage, Cindy DeAntonio, Sam Rueter Art, Suite 33, The Contents Co., The Goldbug Collection, Theodosia Jewelry, Van H. Rings, Wash with Water, Way Way Allen; and if your hungry and thirsty don’t worry because Bootlegger Coffee, Coastal Crust Pizza Truck, Rudi’s Wine Shop, and Spun Cotton Candy will be there too. The fun doesn’t stop at shopping, drinking, and eating because tarot card readings by Franklyn Smith, face painting for kids, and live music by The Urban Roots Reggae Band will be on site too.
Van H. Rings always has the prettiest gems and I loved mixing them up with The Goldbug Collection. I can’t walk down the street without someone commenting on my Francis + Benedict skirt. Scoop one up before your favorite print and size sells out!
Adorn yourself with local favorite Theodosia Jewelry.
