Freshfields Village is buzzing with all of the new additions which means more reasons to keep on coming back. Along with village veterans like The Resort Shop (where this dress is from), new businesses like Elizabeth Stuart Design, Studio 33 Kiawah, Blue Mercury, and and Fuji Restaurant have popped up over the summer.
Elizabeth Stuart Design is known in the Charleston area for her sophisticated selections in home decor, art, and accessories. Her satellite shop in Kiawah is a curated mix of gorgeous jewelry from the likes of S Carter and cool shades by AM Eyewear (pictured here). Her offerings are a nice price range making it easy to find gifts or splurge on yourself.
Blue Mercury was a no-brainer top open up, with no other makeup stores in the area of Kiawah and Johns Island. This national store has shops everywhere including downtown Charleston, but this Freshfields Village location was much needed. You can find the best makeup and skincare lines out there, and also get spa treatments like facials, waxing, and massages. I had to try out some of their products and was so happy with the makeup application they gave me.
Another void in the area was a Japanese restaurant and our prayers have finally been answered with Fuji. Their creative selection of sushi rolls, delicious salads, and appetizers will have you wanting to come back over and over again. This is now on the top of my list for sushi in Charleston, and the best part is they can make any custom roll you want. My friend Libby of Plate South and I were on a roll (pun intended) sampling everything we thought we could fit in our stomachs. If you go you have to try my favorites – Harumaki, Tuna Martini and the Avocado Salad. As far as rolls go it just depends on how adventurous you are, but I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
If your looking for a relaxing shopping and dining experience then Freshfields Village is your answer. Fall is always a great time to come out to the Village so follow them on Instagram to stay in the know of all of their events and happenings.
