Toys, Toys, Toys!  Just in time for Christmas.  If you haven’t had a chance to stop by Charleston’s newest toy store, Magnifilous Toy Emporium on Upper King Street, you have no idea what you’re missing.  Their emphasis is on unique, quality built, long lasting imaginative toys for all ages (for pets too)!

Put a quarter in the Nickelodeon from the 1840s and listen while you shop.  A mini carousel imported from Spain and a giant K’Nex Ferris wheel round out the exciting decor.  My favorite is the seven-foot tall gumball machine.  As you can see, I met many friendly stuffed animals while riding on Noah’s Arc.  But the real fun is just watching all the visiting children’s look of awe.

The minute you walk in you’ll know you’re in a magical place–for this holiday season and beyond.  Happy shopping!

I am so excited to announce the opening of Charleston’s newest hot spot, Tease (Blow) Dry Bar at 430 King Street. It’s the first of its kind in the city. You are in and out in less than 45 minutes with a wash, blow dry, and an amazing style of your choice. Choose from 6 different distinct hair styles and no appointment is needed.   Maybe you are a trendsetter or a goddess? The choice is yours. There are also some great add-ons and specialty styles to consider as well.

Tease Dry Bar also gladly welcomes groups. This is a perfect start to your wedding weekend shared with your bridesmaids.  Relax, have fun, and enjoy each other’s company before “the” big event.  They call it “party primping.”

The team can help you coordinate on-site catering so you do not have to worry about a thing. Let them help you create a stress free day. They are conveniently located just a few blocks from our hotel. Beauty and relaxation is just steps away from the Francis Marion.
