Shopping

Since everyone has saved so much money by staying home, it is time to get out and boost the economy. Many of Charleston’s favorite retail shops are open for business, through their storefronts and online. As an extra incentive, join the exclusive Team Charleston Savings Pass. This pass provides you with discounts and coupons for many of your favorites, and some Undiscovered places.

Speaking of Undiscovered places, let us entice you with some ideas. But before you head out, please remember to follow the guidelines in place by each establishment. This can include wearing a mask (plenty of Charleston establishments are selling fashionable masks for all occasions), limiting in-person shoppers and social distancing from others.

Serving the Charleston community since 1985, the Art Emporium is a favorite among local artists. They have a 2000 square foot art gallery and are known for custom framing. Art Emporium carries all things art from pottery, glassware and stained glass to jewelry, photography, and more. It is the best place to get art supplies for artists of all experience levels.

With 48 years of Rock ‘n’ Roll under their belt, Budget Tapes and Records is one of the most unique stores in Charleston. You will find everything from records to incense to posters and more. They even have a selection of tie-dyed face masks for sale.

Speaking of records, have you visited Elk City Records? The staff at Elk City Records will help you find personal favorites and explore new-to-you genres of music. The shop offers a vintage amplifier and turntables, so you can listen to your soon-to-be purchase. In addition to popular genres, they have thousands of jazz, classical, folk, blues, show, and gospel albums. You are sure to find something fun to listen to.

The WV Marketplace, located inside the historic Capitol Market, is a great place to find WV made products. This store has some of the best WV food products to help spice up your home chef skills. You can also find locally made dog treats, for your favorite fur babies. One of our favorites is the selection of Blenko Glass, which makes for great gifts.
