Hi!  I'm in Charleston as well, I've been living here for about a year-and-a-half now.  I haven't had any luck at all finding good craft stores, really.  I've been to the store on King St. and I know about the Hancock's and the AC Moore in North Chuck, but that's about all I've found... I say we definitelt exchange tips here if anyone happens upon anything good!  Smiley

It depends what you need... there are a few good (but very expensive) bead shops around, like The Beaded Venus and The Country Bumpkin in Mt. Pleasant.  Actually, now that I think about it, the Country Bumpkin has more than just beads; I guess that is just the reason I go there.  Don't be put off by the name: they have some fun stuff.  Those are really the only places I know... I shop when I visit friends as well. Sad

hey ya'll, I'm new to the area (military wife) and even newer to craftster, but I totally love both! and, you may not believe this, but I had never been in any kind of craft store up until a few weeks ago, and let me tell ya... I stayed for hours (even though I didn't have any money  Tongue). They didn't have any in Eastern Kentucky, and my family deplored going to wal-mart. I made do with what I had... I had a set of children's encyclopedias, and one volume was a craftbook. I looked at it the other day and the poor thing is so beat up, all the pages were dog-eared and the spine was so bent you could hardly read the title. Not to mention all the stains and smudges... I remember my Mom gripeing at me because I used to cut up her sheets to try to make the costumes... I thought I could use a stapler in place of sewing! Anyway, I picked up crocheting again just a couple weeks ago, my first try since I was about 14. And I bought this really cool (and overpriced) fabric with pin-up girls on it, that I'm thinking of fancying up a couple of tote bags with. Oh, and is anyone else here in the military or married/related? I saw an ad on-base about a play, and was going to see about getting involved with scenery or something...   Grin

I looked for them all over charleston and couldn't find them.  The maker is Alexander Henry

We got the hawaiian pin up girls.  I also LOVE the camouflage girls--perfect for the military, right?:

hey, I'm in Charleston too! I was wondering if any of you guys had heard about the "Christmas in the South" or whatever, the art fair at the exchange park? have you been before, or participated?

There's a little bead store in N. Charleston between Hancock Fabrics and A.C. Moore, it's called Gail's beads. The Green Dragon also sells delica's and they're behind the mall. I wasn't overly impressed with Gail's beads, they weren't very nice and prices made me want to cringe and find a new hobby. I wish we had more craft stores around here, and now I hear that Wal-Mart might be doing away with their fabric selection, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I wish there were more places in Goose Creek, 'cause I hate having to drive into N. Charleston, it's always crazy and people suck over there.

Mienna, I have to say I'm sort of glad your impression of Gail's was the same as mine.... they have driven me to online shopping for the same reasons that you gave.

Have you been to the Country Bumpkin in Mt. P?  It's even farther for you, but they have a nice selection.  The people aren't *nice*, but they just kinda ignore you.... which, given the alternative, is much better.  I also think it's quite a bit cheaper than Gail's.  I love Beaded Venus, but it's WAY too expensive.

For as rich as the arts community is here, the support and supplies of it are fairly dismal, imo.
