Mount Pleasant

Lucky's favorite stores in Charleston's Mount Pleasant neighborhood!


The strength of this shop lies in its ability to offer really good, really simple pieces, like chic shifts and classic A-line skirts.

Grazi's Shoe Café and Wine Bar

The concept here is pretty brilliant: Grazi's is part shoe shop and part wine store, meaning you can sample a glass of Shiraz in the ivy-strewn courtyard, then go inside to trawl for shoes from Frye, Report, Coconut, and Naughty Monkey.
14 Resolute Ln., 843-216-2087,

Out of Hand

The shop's statement is "the art of creating," but that could easily apply to its enchanting verge-of-chaos feel: It looks like an attic overstuffed with fanciful glassware, perfume, and jewelry.

Page's Thieves Market

Proprietress Linda Page scours the Eastern seaboard to find waiting-to-be-refurbished antique furniture—glass-knob dressers, old dentist cabinets—to haul back and sell in her former sawmill of an emporium. (Note to the allergy prone: In addition to stellar deals, Page's Thieves is also home to a bevy of rescued cats.)
1460 Ben Sawyer Blvd., 843-884-9672,

Products: Antiques
Type of Store: Boutique


This boutique is adept at stocking the kinds of things that you first laugh at the sheer goofiness of, then decide you can't live without, like canisters of wooden sticks imprinted with fortunes (shake it up and one spits out).
