There is a wide range of merchants, but a consistent theme was- appeal to what a buyer likes, not selling what a true value is........I was floored by a amber colored vase in a pattern manufactured in to the 1970's (Yorktown-look it up) selling for...More

Almost exclusively antiques reflecting Charleston history, but some great pieces. We’ve been antiquers for 40years and there are some wonderful pieces here if you are looking for Federal or European pieces, but have a thick wallet. We felt prices were high, but perhaps not considering...More

The shops are clean, well lit, display merchandise nicely. However, I found prices here to be very high on most things. Although I wouldn't hesitate to counter-offer, when a price starts very high, you know they won't come down too far. It's too bad since...More

Few noteworthy shops. Not much variety available in any of the shops. Given the history of this Deep South area you would expect more choices. Expensive offerings!
