When you think about shopping in Charleston, you have the option on thinking "greater Charleston area".  While inside the historic city on the peninsula, you’ll find everything you came for along King Street and anywhere near the Market.  But once you take a look beyond the peninsula, you’ll be headed across the Cooper River to Mt. Pleasant to shop as well.  Mt. Pleasant, once a sleepy small town will fulfill your need for not only retail therapy, but bistro hopping and authentic architecture.  Don’t miss the Old Village neighborhoods that look and feel like Charleston in the 1950’s, with milleneum coastal living additions to make life sublime overlooking Charleston Harbor.  (It just doesn’t get much better...)  Mt. Pleasant boasts great boutique shopping along Coleman and Johnny Dodd’s boulevards as well as an upscale Towne Center on Highway 17 near the Isle of Palms Connector.   Favorite home store?  Celedon on Johnny Dodd’s Boulevard.  Favorite browsing?  Tippy Toes, Blooming Village at Seaside Farms Shopping Center, Isle of Palms connector.
