Charleston~ it is a beautiful place~ I lived downtown, on John's Island, in Mount Pleasant, Goose Creek and North Charleston. Best thing to do is to walk around battery in the evening- I worked at the market and the bakery at Harris Teeter, modeled for the Gibbs art group and other artists, nannied... lots of adventures.
Sweetgrass is used by native Gullah/Geechees for a number of utilitarian items with baskets being the primary ones. This tradition of sewing the baskets was brought to the Sea Islands from West Africa and continues today. www.gullahgeecheenation.com
