The holiday season is all about giving. For most people, that means giving gifts to your family, friends, and office Secret Santa picks. But if that gift happens to be from NEST, you’ll also be giving to female artist or artisans from around the world.

As part of the King Street Shop Walk, Cynthia Rowley is hosting a NEST pop-up shop. NEST uses microloans and mentoring to help impoverished women to create, market, and sell their crafts. At the King Street boutique, you’ll find accessories like earrings and necklaces priced from $20-$40.

The event runs from 5-8 p.m. on Fri. Dec. 10. For more information on Charleston’s NEST chapter, e-mail Harper Poe at
