Walking up King Street the other day, we stumbled upon an adorable little shop that we’d never noticed before. Turns out Lily has only been open two months, but not many people have discovered it because of the construction that’s been going on on its front stoop. Well, the construction seems to be finishing up, and you’ve got no reason to ignore the lower section of King. Lin Isler has stocked the store with gorgeous products from mostly locally-based (S.C.) companies. But you wouldn’t guess it from looking around. The pretty candles, luxurious bath products, handmade stationery, and home accessories look like something you’d find in a swanky boutique in just about any city. And Lin’s photography is playful and vibrant. Stop by 196 King Street, or call (843) 577-7633 for more info. —EJ
