Nestled comfortably on a side street in Charleston’s West Side, just half a block from Washington Street, we find a nifty little shop dedicated to providing cozy apparel, accessories, and home goods for you and yours. Our local spotlight in today’s 2018 PopCult Gift Guide is Kin Ship Goods.
You’ve probably heard of Kin Ship Goods, a brand of apparel, accessories, and home goods designed by Dan Davis & Hillary Harrison. They are based in Charleston, returning to their roots after having started their business in Louisville.
Their shop is filled with clothing and mugs and other cool things of their own design. In their words, “Our goods are inspired by starry nights, peeling paint, vintage keepsakes, imperfections, labors of love, and early mornings.”
Their products have been featured in major magazines, and have been seen in television shows and movies. Their brick and mortar shop is located at 613 Tennessee Avenue, in Charleston, just around the corner from Gonzoburger and Fountain Hobby.
Kin Ship Goods is currently closed for a couple of days as they’re gearing up for Black Friday, when they’ll be releasing nine new designs, and bringing back five classic designs. They’ll also kick off their biggest sale of the year, with 25% off everything from Friday, November 23, to Monday, November 26. This is in their store and at their website (and the website is still open).
All weekend long, at the store, Kin Ship Goods and Base Camp (the printing company next door) will have new products, sales, giveaways and snacks. On Black Friday they will be open from 11 AM to 7 PM. Small Business Saturday (November 24) sees Vandalia Donut Company set up outside the store, and the first 100 people at the door receive a free goodie bag, plus they’ll have in-store giveaways. The store isn’t usually open on Sunday, but for this sale they will be there from 11 AM to 7 PM. Cyber Monday (November 26) sees the sale wrap up, with a few bonus items sneaking online.
Kin Ship Goods is a great local source for gift ideas from T Shirts to mugs to sweatshirts and more. You’re bound to find a great gift here, or you can just purchase a gift card, in store, or online.
