Where & Why: Cannonborough Collective

Recently I had the pleasure of sitting down with two local entrepreneurs, Mimi Striplin and Liz Martin of Cannonborough Collective. It's since become a favorite place for client and family gifts due to some of their beautiful and unique offerings. Currently the only balloon & gift shop located on downtown Charleston's Peninsula, right in the heart of Cannonborough at 185A St. Philip Street. The space offers a shared space that allows local brands to rent space to sell their merch. After hours, Cannonborough Collective occasionally serves as a crafter’s workshop catering to locals and bachelorette parties.

Check out the video to see what these two are up to or pop in to one of the most inviting shops you'll find around town!

"Cannonborough Collective is a place that’s for locals by locals, and we want to share the space with other Charleston makers. We’re not business moguls, just two regular gals who were spending so much time at markets and pop ups that we wanted to have a space to call our own.  We love the existing shops and eateries in the neighborhood and are so thrilled to have joined the Cannonborough/Elliotborough community.
