Summer Day Shopping & Coffee Downtown York South Carolina
Good afternoon! Oh, & happy August!
I hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend. I spent almost all of my weekend reading Where the Crawdad’s Sing and teared up when I finished. Next, I have The Great Alone sitting on my nightstand waiting to be read next. I appreciate all of your book recommendations and can’t wait to get through a lot of them. Looks like we’ll be getting a lot of rain from the hurricane and that calls for a cup of tea and reading.
One of my favorite things to do lately has been stopping into local coffee shops and boutiques around the area. It’s important to show them support during these times, and I’ve loved all the fun items I’ve found for my home and closet along the way. I wanted to hop on the blog today to share a quick little visit to York, SC. It’s about 35-minutes outside of Charlotte, and it’s an adorable town with hidden gems.
One of my favorite spots is a boutique called Southern Pagoda. It has everything from adorable clothing, purses, gifts, home decor, and more. Every time I stop in there, I find something I just have to have. This Kimono and my purse are from there. I had them order the bag in a few more colors because it’s my favorite. If you live in the Charlotte area, definitely make the drive to check it out.
Supporting local businesses right now is so important. Many of them were shut down for long periods of time, and you can still support while keeping your distance as well as wearing masks while inside the stores. Down the street, we stopped at Southern Touch Bakery.
How do you even choose?
They had the cutest little shop inside with a huge menu. I’m looking forward to stopping back in there for lunch. The cafe & bakery is an old gas station and there is a ton of outdoor seating. I bet it’s going to be so cute in the fall. You’ll know where to find me.
The most delicious black coffee!
I just realized that most of my recent purchases have all been blue and white. I ordered some clothes for a bed and breakfast kyle and I are staying at for his birthday, and every dress was blue!
I can’t wait to explore more local coffee shops and boutiques that have popped up around here recently.
