King Street, in the heart of the Charleston, SC peninsula has received national attention for its fine dining, shopping, antiques, galleries, bars and boutique shops.  With a tapestry of locals, students, tourists and collectors strolling the streets, this stretch of Charleston has become a foundation in the landscape of this historic city.

A tradition that has shot out of this colorful street is Second Sunday, a monthly street festival where the road is closed to car and bicycle traffic, and it becomes an outdoor celebration of music, dining, shopping and community gathering.  A feast for the eyes, patrons can dine on the street, enjoy a glass of wine or margarita, listen to local street musicians or find some of the best sales in the area.

One of the many things that brings unique color to King Street are the signs.  Each business represents itself with a look and feel they call their own and their signs are no different.  You will see, King Street is where historic and modern come together as one.

Come with us as we display and showcase some of the many wonderful signs of King Street.  You may recognize some, while others may be new.  Take notes, you may want to plan a visit soon to one of this shops or restaurants.
