King Street is Charleston's main shopping thoroughfare. Starting at the southern tip of Charleston and running north, you have 16 blocks of shops to explore as you admire the beautifully preserved colonial architecture. You can find everything from Gap to Gucci, but the many independent stores are what make King Street unique. The area is especially heavy with antique stores. For rare and pricey home furnishings, try hunting in A. Fairfax Antiques . For all things 17th-18th century English and European, English Patina, Inc. will meet your needs. For bookworms, browsing Boomer's Books and Collectibles , the largest used bookstore in Charleston, is a must. And for the shoe lovers, Bob Ellis Shoes stocks high-end designers like Manolo Blahnik and Prada, but you may want to opt for comfortable walking shoes if you're attempting to shop the whole length of King Street!
