Hey,

 

Have you already purchased the peach butter and key lime cookies? Only reason I am asking, neither of those items are very "Charleston." (Don't hate the messenger! lol)

 

But...if you have - no worries. They are very southern at least.

 

I would suggest...

 

1) Pralines from River Street Streets. Southern Gourmet Online Candy Store | River Street Sweets

2) Cookies from Charleston Cookie Company » Welcome!. Their marble fudge cookies are soooo good.

3) A bag of rice or grits. Sounds silly, but it's very Charleston. Charleston Samplers Grains, Rice and Mixes

4) Anything from Gullah Gourmet. Welcome to Gullah Gourmet

no help on the Charleston-specific goodies, but Jills post made me really hungry for a treat.

i do love pecan pralines but i have a few family members who are allergic to nuts so that's out but the fudge might be a good idea...thanks for the advice though!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
