There are many reasons Charleston is consistently named one of the best cities in the world to visit and to shop. Here are five:

The Hidden Countship
Downtown on Burns Lane, The Hidden Countship is a treasure worth finding. At the heart of the museum-like store is the desire to celebrate and promote Italian arts, artists and history. “Italian goods are unmistakable. There is an immediate recognition about them,” says Donatella Cappelletti, who, along with her husband, Giulio Della Porta, owns the shop. “We wanted to bring things that are unmistakably Italian… This space, where art and artisanship meet, is a beautiful place to navigate,” says Cappelletti. 21 Burns Ln.; thehiddencountship.com
