More Touring and Shopping in the Low Country - Bluffton, SC

This is the second posting in a series about shopping and touring in the "Low Country" - that area of the Southeastern United States along the Atlantic Ocean coast.  It is distinguished by flat areas of sandy soil, barrier islands, and distinctive southern charm.  My husband and I just returned from a week-long visit to Hilton Head Island and spent time exploring areas off island as well as on.

We stopped by the town of Bluffton, South Carolina, on two occasions.  On our first visit, we visited an historic house and participated in a walking tour of the historic district.  On the second visit, we returned for the weekly farmer's market and spent time visiting the shops and art galleries.  Bluffton is a wonderful town in a great setting!

The Town of Bluffton is located in Beaufort County, the southernmost coastal county in South Carolina.  It is situated on a high bluff overlooking the May River, a pristine waterway that has strongly contributed to the Town's history and continued success.  Bluffton is located just 12 miles west of Hilton Head Island, SC and approximately 20 miles northeast of Savannah, GA. 
Great old church on the bluffs overlooking the channel and harbor.
Our walking tour started at the Heyward House - link to website.
The walking tour was charming and our guide was very informed about the official and "unofficial" stories about the history of Bluffton.
Returned for the Thursday Farmer's Market.

I had a long conversation with the ladies at this shop.  We discussed various finishing techniques and I described my experiences with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - something they had not tried.  Their work was beautiful!

We will be back!
