The shops are clean, well lit, display merchandise nicely. However, I found prices here to be very high on most things. Although I wouldn't hesitate to counter-offer, when a price starts very high, you know they won't come down too far. It's too bad since they have some very nice pieces. Other areas like Lambertville, NJ, realize the economy isn't... More

Ok for browsing around, looking, but for us not worth the prices being asked. Maybe you can negotiate the price but didn't find anything we were looking for or interested in. Have been in many more better antique areas/stores in other towns. Such as New Orleans or Round Top TX.

My wife and I (both residents of Mount Pleasant, SC) were recently perusing the many antique stores and art galleries in Charleston and found ourselves outside Alkyon Arts & Antiques. At a first glance through the windows, we saw a wide variety of pieces and decided to pop in for a closer look. However, on closer inspection it seemed that... More

It is fun to browse through the numerous shops. Most are high quality and expensive but there is always the chance of finding a bargain.

Be hesitant when shopping for antiques when in the city of Charleston. The local shop keepers are prying on the tourists with charging outrageous prices on pieces that are worthless. I was fortunate enough that my partner is a high-end interior designer and knows his stuff!

During our recent trip to Charleston, our small group of ladies browsed or attempted to browse in some of Charleston's antiques shops. One of our group has been an antiques dealer in the past and knows her antiques. She noticed some things which were reproductions and by the price, apparently trying to be passed off as antique. Even if antique,... More

Few noteworthy shops. Not much variety available in any of the shops. Given the history of this Deep South area you would expect more choices. Expensive offerings!

wandered around the antiques district and only found a hand full of crowded, high end antique stores. was expecting more variability in selection and price. if you have transportation- drive over to mount pleasant to 'antiques market' on coleman blvd, 'six mile antique mall' also on coleman blvd, and 'mount pleasant mall' on johnnie dodds blvd.
