Along the storied blocks of Calhoun Street, you’ll find the soul of a small town that has stood for generations. Among its lavish storefronts you’ll find a paradise of shopping, dining and relaxation. In short, it was the perfect place to take the Blender Bombs girls for an enchanting day trip.

Once defined as a secluded enclave for quirky artists and oystermen, Bluffton’s evolution over the last few years has transformed it into an iconic getaway blending old-school Southern charm and new-school sophistication. You’ll find tradition here, and stories that go back generations. But you’ll also find boutique stores boasting the latest in refined Southern fashion, restaurants on the vanguard of the South’s culinary renaissance and a renowned sense of hospitality that has made this sleepy town a world-renowned destination.

So when South magazine decided to entertain the girls from Blender Bombs, we couldn’t think of a better spot. With the loan of a decked-out street-legal Moke (hot pink, of course) and a room at the Old Town Bluffton Inn to rest their heads, we set them loose on B-Town with a quest to find the best places to shop, dine and explore. What they found has us ready to plan our own girls’ weekend in Old Town Bluffton.

Signore Coastal Art

Carrying on Bluffton’s tradition as a hotspot for unique artwork, Signore Coastal Art sees reclaimed wood transformed into a vibrant rainbow of hand-carved sea life sculptures and adorable pieces of statement furniture. Our stylist loves the solid-color handmade fish pieces, noting, “You can write a small note on the back or have everyone sign it as a commemorative piece. They make sweet hostess gifts or can mark a special occasion. They’re also a great alternative to flowers or wine and are a more personal gift at the same price point.” Browse the gallery or commission a custom piece for an endless reminder of your trip to paradise.
