Polish Pottery Gallery in Charleston

In anticipation of the fifth book of A Low Country Dog Walker Mystery series, I plan to share some fun things about Charleston, South Carolina.

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Polish Pottery Gallery. From the moment I walked inside, the beauty took my breath away. There were so many appealing patterns, but there were also unique pieces too.

For instance, Polish pottery soup bowls. These bowls were first made in World War II at a pottery factory in Boleslawiec. Back then there was little food available. Men and women tied these soup bowls to their clothes, and if soup became available they could scoop it up in their soup bowl then drink right out of the bowl. Today the bowls are pretty and functional.

There was also an odd shaped cup with two holes in the bottom. I asked the lady working about it. You place the cup over a small bowl or large mug. Line the top cup with a filter and add coffee and pour hot water over it.

There were plates, bowls, mugs, and serving dishes. It was such a unique find on King Street. If you can’t make it to Charleston, but you’re interested in seeing more, they have a website. https://www.polishpotterygalleryofcharleston.com/

I hope you enjoyed stepping into one of many amazing shops you’ll find if you visit the Low Country!

Taking a Walk in Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston was founded in 1670, and I’ve always been intrigued by the antebellum houses in the Battery districts. It’s not just the houses but the flowers and fencing around the houses. And there are so many hidden gardens. If you’re lucky you may find an open gate where you can take a peek into how the people of downtown Charleston live.

The Ravenel Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge leading into Charleston.
These elegant stairs are more than functional. Can you imagine walking up and down them every day?

I’m not a South Carolina native, and I’ve never lived in Charleston, so I’m no expert, but I’m going to start sharing more about the Low Country on my blog.

I love living in the Low Country, and it’s one of the reasons I set my cozy mystery series in the fictional town of Heyward Beach in this area. Thanks for allowing me to share a little about my walk in Charleston.

Secrets Can Be Deadly

I’ve been writing for quite a few years with many of the ups and downs authors experience on the road to publication.

Bite the Dust is the first book in A Low Country Dog Walker Mystery series. Andi Grace Scott is the local dog walker and friend to all. She has a caretaker personality which is part of her charm in caring for dogs.

The series takes place in the fictional town Heyward Beach, South Carolina. The town consists of an island and extends to the mainland. I hope you read this series and come to care for the characters as much as I do. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/161194984X/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

Secrets can be deadly.

One steamy South Carolina morning, Low Country dog walker Andi Grace Scott discovers a client’s dead body. Police quickly decide she’s the prime suspect. Horrified, she knows she’ll have to turn detective if she’s going to convince them they’re barking up the wrong tree.

Proving her innocence could be a tall order. The local police never solved the hit-and-run that killed her parents; Andi Grace isn’t sure they’ll solve this crime either…not when they have a convenient suspect—one caught with the possible murder weapon in her hand. She’ll have to follow every clue and call in every favor, even if that puts her in danger.

If you love strong heroines, coastal small-town life, and dogs, you’ll love Bite the Dust.
