Life as we we know it has changed its course and we are all learning to adjust to this new norm. When I did this shoot at Freshfields Village the 1st week in March I didn’t realize how much we would be impacted from this pandemic. Making plans to go out to lunch with friends, hitting the beach with my boys, and getting away to Asheville for Spring Break would be put on pause for the time being. But we are a resilient city and we know how to be quick on our feet and pivot. I’m so proud to live in a city that has a strong support of local businesses, and when the going gets tough we all come together. This year, Freshfields Village and social distancing can go hand in hand.
Just because we are social distancing we can still continue to support small businesses. The shops and restaurants in the Freshfields Village are tailoring their services to support the community while practicing social distancing and safe operations. From curbside pick-up to virtual shopping appointments, you can stay up to date with all the latest offerings on their website and instagram. Visit their dedicated pages for retailer specials and restaurant services.
Tres Carmen Kiawah is one of the boutiques that are making accommodations so you can still shop conveniently. They are still posting new arrivals and outfit inspo daily on their instagram and are offering curbside pick up or will ship your goodies FREE of charge.
Sick of cooking at home and want to just sit back and relax on Easter Sunday? FortyEight – Wine Bar & Kitchen is offering a full, family-style Easter Brunch menu available for curbside pick-up on Sunday, April 12 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The menu features starters, entrees, sides and desserts for $29 per adult and $14 per child. Wine and beer is also available for purchase and curbside pick-up. Customers can view the full menu and place an order in advance by calling 843-768-2245.
The Easter Bunny is partnering up with Wonder Works as a resource to find all the goodies to spoil the kids and keep them entertained. They have a state of the art Virtual Tour of the store that features toys on their shelves and a video that pops up that shows the item in detail. Call them at 843-768-4383 to place an order and the team will package up your order for curbside pick-up or local delivery. The store is also offering $10 flat rate shipping and FREE shipping over $99 both online and over the phone. Plus, customers will receive a FREE Easter basket with $25 purchases of Easter goodies through Saturday, April 11.
This post was originally going to be about promoting the Freshfields Village Spring Concert on the Green, Spring Festival, Easter Service on the Green, Blues by the Sea and April Sip & Stroll, but all have been cancelled due to the virus, but you can still plan for your perfect day at Freshfields Village. They are running a giveaway on their Instagram right now and you can win a $100 gift card to one of their retailers.
This is the time to keep connected to one another as much as possible. Just because we are socially distancing doesn’t mean we have to emotionally distance ourselves. Family, friends, birthdays, and anniversaries aren’t cancelled so let’s continue to celebrate our gifts and moments together, virtually.
