Some say that a "day date" isn't as significant or special as a traditional evening-time date. I say, the day date is absolutely underrated, especially if you're a parent. Take the day off of work, drop the little one off at school, and set off on a several hour adventure!
The annual Southeastern Wildlife Expo (SEWE) kicked off today and the weather in Charleston is unseasonably warm. Perfect day date scenario.
Many artists and craftspeople bring their work to SEWE to show and sell. So many interesting and beautiful things to look at and appreciate. Here were a few of my favorite -
These handsome belt buckles are by Red Fish Brand and were part of a display by Grady Ervin & Co. Also, how cool is the old tackle box they are displayed in?
I've been following Chic Verte on the social medias since SEWE last year. The oyster shell necklaces are so pretty up close. I may just have to go back and buy one tomorrow. The are so very lowcountry, especially in the winter months.
Landrum Tables has been a favorite of mine for a while, but this Fly Rod table is such a unique piece. My husband would love to have a setup like this one.
Aside from the art, jewelry and whatnot, SEWE also includes lectures, demos & shows. Today, we caught a fly fishing demo with John Irwin from Charleston Angler. Stay tuned for an upcoming posts with some of the tips that John shared.
Sunday update -
It just wouldn't be SEWE without catching a bit of the dock dogs competition. The summer-like day in February made it fun to get right up close.
