On December 5th, I’ll be loading up the car (Addison included), and heading five hours East. The destination: Charleston for Garden & Gun’s Second Annual Jubilee. Jubilee is a “Made in the South” weekend full of sporting, shopping, food, music, and art, as well as special dinners and live entertainment on the grounds of the historic state park Charles Towne Landing. Attracting from all over the country, the three-day festival is a continuation of Garden & Gun’s commitment to celebrating the best of Southern culture. It’s G&G’s largest signature event and I couldn’t be more excited to be attending for my very first time.
I’ll be starting my Jubilee experience Thursday night with the Oyster Roast and spending all day Friday and Saturday perusing the Jubilee marketplace, pantry, tents and grounds. While I’m looking forward to meeting and spending time with all of the talent I must say there’s a few specific people I’ll be making a beeline for….
-Mark Sage, co-owner of Bobo Intriguing Objects. Bobo is always a stop for me during Atlanta Market and quite a few pieces found in my Shop and home have come from Bobo. Mark is an interior design guru and will be bringing a vast array of his original antiques and curios for all to peruse. Sage will set the stage in a 4,000 square foot tent filled to the brim and styled to inspire. 4,000 square feet!? I might need to bring a U-Haul with me on this little adventure.
-Three Brothers Boards. 2013 Made in the South Award runners-up Three Brothers will introduce a limited edition Jubille paddleboard along with their other designs. I’ve been wanting to get a paddleboard for over a year now so this may be the weekend I make it happen! The brothers, R.J. and Justin Murray will also share their tools, sketches, and stories inspiring their throwback designs.
-Hobnob Entertaining and Leontine Linens. Hobnob is a one-stop shop curating all things entertaining while founder Jane Scott Hodges of Leontine Linens will be showcasing all of her to-die-for linens. of New Orleans offers a couture service and product based on the belief that one’s linens should be a reflection and extension of the person’s personal taste and lifestyle. Founder Jane Scott Hodges will be showcasing her fine linens at JUBILEE as part of the Meet the Makers Trunk Shows, giving consultations and taking custom order.
-The Commons. Longtime friends, Erin Connelly and Kerry Clark Speake work together to curate a collection of American made goods for the home. Selecting hand made goods that are beautifully designed and thoughtfully made, bringing a soulful approach to home decorating and will be showcasing their collection in the Jubilee Pantry.
Also did I mention this will be my first ever trip to Charleston?! I’m taking my friend-ographer Kathryn McCrary to document our entire crazy journey and we’ll be staying at The Belmond Charleston Place in the heart of historic Charleston. If you’ve got any must see, must do, must eat Charleston suggestions bring em’ on. And please let me know if you’re planning on attending Jubilee so we can meet up for a toast. TGIF Loves! Truly, MKR
