This past weekend I attended the first ever Garden & Gun Jubilee in Charleston, SC.
G&G’s inaugural celebration of Southern tastemakers was a huge success. It was held in Charles Towne Landing, a 663-acre state park which preserves the site of the first English settlement in South Carolina. The natural setting was the perfect backdrop for bringing the pages of the magazine to life with experiences such as fly-fish instruction, a litter of adorable Boykin Spaniel puppies and insanely good Rodney Scott BBQ.
For four years, the magazine has hosted a Made In The South competition, allowing many of the region’s most talented artisans to showcase their crafts. This year, G&G brought the winners together to form a marketplace just in time for the holidays. From trunk shows featuring creative leather goods and one-of-a-kind sporting gear to tents filled with fascinating antiques and mouthwatering Southern-made foods, the folks at G&G set the bar high for next year.
