Last week's Tour of the South stop in Charleston was a great way to confirm suspicions we've had almost since the beginnings of Batch last year. When looking for products to include in our May shipment, we noticed lots of great items being made by local purveyors. From sauces to rub, coasters to candles, cookies to coffee - Charleston certainly is a hotbed of handmade goods.
So, we decided to stay.
Our Tour of the South subscribers were the first to hear about our announcement last week. Come September, you can expect monthly shipments from Charleston to land on your doorstep.
Each month, we'll find at least four quality, locally-made items to send your way, all batched together around a common theme. You'll get the same great service and product selection from us, just like we currently offer in Nashville and Memphis.
We'll be hiring someone to oversee our operations in Charleston and begin looking for great things to batch up and send your way this summer.
And until the end of May (that's next week), you can be one of our early Charleston tastemakers. We're offering a great deal for those of you who want to reserve our first monthly Charleston shipments. For just $99, you can get four months' worth (September, October, November, December) of Charleston goodness sent to you (or a friend). Of course, if you'd rather pay month-to-month, you can do that, too.
Our first shipment in September will be Rise and Shine, followed up with Tailgate (October), and Gather 'Round the Table (November). And, as we've mentioned, if you order now, you'll get December's batch, too.
We can't wait to bring you all the great stuff we're finding in Charleston. It's a great time to experience this wonderful Southern city. Won't you come along with us?
