New boutique provides gift ideas for all occasions, celebrates southern-inspired lifestyle

Only Southern Made, a retail shop featuring unique gift ideas and home accessories that celebrate the southern lifestyle, has opened its storefront in downtown Greer. The new shop is located at 102 Trade Street and is run by partners, friends and moms, Kim Banks, Lindsay Chastain and Liza Jones.

From candles to tea towels and jewelry to home décor, many of the store’s offerings include local and handmade items by independent artisans based across the Southeast.

“Here, we know being southern isn’t about perfection with pearls and bowties, it’s about keeping it real, and about laughing with family and friends. It’s about making the effort, whether hosting a fabulous party, rocking a great outfit, bringing the perfect hostess gift, or mailing a handwritten note to a friend who needs a smile,” said Lindsay Chastain, who serves as the store’s creative director and head buyer. “We’re proud to call the South our home, and we wanted to share with the world some of the amazing pieces Southern makers are creating.”

“We’re so glad Only Southern Made chose downtown Greer as their new home. Their passion and energy fit right in here in Greer, and their product line is a great addition to community. In fact, their product line serves as a reflection of Greer; a mix of historic Southern charm and bold new ideas,” said Kyle Mensing, commercial development director for the Greer Development Corporation.”

Items and inventory will change throughout the season, but individuals can view a sampling of the store’s product line at www.onlysouthernmade.com. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Tuesday through Friday and on Saturday from noon to 5:30 p.m.

ABOUT ONLY SOUTHERN MADE

Being southern means more than just living below the Mason-Dixon line, it’s a pride in our history and heritage.

Being southern means we take pride in our appearance, our cooking and our way of life. We can enjoy the finer things, but also know there is nothing better than a cold beer on Game Day. We enjoy hosting as much as we enjoy sweet tea, and know that a casserole can solve most of life’s problems. We share, we laugh, we hold open doors, we respect our elders, and we honor traditions.

Being from the south is a privilege, and here at Only Southern Made, we think it should be celebrated and shared. Our collection of uniquely southern home and fashion items are the ideal combination of style and sass. Shop for yourself, or for the perfect gift.
