A Bit of Carolina represents all this diversity and fun with apparel, accessories, home spa, home décor, Carolina pride and food products. Each product is specifically curated to ensure that everything in the store maintains a high level of crafts- manship and quality. Everything at Bit of Carolina is unique. Many of the products are made in small batches by artists and artisans, so supporting these creative locals supports the community. Instead of searching for months for the perfect Carolina-themed birthday or Christmas present, spend an afternoon perusing a menagerie of perfect options on a fun afternoon. Leave with something special for your own home, as well. Best Candy/Sweet Shop Rocket Fizz 1916 Skibo Rd.
