Shopping in Charleston


Heirloom Book Company — After owner Brad Norton had collected some 4,000 cookbooks, he opened this light-filled store to deal with the overflow. I could have browsed the new and rare vintage cookbooks for hours. Tempting titles included “Cooking with Italian Grandmothers” and an 1871 edition of “Mrs. Porter’s New Southern Cookery Book.”

Owner Jacques Lemoine regularly returns to France to replenish the stock. In his absence, ask for the knowledgeable and charming Françoise.
