“Starting this company has been good for me. It has given me the energy to work hard and it has taught me how to work smart. I may not get the instant gratification of 20,000 people applauding when I’m on stage, but I have long term gratification: every day several thousand people buy my candy. That’s the kind of applause I really love!” says shop owner, Mackenzie Colt.

A Taigan is a sighthound noted for its hunting skills and ability to deliver the best to its master. At Taigan, we are always “on the hunt” seeking to find well crafted & presented products for our marketplace. Each of our shops is unique in their own way. They all have a background story like no other which is why they were meticulously chosen for Taigan.

Founder Pam Schaecher launched Amaya after 35 years of living, working, traveling and raising a family abroad. Inspired by the vibrant and intricate designs of saris and shawls she experienced while attending traditional Indian weddings, Pam created Amaya to present this extraordinary artistry in fashion to North America and Europe. A person who purchases an Amaya product is not only selecting a hand embroidered piece, but also buying a work of art that can only be made in select villages in India.

The Goldbug Collection

Palmetto Bug Inspired Jewelry by MINI

nepgo

The Goldbug Collection was created by “Mini” Mariana Hay, one of the 4th generation daughters at Croghan’s Jewel Box in Charleston, SC. Mariana’s mother challenged her to design a line of jewelry that would be something unique to Charleston, but something that people all over would enjoy.

After some thinking, and living in an old house in Charleston, the idea struck Mini, “Cockroaches!” or as they are more politely called “Palmetto Bugs”. She gilded her first bug and made a necklace with pearls to test the waters. The necklace sold that day and she has been expanding The Goldbug Collection ever since.

Grey Ghost Bakery

Artisanal Cookies from Legendary Family Recipes

screen-shot-2016-09-29-at-9-56-51-am

South Carolina legend has it that the “Grey Ghost”, a friendly spirit, appears to alert residents of impending storms and protects those who heed his warning. Inspired by her summer days spent baking and sharing Lowcountry lore with friends and family on the porch of her Pawleys Island beach house, owner Katherine Frankstone named the company for the beloved legend.

Like the ghost tales of the Carolina Lowcountry, Grey Ghost Bakery’s legendary recipes have been passed through their family for generations. Grey Ghost is a small family-owned baking company that uses the highest quality all natural ingredients to create their made-from-scratch, hand-formed cookies in a range of truly addictive flavors.

Specifically, reclaimed Whiskey, Bourbon & Wine oak barrel wood known as “staves”. While the medium presents challenges, the naturally occurring patina, preserved reminisce of the barrel woods past life, offers a distinctly unique piece that will be enjoyed for generations.
