With the growing popularity of Phickles in the low country, we’ve been headed back and forth from Athens to the marsh a lot lately. For our kids, these trips always start out with lots of “are we there yets?” Between filling station pit stops for gas and jerky and sweet treats ….when they’re not entertained by electronic devices, they sleep.
The Phickles kids were happy to wake up at Mainline Market in St. Helena, South Carolina! Mainline Market has everything from fresh produce, wine and beer ….to local art, fishing tackle and crab traps. The kids were happy to find beef sticks and skittles and sugary beverages and we were happy to find fresh fish and crab claws!
If you’re headed to Fripp or Harbor Islands, ya gotta make a quick stop at Mainline Market for fresh, locally-caught fish and local veggies and anything else you forgot to pack. It’s a fun place to look around. They’re always getting in new things. We even got to meet the artist who makes the adirondack chairs they sell. We’re proud to know Phickles are there on the shelves above the produce and also near their bloody mary mixers. Yes, they have EVERYTHING!
A quick delivery, a few pictures, some jerky and boiled peanuts ….and we were on our way for a little relaxation and playtime at the Westin on Hilton Head Island. We got to the island just in time to hit the beach for sunset.
I love sharing our story with our PHriends. We face struggles every day …but all in all, we have a good, fun life ….and for that we are grateful. I hope our story of selling only to locally-owned stores and restaurants inspires all in our path to support other mom ‘n pops like us.
