Lovely Fashionistas and Fashion Fans!
Follow Me to Charleston, SC! Follow or Join the Style Hop!
Disclosure: “Charleston Fashion with Bigelow Tea” was inspired by an all expense paid trip via a contest that I won from Bigelow Tea for writing “Around Grandma’s Table“. I was uncompensated by Bigelow for this post but some of the content does come from that trip. Also, this Verizon Voices Fashionista Style Hop is presented in conjunction with my participation in the Verizon Voices Boomer program and I have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. Stop by every Tuesday for all the fashion fun!

Bigelow Tea hosted a welcome reception at the historic Edmonton-Alston house and we met David and Eunice Bigelow, Co-Chairmans and Co-CEOs. Of Charleston’s many fine house museums, only the Edmondston-Alston House (constructed in 1825 and enhanced in 1838) commands a magnificent view of Charleston Harbor, which you can see in the background of many of these pictures.

The highlight of my evening was meeting David and Eunice Bigelow, 2nd generation, Bigelow Tea! The photo was taken with Samsung Galaxy Camera , 16MP, Optical 21x. 23MM Zoom Lens! Since I started using this smart camera, which can post to all social media including twitter and Instagram, I have basically stopped carrying and using my Ipad. The Samsung Galaxy Camera fits in my purse, does everything a Samsung Galaxy III phone does (except take phone calls) but it takes incredible pictures.

The Chief Blonde was thrilled to receive the biography of Ruth Bigelow, Founder of Bigelow Tea, penned by her son, David Bigelow, “My Mother Loved TEA”. This was one of the most precious gifts I have ever received as a blogger!
Be sure to follow along with details on the whole trip, the Bigelow’s, and my newest fascination with tea on our new Tea Series!
