About Charleston Collections Gifts

First of all, we give thanks to God who has blessed and provided a way to operate Charleston Collections Gifts for the past 30 years.

We are Terry and Bobbie Smoak, both natives of Charleston, South Carolina celebrating our forty-fourth year of marriage and owners of Charleston Collections since 1982.

In 1980, my wife, Bobbie began collecting sea shells and filling glass lamps. After receiving many orders, her hobby grew into a small gift business in our home and blossomed into opening our first store, Charleston Collections, at a little spot in Bohicket Marina Village at Seabrook Island, South Carolina in February of 1982. After two years, we opened a children’s store across the breezeway and named it after our daughter, Ashley Nicole. After a year or so, we branched out to downtown Charleston with our second Charleston Collections location on East Bay Street, then to the Isle of Palms, Kiawah Island, Wild Dunes and finally the West Ashley area, just west of Charleston. After many years we decided to downsize to just one store and chose the West Ashley location due in part to the proximity of our home. At this location we have operated as Charleston Collections for over 19 years.

Through the years, we’ve met so many wonderful locals and tourists alike who are loyal customers and we sincerely want to thank all of you for helping make our business successful for almost two decades.

With our website we hope to continue serving all of you with quality gifts, low pricesand a professional staff, as friendly and courteous as you’ll find anywhere.

We are located near Citadel Mall at 625 Skylark Drive, facing Piggly Wiggly. Convenient parking is available and we invite you to stop by and browse when you’re in the area. While perusing our website, if there is an item that is not offered, we welcome your call at (843) 556-8911. Our friendly staff will be excited to help you.
