Shopping in a small town like Easley is an intimate experience, offering you the opportunity to connect with local residents and take home a warm memory of your vacation.

Spend the day perusing the shops of Easley’s historic downtown for distinctive apparel, unique gifts or a handcrafted accent for your home. Or pop into one of the local antique stores and add to your collection of teacups, vinyl records or vintage toys.

Main Street features several fun shops, among them That’s Karma. What started out as a small clothing consignment store has grown over the years to include accessories, new clothing and local artists’ wares, from natural soaps to soy candles. Most recently, an ice cream shop and micro-cafe were added to the back of the store.

Laughton & Co. offers stylish clothing and timeless home accessories. You’ll also want to check out Plum Home Décor and Gift Boutique, featuring wallpaper, lamps and other decorator items designed to give your home a chic atmosphere. A new addition to the Main Street scene, it also sells cool gifts like ceramic succulents, fish-shaped corkscrews and inflatable pool floats that look like giant orange slices.

Mixed in with the new retail offerings are several longtime favorites, including Robinson’s, a full-service men’s and ladies’ apparel shop established in 1884. It features clothing of distinction typically not found in department stores, along with formal wear, prom dresses, shoes and accessories.

Poor Richard’s Booksellers is another Main Street staple you won’t want to miss. The locally owned book store is a tonic to today’s digital text. Bibliophiles will enjoy poring over the impressive collection of titles packed into the shelves of this small book shop.

Something Special, a home and fashion boutique, has been around for more than two decades. Each season brings new women’s apparel and accessories, along with decorator items like artificial flower arrangements and artwork.

The downtown district also includes In the Carolina Breeze, specializing in decorative garden and house flags, Midtown Music, selling instruments, method books and accessories, and Upstate Hemp, a retail outlet for hemp products, including lip balms, candles and clothing.

If you enjoy shopping for antiques, you’ll find several great options, including Uncle Sam’s Antiques and Collectibles and Garland & George.

Easley also has several shopping centers with well-known retailers like Belk, Academy Sports, PetSmart, Tuesday Morning and Hobby Lobby. Try Town & Country Shopping Center,
Rockville Center or Centerpoint for any basic needs.
