The Lowcountry Mermaid, 5015 N Highway 17 (Awendaw): May 2012   2 comments

Posted at 1:27 am in closing

I wondered at this little place when I drove by in early 2012. Apparently it was part of replacing three different former operations on the same property

The Kickin’ Horse stayed empty for a number of years. I always hoped that something fun would pop up there… and now it has. Where the Tackleshop was, there is now The Lowcountry Mermaid (which carries new and used furniture, home accessories, etc.). The small restaurant has been taken over by the Funky Little Kitchen (great burgers!) and I just recently heard that the stages out behind the place have been taken over by Awendaw Sound

The location, on US-17 between Georgetown & Charleston is rather rural, and I wasn't sure that anything as quirky as the shop looked to be could make it there. It appears, unfortunately, that I was right as according to their Facebook page, they closed down sometime soon after 25 April 2012.

  1. Along this stretch of US 17 in Awendaw there is a restaurant called Seewee that my brother liked when he lived in Mt. Pleasant and I've been several times with different folks and enjoyed it...Seewee is about a mile down the road as you come from Georgetown/Myrtle Beach and headed towards Mt. Pleasant...
