It appears to me that The Needler may have occupied two buildings with a common wall, both the corner building with the historic plaque, and the brick building abuting it. While my grandmother tried to teach me how to knit once, I know very little about needlepoint, & cross stitch and the like. This SCETV story (with oddly somber music) gives a little background on the store and the needle arts.

UPDATE 1 July 2019 -- Commenter Todd Miller points out that this was most likely originally a Pure gas station. Looking at some old photos on the web, I think he's right, so I'm adding that the post title. Also, this place is now a restaurant called Nicky's Pizzeria:

  1. Glad to see a pizza joint interested in moving into this space. I've always loved old gas station buildings. I hope they strip the paint down to the original brick. It's a shame the look of these old buildings aren't protected like they are in Charleston.

  2. Based on the building design, I think it was originally a Pure gas station.
