If you are familiar with Charleston, you probably have seen the flower ladies that gather outside the Old Slave Market in downtown Charleston. Generations of ladies, descendants of slaves, have sold flowers there, and they are one of the treasures of the historic district. Along with Rainbow Row and Porgy and Bess, the flower ladies have been immortalized as a symbol of the South and its colorful history.
The pair will ship via FedEx Ground or Home Delivery for a fixed price of $40, insurance included.
