Join Us For Buy Local Month!


We’re partnering once again with Lowcountry Local First for their annual Buy Local Month celebration. Held November 15 to December 15, Buy Local Month encourages Charleston shoppers to help support our local community by spending their dollars at local businesses. Stop by the corner of King and Society to do some holiday shopping, and while you’re here pick up a Sweeteeth “Sea is for Caramel” chocolate bar for the chance to win a Golden Ticket! One lucky winner will receive a prize pack including a $250 gift card to M. Dumas & Sons.

We’ll also be participating in the Lowcountry Local First scavenger hunt, held during Second Sunday on December 11 from 1 to 5 p.m. One of the golden tickets will be hidden at a local retailer on King Street! M. Dumas has been a part of the Charleston community for nearly 100 years, and we are honored to continue our partnership with Lowcountry Local First in support of our city!

Behind the Scenes: Charleston Magazine Photo Shoot

Last month, we did a photo shoot with Charleston Magazine showcasing some of our favorite new product. With the help of photographer Kate Benson and stylist Alexander Munzel, the models pulled off the effortless, tailored style of M. Dumas & Sons flawlessly! Take a sneak peek behind the scenes at the shoot, which took place in beautiful Hutson Alley and at a private home here in Charleston. Look for the final images in the December issue.
