The organic wine shop operates out of an attached building where they curate many wines and craft beers.
Generally open on Saturdays, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.
Daufuskie Blues is an indigo and natural dye studio which is generally open Monday – Saturday afternoons and is located at the historic Mary Fields School on School road. Come see how Leanne and Rhonda make beautiful scarves and other items.

The Silver Dew Pottery opens for the season on Tuesday, April 30th and remains open through October. This studio is run by Lancy and Emily Burn, longtime Daufuskie residents. You can hear some fascinating stories about the island’s history from the Burns during your visit to this shop.
The hours for the Silver Dew Pottery are 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, Tuesday through Friday from May – October. It is located at 111 Benjie’s Point Road.
The Freeport General Store is located at the Freeport Marina (which includes the Old Daufuskie Crab Company) and carries snacks, soda, bottled water, and tourist gifts. The store also has an ATM (the only one on the island, and the service fee is very high) and an ice machine. You can usually find some basic food items here, but we don’t recommend you count on the store for any groceries that you really need/want at your vacation home.
