Worthwhile is an independent clothing shop in historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina. Robben opened the shop in 1993 on King Street. In 2022, the shop relocated to an early 19th century two-story building just off the beaten path.

Worthwhile supports small production, independent designers who have a common philosophy of quality and longevity. Our hope is that the pieces you find in our shop will be loved and lived in for many years. 
We have two stories of retail space with thoughtfully designed clothing, accessories, and objects from small ateliers as well as established brands. See a full list of our designers here.

If you can't visit in person just yet, meet the Worthwhile team here and see our favorite pieces in the shop!
