  GIFT SHOP OF BERKELEY PLANTATION
by matcrazy1
 
 

This charming, pink building, on my picture, housed the ticket office and gift shop of the Berkeley Plantation. The costumed lady welcomed us to visit the plantation, sold us tickets which costed $10.50 (Oct. 2004) and informed us about guided tour around the mansion.

The store sells postcards, various "old" pictures and photographs, historical books on early colonial times, the plantation and its owners, CDs surely with the Army bugle call "Taps" which was for the first time played just at this plantation in 1862 and other Berkeley Plantation Memorabilia as well.

What to buy: My recommendation, well, for history fans exclusively, is a great book about Berkeley: The Grand Plantation by Clifford Dowdey. Well, being at the beginning of quite expensive trip I didn't buy anything.

What to pay: The prices are either average (postcards) or... higher (books, CDs).
