Flashes Fireworks

I know what you’re thinking, but stay with me here.

Flashes are the well-known stop just off 77 that has billboards claiming to be the last fireworks stop in SC. The thing that people, even residents don’t know, is that Flashes is locally owned by Gordon and Jean who have been in the fireworks business for over 20 years, and they have a huge selection of t-shirts, decals, license plates, koozies, lanyards, shot glasses, mugs, key chains, magnets, post cards, and so much more. Can you say SC pride??
