Habersham welcomes Pearls Before Noon

1 min read

The Habersham Marketplace welcomes Ann Munger and Pearls Before Noon to its village of restaurants, retail shops and services. Pearls Before Noon is an antique store boasting one-of-a-kind finds, including vintage items gathered nationwide. A grand opening celebration, complete with a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce, was held Friday, October 7, at 5:30 p.m. during the Marketplace’s “First Fridays” event.
Munger travels from South Carolina to the Northern Midwest regularly and finds some of her most prized, unique or interesting items at estate sales, auctions and flea markets. She plans to launch an online version of the store in the near future.
“I have thought about opening an antique shop for years,” Munger said. “I’ve collected antiques my entire life and love the treasure hunt of finding unique items.”
The demand for vintage is on the rise. Sparked by the popularity of shows like “Mad Men,” Baby Boomers, like Munger, are rediscovering their childhood in vintage and mid-century modern items and collectibles.
Munger is a new resident of Habersham, first learning of the area through multiple visits to Fripp Island.
Pearls Before Noon is the fourth new business to open in The Habersham Marketplace in under six months.
The Habersham Marketplace is at 13 Market St. in the Habersham Community, located off of Joe Frazier Road in Beaufort. For more information visit www.habershammarketplace.com.
