THOMAS ISLAND RESIDENT OPENS ‘THE STATION’ IN PARK CIRCLE
Interior stylist Sharon Payer recently celebrated the grand opening of her new store, The Station Park Circle, located at 4610 Spruill Avenue in North Charleston. Payer, a Thomas Island resident, used her 10 years of experience designing interiors for her clients “to curate a fun and interesting marketplace for the home,” stated a press release. While visiting the location, customers will find 28 different vendors and local artists offering reclaimed and vintage furnishings, accents, art, lighting, textiles, music, gifts, and much more.
“Using reclaimed pieces to help someone create a space that reflects their personality is my passion,” said Payer. “And I love this area! The energy and support we receive from the Park Circle community is amazing.”
Payer’s vision was to find an eclectic group of individuals with the same passion and to provide them a retail outlet and great exposure in a thriving market.
“I’ve been selling at outdoor events and festivals over the last few years, and now I can continue to grow my business from brick and mortar,” added Park Circle resident and Black Octopus Mercantile owner, Missy Johnson, one of the vendors in Payer’s new space. “We are making history and bringing retail back to Spruill Avenue!”
Vendor styles at The Station range from mid-century, boho, and industrial to farmhouse, traditional, and antique. Other vendors include Charleston Candle Co., GrayCat Music and two art galleries housing eight local artists.
The Station extends the marketplace outside once a month and invites other vendors to set up pop-up shops selling their craft. These family-friendly events allow local artisans to showcase their work and gain exposure within the Charleston community. They also host after-hour “sip and shops” on Thursdays every 4-6 weeks (the next one is slated for July 19). Follow @TheStationParkCircle for more information or call (843) 225-1130.
