The Scout That Started It All
We get our name - and our character - from Scout Finch, the feisty, intelligent, and thoughtful narrator of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. Strong-willed and confident, Scout takes no bull from anyone; She is true to herself and everyone around her, just like us.
Our Favorite "Scout" Quote: "Naw, Jem, I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks."
Meet Ann - Market Owner
Ann and her family moved to Beaufort, South Carolina from the San Francisco Bay area. Local writer, Lanier Laney dubbed Ann "A Southern Enthusiast!" as she has a deep passion for the people and products that originally inspired her love of the South. After years of traveling the great southern states, she was struck by the absence of a retail experience that celebrates the South’s vibrant culture and unique traditions. As a result, we’re open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
Favorite Southern Quote: "She's a hot mess."
