March Merchant of the Month Feature: Airlie Moon

Hello, Spring! As Lumina Station’s March Merchant of the Month, Airlie Moon welcomes you to feather your nest with amazing accessories, lovely linens, and so much more. Celebrating their 25th year in operation, Airlie Moon is inspired by our extraordinarily beautiful coastal environment and embraces the laid-back lifestyle of the beach. Their philosophy is, homes are to be lived in. From sofas with washable slipcovers to pet- and kid-friendly rugs, their selection is carefully curated for livability.

When asked how to describe her shop, co-owner Julie Robinson admits it defies categorization: not a gift shop; not a furniture store. Perhaps “lifestyle shop” is the most apt description of the carefully edited merchandise. “Basically, it is everything I love, and is constantly changing and evolving. I hope that every visit elicits a gasp.“ In addition to linens, furniture and accessories, Airlie Moon is filled with fragrant candles, lotions and potions, cover-ups and cashmere, hand-crafted jewelry, along with many other unexpected treasures. “I have always believed that visiting Airlie Moon should be a sensory experience: it smells beautiful, and good music is always being played. Luxurious linens invite touch, and books beg to be perused. Gifts are always beautifully wrapped in our signature style. Whether you are purchasing a $10 candle, or an $800 piece of original art, we hope it is something you treasure.”

Many artists, both local and from around the USA, are represented in Airlie Moon. “Relationships and serving the community are an integral part of who we are. Our Airlie Moon family includes our wonderful staff, the incredibly creative artists and vendors we exhibit, and especially our lovely customers. We celebrate milestones and heartbreaks and support important causes in our area.” In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, Airlie Moon worked hard to raise funds for those who needed it most. “Our call for help to our wholesale partners and artists was answered in a huge way. Likewise, our call to our customers to aid us in our efforts resulted in overwhelming results. As our twenty-fifth anniversary approaches, we look forward to many more opportunities to help out in our beloved community.”
