About re•fresh

"Southern Art" by southern artists or southern scenes
-- re•fresh has them both!

re•fresh opened in March 2010 by Toni and Michael Jerome who came out of retirement to rejoin the historic downtown Aiken retail "scene". A chance encounter inspired them to open an art-based collection. re•fresh specializes in contemporary jewelry, southern art and a jumble of artful gifts. We sell accessories that will add a touch of class and elegance to any ensemble or home. So whether you are out shopping or on a stroll, be sure to stop by our shop and see what we have to offer.

Come to re•fresh to hear the stories behind the artists, be connected to supporting our own talented artists and small companies.

Feel free to take photographs, ask questions, take a piece home to try --
it's all part of our conversation.

Marek and mavia

Refresh Interior

Carved, joined, and painted wood creatures by Marek and Mavia are the absolute stars of re•fresh. We drive almost 1700 miles round-trip to bring these amazing folk carvings to Aiken. A small farmer's market and re•fresh are the only places in the world to find these treasures! Over 300 pieces have passed through our hands and never the same design. We are so fortunate to show these amazing original works.
