How did your business begin?
In 1978, soon after my mom, Jean Bruton, graduated from USC, her mother, Margaret Davis, approached her with the idea of opening an antique and gift shop. They both thought it would be fun, and their philosophy was to buy what they love. Inspired by their travels, love of English antiques, and their talent for finding beautiful pieces, non(e)such was created.
What is the mission of your business?
non(e)such defined is “a person or thing that has no equal; an extraordinary person or thing; a paragon.” We try to live up to our name by creating a gracious atmosphere in the shop, curating collections that will one day become family heirlooms, and having unique gifts in every price point.
How did you get involved with this business?
The fall after graduating from Wofford College, I made the last minute decision to join my mom and grandmother at non(e)such. I am fortunate to have worked with my grandmother and to continue to work for my mom. Every day at the shop is different and fun!
What do you like best about your line of work?
Friends who become customers and customers who become friends, the wonderful reps and artisans we work with, and our coworkers who are like family are what we like best about our line of work.
