Big changes are happening for the north Phoenix resaler, Pearly Mae's. In addition to the spring launch of its own repurposed menswear fashion line, Dad's Rags, the vintage boutique is packing its bags and moving to a new location.
Pearly Mae's will be relocating to the former space of Go-Kat-Go at the Melrose Center, 4314 North Seventh Avenue, where it will sell its usual array of costume jewelry, vintage apparel, and consignment goods and furniture.
"I wanted more space. and wanted to be down in the heart of it, " says Pearly Mae's co-owner Jeanne Wiesley. "I mean if you're going to do vintage and retro -- I'm launching a line of repurposed clothes in April -- I want to be downtown."
The soft opening of the newly located Pearly Mae's is set for Thursday, April 17. For those looking to snag a good deal at its current location, Pearly Mae's will remain open at 11649 North Cave Creek Road until Sunday, March 23.
