Our Story

In 1987, Ira and Marion Moore bought a little specialty shop on Sea Island, Georgia. Being located next to the Cloister, a world renowned five star resort, the shop was fittingly named the Cloister Collection. In May of 1994, a second Cloister Collection was opened in the Shops of Sea Island located on Saint Simons Island. This shop has become one of the twenty Lilly Pulitzer Premier Signature Shops in the country. The last thing you’d expect to find at a strip mall in a small coastal town, as stated in the March 2011 edition of Coastal Living Magazine.
