Paige Meers kicked off her dream of owning a coffee shop business when she drove to Indiana to pick up her vintage camper.

"On my days off I used to go to local coffee shops and just drink coffee, and one night I was laying in bed (looking) on Pinterest, and I saw a cute little vintage camper. I thought it would be a great idea, so I just went for it," Meers said.

Morning Magnolia Coffee Bar, located at 2370 NE Dixie Hwy. in Jensen Beach, opened its window to coffee lovers a month ago.

"It's a 1964 Shasta [camper]," Meers said. "I really wanted something unique and vintage to get people's attention."

Owner Paige Meers says she hopes her vintage camper will capture the attention of her coffee customers.

Meers decided to take the leap and start her own business during the COVID-19 pandemic because she said she wanted to do something for herself.

"I worked for a vet's office for seven years. I love animals, but I also wanted to get out of the corporate world. When I had the idea of doing it at first, I was wary about it because of COVID. I did have struggles with getting loans, but with my family back up and friends support, I was able to proceed with my dream and just go for it," Meers said.
