We say goodbye to one of our beloved shops, The Seahorse Gift & Florist, as Mrs. Ouida Sack, the owner and operator has retired after a long and successful tenure. At age 82, Ouida has retired after serving this community for a total of two decades. Her upscale retail store was always a pleasant place to shop. Ouida was a valued supporter of our Independence Eve Celebration, and for the past few years created gorgeous fresh flower centerpieces for the sponsor tables. Ouida’s commitment to this community will be missed.
The space, however was not empty long as La Robe Boutique has relocated to 87 Market Street. With this move we can look forward to seeing a new tenant in their former location, the historic Sponge Exchange building on Ave E, in the near future.
For your full florist needs, please visit Blinging Up Daisies Florist located at 51 Market Street where you can order fresh arrangements, browse a unique mix of gifts and specialty items, and perhaps find some hidden treasures.
After 20 years in the same spot, The Tin Shed relocated to 45 Avenue D in late May and hasn’t missed a beat. Still offering a great maritime collection with nautical antiques, collectibles, and gifts. If you’re wondering what happened to the iconic buoy from their former Water Street location, you can find it at Half Shell Dockside and Scipio Creek Marina. Don’t forget to bring your camera – it’s a perfect backdrop for making photo memories.
Art of Glass Gallery has moved from their Apalachicola location, but not very far, as you can visit this unique glass gallery/studio on St. George Island at 128 Pine Street. Bits & Pieces art classes are currently available where you can join in and create your own masterpiece.
While in the same plaza on St George Island, stop by and shop the fun summer styles at Deep Southern Boutique. In addition to their Apalachicola location, they have expanded by opening a second store to serve the island community. If you’re not currently in the area and can’t shop local, you can always check out their on-line shop, where free shipping is always available.
