Welcome back to “Where To Shop.” This next post is from a fellow blogger out in the sunshine state. She contacted me about contributing to this little series, and I know quite a few people in Florida, so hopefully this will help you figure out where to shop for your next Christmas present or home decor item!
Hi everyone, I’m Vanessa from What We’re Up To! and I am here to share where I like to shop in my home city of Jacksonville! I love to support local shops in our community, so I tend to check out the smaller locally owned stores for my home decor. My style usually consists of antique finds along with some modern pieces to keep it fresh.
First up I have to start with Driftwood, this shop is basically the bees knees in my book. I can’t get enough of their amazing antique pieces. Seriously, if they would let me sleep in their shop I just might! They have the perfect mix of vintage furniture and local art. The owners live local and are super sweet. If you’re in the Jacksonville Beach area be sure to stop in to see them, but be sure to set aside some extra time they have lots to look at! You won’t be disappointed. Check out more photos here.
T. Gregory is also located in Jacksonville Beach. They have very unique furniture that you will not find anywhere else. Their furniture is hand picked by the owner overseas and brought back to Jacksonville Beach just for us! Wahoo right? They also have a variety of accent pieces that I fall in love with every time I stop in. Their inventory is always changing, so it is fun to stop in often! They also have a location in St. Augustine if you’re closer to that area!
Now if you are a lover of antiques like me this place will make you weak in the knees. From the outside it looks like a quaint little shop, but once you get inside the building goes on and on. It is one huge antique shop where local thrifters sell their amazing finds. The inside is divided up into small booth like areas where each vendor sets up there goods. These are true antiques, booth after booth of them. If you live in the south you know it is not as easy to find antiques down here as it is up north, so this shop is a gold mine to me. Not to mention that they also have a consignment barn right next door that is also filled with more vintage home decor.
This is another locally owned shop here in Jacksonville Beach. Much like The Antique Market, they have many vendors/artists selling their own items. They have great vintage finds, lots that have been tweaked to make them even more unique. They also have great clothing and jewelry which is a bonus. Plus, their prices are really reasonable.
