Antique shops

One of the many things I love about Fernandina is the abundance of fabulous antique stores all packed into such a small area.

There are some great antique stores in Tampa, but they’re all spread out. In Fernandina, I can visit four or five solid antique shops in an afternoon with very little driving. Shops with so many rooms that you get lost if you’re not careful.

Even when I’m not in the market for anything, I have to look. Just being in a place filled with so many old, beautiful things with unknown histories makes me happy. It stimulates the senses.


Sometimes I’m relieved to live in such a small apartment. If I had more places to put things, I’d be tempted to drive away with my car filled to the roof. Since our space is so limited, I have to be very picky, and I usually walk out empty-handed.

    They look like really amazing stores too. Right up my alley. How are your prices down there? Expensive? Ours can be resonable at a lot of places in NH. But when you head down towards Boston prices jump through the roof.
