Vintage and Resale Shopping in Destin, FL

The wonderful beach in Destin, Florida - white and sparkling - the BEST beach in the world!
We just returned from a short trip to Destin, Florida, and spent quite a bit of time shopping its many resale, thrift, antique and consignment shops. Most are arrayed along the main east-west "drag" - Highway 98. We enjoyed the shops and I ended up buying three great chairs to refurbish and restore to better than their former glory.

A word about Destin and this whole area of Florida. It is located along the "panhandle" part of the state and has world-renowned white sand beaches as far as the eye can see. We have seen the beaches of Hawaii, Mexico, Cancun, Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, Greece, Southern California, Oregon, etc. etc. etc. - and have NEVER seen nicer beaches than those in this area. When we first arrived in the area for a visit about 25 years ago, our first impression was that of snow - they are that blindingly white and clean.

In tackling our shopping venture, we stopped by several shops along highway 98 and asked for other recommendations. Over the next two days, we stopped at least a dozen. Here are some of the highlights.

Last day in Destin - such a wonderful location!
