I also love to look in the stores while I'm at the beach. They have different items for sale there that I don't see at home.
So this past week, we got to go to the beach and I got to do some shopping. THE BEST PART???? My FAVORITE store had moved to a bigger location!
Here are some pictures I took inside THE ART OF SIMPLE in Seaside, Florida. They specialize in candles, soaps, perfumes and other items that everyone loves. BUT--they also have wonderful items that they use for their displays along with a lot of extra fun and original goodies to tempt your vintage soul--all for sale!
Old wooden tennis rackets look right
at home near the colorful soaps and picture frames.
A vintage drug store sign.
I remember my aunt had a bug sprayer like this. She kept it behind the porch door.....it was empty, but we played with it sometimes...
pumping away at pretend bugs, bad guys-- you name it.
Letters from old signs.
I have a small cooler similar to this one.
I enjoy filling it up with iced-down Cokes on a hot summer day.
I never thought of a stapler collection.....but it looks good to me!
Check out the vintage seltzer bottles in their wooden crate on top to this old industrial cart. They were priced at $30.
Lovely candles and old gas cans. Who thought you
would be able to purchase them at the same place?
I hope you've enjoyed this special shopping tour at
THE ART of SIMPLE--stop by the next time you're in town!
