First Thursday in The Caroline St. Art & Design District
Two years ago, along with several other design related businesses nearby, we created the Caroline Street Art & Design District.
The community includes everything from art galleries to fine clothing boutiques to unique home furnishings shops - even a boutique coffee shop/art gallery.
What began as a few merchants on Caroline and Margaret Streets has evolved into a 2 block by 3 block square of wonderful shops, galleries, and eateries.
Last year Florida Travel & Life magazine featured the District as where "the best Key West Shopping is found."
On the first Thursday of each month, we host an evening "stroll" with each shop offering wine and goodies while shoppers browse. They then can grab a bite at one of the many restaurants in the area.
We're so proud to be a part of the District, and we take this monthly opportunity to display some of our shop favorites.
In honor of our newest line, Annechovie, next week we'll feature the Anne Harwell's lovely work. Having fallen in love with her chairs, I perused her Etsy shop, and we are now carrying her note cards and prints!
I'm just thrilled to carry this fabulous line - and from a Florida girl at that!
Come back next Friday for pictures of the upcoming First Thursday festivities. In the meantime, you can expect to see some posts on other District members.
