Shopping in St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, is an experience like no other; quirky boutiques, unique locally owned shops, including surf shops so you can hang ten with the best of them, add in the many antique stores and art galleries, and it soon becomes clear that St. Augustine is the shopaholics nirvana! There’s even a couple of outlet malls where you can get amazing deals on Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Hugo Boss, and so very many high end stores. If you’re trying to kick the shopping habit, you might want to plan a vacation somewhere other than St. Augustine, but if you live to shop, make sure you pack an extra suitcase or two to bring back all the goodies you will find in our shopping destination town!
Quirky and unique, these stores located on St. Georges Street in the heart of the historic district will thrill you with their special products and charm you with their beauty. Red Pineapple will win your heart with its selections of ladies clothing, home décor, and accessories; if you’re looking for an ivory lace dress, white porcelain piggy banks, or some cute earrings that will go with everything you own, Red Pineapple is the store for you!
If a taste of the past, antique furniture, Florida Highway Men paintings, and Depression glass cause your heart to skip a beat, you should plan on stopping in A Step Back in Time Antiques & Collectibles. Located in the heart of the historic district, you won’t be able to miss the large pink building on San Marcos Street. If it doesn’t have what you’re looking for, you probably didn’t need it in the first place!
For funky home decor with a metallic twist, Metalartz Gallery has over 60 artists all creating works of beauty you never knew you needed! Obviously, these are just a small sampling of the great stores and amazing products you can find on your St. Augustine shopping trip; we haven’t even mentioned the 2 outlet malls or the many souvenir stores (ok, we HAVE to mention The Pirate Store and its collection of arrrrrggggh rated pirate accessories; your kids will love you for bringing them back something from this establishment!). Shopping in St. Augustine offers a once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget, especially since you will get to look at the items you brought home every day for the rest of your life!
