Salty Marsh Mercantile

Downtown Panama City

Three new stores have popped up in the burgeoning scene of Harrison Avenue:

– Salty Marsh Mercantile offers contemporary pieces with Southern style and urban flare. You’ll also find locally crafted gifts, such as homemade honey and candles, to pass along this holiday season.

For a quick warm-up, stop by Vinny and Bay’s Coffee and Eatery for a cup of joe and some treats. Shop owners and close friends Madeline Lovejoy and Baylee Hanson plan to employee people with special needs in the hopes of providing these individuals with a fulfilling, comfortable job experience.

– The Fringe Gallery has received a complete renovation, opening the space up for larger displays of art and jewelry. For those who enjoy abstract and edgy statement pieces, the exotic art of Fringe may have the decor just for you.

City Market Destin

Already popular at its Crestview location, the Lena Ellen Boutique is bringing its ever-growing collection of modern, designer brands to Destin.

– Lux Exchange has moved to City Market Bayside. The new location offers a renovated space with the same, fabulous stock of designer purses, sunglasses and accessories. Lux for your ladies will ensure they have the happiest of holidays!
