Red Daisy, Home Decor, Florida, Vintage Items, Gifts, Jewelry, Neptune Beach, 200 First Street Shoppes, North Florida, First Coast

Discovering new beach towns!! It has been a lot of fun.  Last week I stayed in Atlantic Beach, but right next to it, in the next block is Neptune Beach. 

I found a cluster of shoppes at 200 First Street.  There are 7 businesses located at this location.  What’s unique about it, is that they are all own and operated by women. 

Some of these women have been born and raised in this community.  Yes, those locals and natives I have talked about in past posts.  They contribute to the community by working together and they support each other. 

If you find yourselves in this area on a Friday night stop by because there will be music in the courtyard until October from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m.

I spent time checking Red Daisy, one of the stores at 200 First Street.  The owner?  Tracy Raymond.  The address is 201 Lemon Street, Suite 304, Neptune Beach, FL 32266.  Tel. 904-339-0137.  E-mail thereddaisy@comcast.net.

At first I thought it was just for outdoor decor, you know patio, etc. etc.  As I came in I discovered that there is so much more.  Actually, the store is pretty big.

Tracy was so nice and full of information.  She is a native and this store reflects her passion for antiques; Florida vintage items and the contemporary designs, as well.  She likes to mix things up.

The stores has paintings, flower arrangements, linens, towels, jewelry and those vintange items I have been mentioning.

During the 1940’s and 1950’s it was a time when the U.S. interstate system came about.  People took to the roads and states wanted to capitalized on tourism.  They made easily packable souvenirs.  One such souvenir was a tablecloth that showed the tourist areas of that particular state.  Those vintage tablecloths are now sought after.

Red Daisy has several of them.  One that caught my attentions was all in red with the alligators around the edge.  Others have different colors.  Some people use them as such, frame them or even make pillows out of them if they are not in the best condition.

The Beaches Town Center is the heart of Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach.  It is where Atlantic Boulevard meets the ocean and just 12 miles east of downtown Jacksonville.  It is a pedestrian friendly area, full of restaurants and shops; a destination appealing to tourists, locals and natives.
