Bittersweet Antiques Fall Open House in Brooksville, Florida

Bittersweet Antiques Fall Open House in Brooksville, Florida

What a great day! This morning I headed out and travelled some of the most beautiful backroads through “old style” Florida landscapes. Peaceful, quiet and thought provoking. I came up with lots of ideas and solved many problems on my lone journey to Brooksville! I was headed to Bittersweet Antiques Fall Open House…I was thrilled when I pulled in the long drive and arrived here…

Beautiful displays welcomed you from the front screen door and out to the sleeping porch. Eye candy everywhere! I was happy to see so many of my prim friends and dealers and had such a good time hunting and picking for just the right treasures.

Fun was had by all and I would highly recommend marking your calendars not to miss any of the special events at Bittersweet Antiques. Irma and Pat are talented, friendly and do a wonderful job. I can’t wait until Christmas Open House!

Here’s a peek…hope to see YOU there next time around!
