Pik-itz is more than your average antique mall. Located at 1922 Highway 87, Pik-itz is a “little store with a big personality,” designed with the shopper in mind.
They sell a range of items from antique and vintage pieces to new, handmade items. They have art, handmade children’s clothing, various gift items and assorted handmade jewelry.
Pik-itz takes pride in their local vendors making some of their products right here in Navarre.
“Ninety-five percent of what is in this store is made in the United States, some in Navarre,” Light said. “So, this is the made-in-America store.”
The colorful store has 60 vendors, which is unique because Light doesn’t rent booth space. Instead she does managed inventory, where vendors pay a flat fee based on their type of inventory.
“They just bring their inventory to me with a price list, and I place it. I clean it. I rearrange it. So, all the kitchen items go in the kitchen area. All the tools go in the same area,” she said. “Why not design a store for the shoppers?”
