“We are happy to bring value to our community,” Light said. “The Highway 87 business corridor is growing, and we love being part of the neighborhood.”
Pik-itz is not a typical antique store. Located at 1922 Highway 87, Light and her business partners, Dean Light and Phyllis Gonzalez set out to design a store that is laid out for the convenience of shoppers. Rather than having booths, the store is set up in department-store- like areas. There is a tool shed, a kitchen area, a children’s area, and an area set up just for DIYers.
They now carry Miss Lillian’s No Wax Chock paint, Prima furniture transfers and an assortment of drawer pulls and hooks.
With over 70 carefully selected vendors, Pik-itz ensures that their inventory is always eclectic, fresh, clean and affordable.
“There is truly something for everyone,” said Light.
There is even a comfortable rocker on the front porch for those who just want to sit and relax while other members of their group browse.
Pik-itz has a wide selection of antique and vintage items, repurposed furniture, local art, gift items like soap, bath bombs and greeting cards and locally made jewelry. New to the line-up they carry freshly made pork rinds and BBQ sauce from Moonshine BBQ Products out of Fort Walton Beach.
In the back of the store is the Pik-itz Art Space where ArtUncorked Navarre and Emerald Coast Gifts offer painting and resin classes. The space is available for a nominal fee for other artists who need space for teaching.
Contact the store for more information.
The Pik-itz property is host to the Highway 87 Outdoor Market at Pik-itz on the first and third Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to 2 p. m. The beautiful back lawn has space for 30 market vendors who sell food, homemade and handmade items.
When the weather is nice, they have live music on the “Starving Artist Stage.” In addition to the Outdoor Markets they also host seasonal family oriented events.
Next to the store is Food Truck Alley. Currently Gypsy’s Anchor offers coffee, sweets and savory snacks. Her lumpia has become a favorite of people visiting the Outdoor Market. Island Dogs closed for the winter but is expected to reopen sometime in March.
We are looking forward to the “only dogs allowed on the beach,” and their refreshing Dole Floats.
Everyone is welcome to come in and browse, reminisce and chat with the friendly staff. If you need something to do, remember “There is always something going on at Pik-itz!”
