The sisters love to feature local jewelry makers from the Gulf Coast at their shop.
Local artist Jennifer Ponson handcrafts all her jewelry in Pensacola. She can also custom-create anything you would like, including personalized Navarre Beach necklaces and pendants. Another line of local jewelry comes from Rich Studio Creations. Their handmade jewelry is “made with love” from shells found in the Gulf of Mexico.
Southern Specialty sells a variety of wonderful items, ranging from Navarre Beach blankets that feature the latitude and longitude of Navarre Beach to Myra handbags, which are made from recycled military canvas and are remarkably fashionable.
Morton’s favorite part of her job is seeing a customer’s face light up when they find the perfect gift idea or trendy outfit that fits their style.
“Our customers become our friends here at Southern Specialty,” Morton said.
The newest addition to their fashionable inventory is Consuela, a stylish handbag and wallet line made in Austin, Texas.
These accessories stand out with their colorful patterns and accent straps, as well as their sparkly interior lining.
Another hot item on the marker right now is the BrüMate slim koozie, a triple-insulated, stainless steel can-cooler designed exclusively for 12-ounce slim cans such as White Claw, Truly, Michelob Ultra, Corona Light and Red Bull.
The store also carries Melissa and Doug toys, which are educational toys targeted toward early childhood development and play.
Some of the bestselling fashion lines include Katie Loxton of London’s jewelry and purse line and Z Supply clothing line.
Candles come in many shapes and sizes at Southern Specialty, including brands such as Tyler, Capri Blue and Bridgewater candles. For every Bridgewater jar candle sold, a child is fed three meals.
This trendy store, located at 8223 Navarre Parkway, in Palm Harbor Plaza across from Publix in Navarre, is known for its personalized Navarre Beach wall décor, towels, pillows and T-shirts that pinpoint the exact location of our beach town.
“Dumpster Diver” is a new brand of T-shirts the store carries, which are made by 30A from recycled plastic. The plastic is shred into tiny pieces and spun into the fabric of the shirts that read “BEach HAPPY.”
This beachy boutique is also the only local carrier of the famous Pura Vida bracelets, bags and jewelry from Costa Rico.
Looking for a way to stay cool on the hot beach? The WFan Wearable Portable Fan makes that easy.
Southern Specialty also has items for men, despite the misconception that boutiques are only for ladies. They have gentleman gift sets and many kinds of masculine soaps and shaving supplies.
Morton makes sure that everyone feels welcome when they walk through the doors at Southern Specialty.
