Next stop… The Breakers! We parked the car across from Island Home, one of the most popular stores on the Island (and founded by a fellow native Texan, I might add).
As I was enjoying the perfection of Palm Beach, walking hand-in-hand with my husband and soaking in the lovely landscaped stroll towards The Breakers, something most unpleasant occurred… SPLAT!
And most importantly… design icon Carleton Varney served as the lead decorator in a 14 year top-to-bottom renovation of The Breakers.
We had a delicious lunch at The Seafood Bar, overlooking breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. The Seafood Bar is charming and reminiscent of Old Florida. I love the aquarium bar!
The last stop on our shopping spree was Nettie’s Thrift and Consignment. Boy were there some great deals here!
But my hubby (BTW did I mention he is a Saint?!) was hungry and in need of a beverage, so off to the Brazilian Court Hotel (also decorated by Carleton Varney) for Happy Hour.
The only problem with visiting Palm Beach is that I never want to go home… but go home and back to reality we must! I was only able to visit a fraction of the shops on my list. And I was sorry I wasn’t able to visit Circa Who, as they currently have a dresser I simply must have. So I will have to go back to Palm Beach ASAP. :) Please check back for more on C. Bell!
