Burns Square in Sarasota is bursting with specialty shops and fabulous antique stores. Located just a short walk from main street it is not to be missed. One of my most favorite destinations is Jack Vinales Antiqueswith its eclectic collection of items from the 20th Century. A Sarasota landmark since 1989, it attracts locals and tourists alike with some of the most interesting collectibles in the city. Jack is usually in the shop and he is as likable as he is knowledgeable.
From pottery to jewelry to furniture and more, this is a wonderful place to browse and I just bet you cannot leave without buying something. And, if you are harboring a collection of the works he carries he will be happy to take a look at it if you are planning on selling the entire set or just a piece of it. Please click on his website for some marvelous temptations.
