In the SpotlightIN THE SPOTLIGHT


Pickers & Peddlers 



I'm excited to have this opportunity to introduce myself, Edie Bennett, my family and my new venture, Pickers & Peddlers in Heritage Village especially since this area played a part in my husband, Burt's family history. My father-in-law, Hallie Bennett was born in a house on Citrus Avenue so our family will have another beginning there!


Burt's very proud of his Citrus County heritage which began when his family came to this area in the 1830's. His love of this community runs as deep as his roots which is something he's impressed upon our children: Colleen, 25, Ben, 24, Jake, 21 and Luke, 18. Ben is married to Betsy and they have a 4 year old daughter, Brooke.


Even though Pickers & Peddlers will open on November 12th, it's been taking shape for the last 25 years or so. I've always loved the hunt for treasures. Of course Burt didn't always think of it the same way. He once said if our furniture didn't wiggle or wobble, we wouldn't own it! It really doesn't do either, but our home does have character.
