Heritage Village Walking Map...

I am pleased to announce that we have two new shops NOW OPEN in Heritage Village. "All About Nature" and "Captain's Cargo" are bringing many wonderful additions to our "Everything Village."

"All About Nature," owned by Roger and Pat Osborne, started their journey in the retail world, in the small blue cottage where GlassWerx resided today. As the business grew, Roger made a few moves  into larger locations, including the Crystal River Mall. Today, "All About Nature," is located in Suite D and Suite E of the Tolle Addition between Manatee Toy Company and Hot Heads, the Art of Hair. We are excited to have Roger and Pat back with their Nautical and Coastal Decor, including Nature-themed gifts. Dot Koehler and Cathy Zorn are still a part of his crew and ready to help you find the perfect treasure!

"Captain's Cargo," owned by Angie Ewing is no stranger to downtown either. Angie is excited to unload Cargo in Suite B in the Tolle Addition on Citrus Avenue, between Aardvark Kayak and Manatee Toy Company. The Pirates of the Nature Coast travel the World to bring unique gifts and decor back to "Captain's Cargo." Key West Aloe Products, Yankee Candles, Department 56, Holiday, Nautical, and Souvenirs are just to name a few of what you will find at this Coastal-themed shop. Angie is a very creative addition and I know you will enjoy what she has to add to "The Shoppes of Heritage Village."

Happy Shopping!

Laura Lou
