For a different spin on glass as fine art, head to La Mancha Glass Gardens, a studio in Tarpon Springs that features artist-created glass doors with imagery ranging from Samurai warriors to tropical birds as well as carved glass sculpture, etched shower enclosures, glass portraiture and lighted carved glass.
Antiquing in the historic downtown is easy, with several antiques stores and malls within a single block. The Court of Two Sisters, featuring more than 30 vendors specializing in goods from the Victorian era to the 20th century, is a good place to start. Stop into Antiques Forever next door, then check out Bear Haven Land Company Vintage Toys, where you’ll find everything from antique porcelain dolls to Barbies and old-school Star Wars action figures (still in their original packaging, of course).
If you have any energy left after all that shopping, wander past downtown to the Sponge Docks along Dodecanese Boulevard for even more shops and restaurants.
