The hubby and I took a road trip to Arcadia on a perfect Saturday in April. We had never been to this hidden gem of a town and we were happy we made this journey.

We visited Arcadia for some antique shopping. The historical Opera House built in 1906 is a combination museum and antique shop. Seeing the space and reading about it's past was a great experience.

Stopped at the Opera House after spending some time at the outdoor antique fair. An interesting gathering of all sorts of collectibles but nothing "high end". The second floor museum has some nice bits of history you should take a look at while visiting. Loads of antique and misc. stores fill Oak Street.

Quite an eclectic representation of antiquities but James at the Opera House could brush up on customer appreciation.

We drove out to Arcadia from Port Charlotte. So many antique stores!!! The opera house certainly is the setting for a store. Amazing to consider what went on there with the stage, the balcony & those steps!

Eclectic mix of history and antiques. Fun just to browse around the different rooms of treasures. The whole Arcadia downtown was fun for antique shopping, but this one is different.
