Meet Carol Ann Dennison,
who opened Annabelle Butterfly in November 2009 in Gulfport. Carol Ann
opened her art & vintage shop because she wanted to work with things
she loves: antiques, curiosities, interesting books, vintage
She also wants to encourage everyone to "reuse the
good old things" and to support the work of local artists. One artist
featured in her shop is fellow LS1 member Cathy Lees, whose colorful vision of local shopping can be seen on LocalShops1.com's home page.
Drop by and say hi to Carol Ann at her shop, 5332 Gulfport Blvd., and use your 1Card to save 11 percent on any purchase.
