Arcadia, Florida is a truly bright, special town. The downtown Historic District, built in the 1800's, has 24 wonderful antique stores along with restaurants and specialty shops. They are all on 4 blocks of West Oak Street. Antique dealers and collectors from all over Florida and other states flock to the famous ANTIQUE FAIR which is held the fourth Saturday of every month. Most stores are open daily, but please call ahead. Summer hours will vary. You can park your car and shop all day and
it will take all day.
Our stores offer a wide variety of items: primitives, folk art, military, glassware, books, pottery, furniture, jewelry, and numerous other items. Since there are so many antique dealers here in Arcadia it is always a treasure hunt to find what your are looking for . People enjoy strolling down the street, sitting on the bench having a wonderful dessert from the ice cream shop, or a piece of pie from one of our several home town restaurants.
