Historical Society gift shop reopens

by: Observer Staff

Sarasota history buffs celebrated the grand reopening of the Historical Society of Sarasota County’s gift shop Friday, Oct. 5. The reopening was marked with a wine-and-cheese reception on the back porch of the Bidwell-Wood House. The gift shop features one-of-a-kind works of art, crafts and books from more than 75 local artisans. Proceeds from the gift shop help support the Historical Society, but 70% of the sales go directly to the artisans.
