These Are a Few of My Favorite Palm Beach Shops

These Are a Few of My Favorite Palm Beach Shops

By Carleton Varney- Special to the Palm Beach Daily News

Who else in Palm Beach has noticed what seems to be far more traffic than usual this season? It seems like everyone wants to either live on the island or visit it.

And that means it may take me a little longer in the car to visit some of my favorite destinations, but the following stops are worth the red lights, the traffic tie-ups and the bridge crossings.

All the buzz: Well, now we can all enjoy breakfast at Hive Bakery and Cafe. The establishment at 1603 S. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach is a tribute to the talents of interior designer and owner Sara McCann. The Palm Beach resident is truly a queen of style, befitting her Hive collection of businesses.

    Mr. Varney,

    One more thing, could you make the print a little larger. My eyes are not what they used to be.

    Thanks for the Georgia Ave reminder.

    Antique Provence looks great. I must visit. Although everything I looked at had no price, but said “inquire”. Are prices fluctuating that rapidly that they are hesistant to give a price. Or maybe, if I have to ask the price…..

    I have long been a fan of your style and design and wanted to thank you for the inspiration and joy you have brought to so many. I don’t believe anyone could walk into a Carlton Varney designed room or resort without feeling uplifted and happy!
    I look forward to reading your post while enjoying my Saturday morning coffee! Keep the column and the color coming!
