BACK IN BUSINESS: Baker Block Museum revives Baker Mercantile

Published: Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 12:35 PM.

"It's repurposed, vintage and handmade pieces," Enzor said. "It's nice stuff."

Shoppers will find handcrafted works from regional artists and crafters, as well as locally produced honey, cane syrup and soaps, McSween said.

Baker Block Museum staffers were excited that they will at last have a museum store, located just inside the mercantile door. Stock includes regional history books, including both volumes of "The Heritage of Okaloosa County."

"We really have a niche for the books," museum director Ann Spann said.

"And you'll always be able to buy the calendars here when they're available," Enzor said, referring to the popular "Lost Okaloosa" calendar, which sold out of both print runs at the end of 2013.

With less than two weeks remaining until March 1 opening day, McSween surveyed the bustle of activity as contractors finished last-minute details and vendors stocked their booths.

The Baker Mercantile is almost back in business.
