Seek and ye shall buy at One Amazing Find boutique

The new Tarpon Springs shop specializes in secondhand decor and more.

Tarpon Springs is welcoming another consignment store — One Amazing Find — to their historic downtown antique district. Even though the store has already become a member of Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce, they are far from settling into their new home at 106 E. Tarpon Ave.

In fact, they are hosting a ribbon cutting event — complete with an open house, reception, and free prize giveaways —on Friday, April 17, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. There will also be a charity event, which will run all weekend long and goes to support Suncoast Animal League.

One Amazing Find is located in the 100-year-old Meres Building, and features over 4,000-plus square feet of showroom with everything from modern to mid-century to chic to antique. You will also find furniture that has been painted, stained, refinished, and re-purposed. Customers are more than welcome to sit in, ask questions, and learn about preserving antiques in their open workshop, too.

Yes, you have a place to learn about that refurnishing project you found on Pinterest!

One Amazing Find Proprietor Lesley McDaid says the store is very selective with what they deem acceptable to showcase in-store.

“We have a vision for how our showroom should present itself, and in the value and diversity we offer clients. And I am so pleased that our efforts are well reflected in peoples' positive reactions as they explore to discover their own amazing finds,” says McDaid.

One Amazing Find is different from other consignment and antique stores because it presents its items both in-real-life and online to consignors and buyers — using technology to help you find or sell the perfect piece.

You might be surprised that this consignment and antique shop goes beyond just preserving old furniture. One Amazing Find also “promises to add to the building’s rich history while preserving, restoring and enhancing [the Meres Building], and the supporting business community, they inherited.”

If this modern take on old pieces jibes with you, visit, or better yet, stop in for their Ribbon Cutting event on Friday, April 17. It's free and open to the public.
