"Brocante" means "a second-hand store" in French. Visitors to such a place could expect to find a garage sale or flea market atmosphere.

But locals don’t have to go to France to experience it.

New shop owners Lydia Smith and her partner Teresa Farrar have opened Brocante in Miramar Beach on the south side of U.S. Highway 98 across from Sandestin. The store is located in the former location of J Miller and sports a burgundy store front with a gray striped awning.

Inside, shoppers will find much of the merchandise is second hand, but of the quality high-end variety.

"We are designing it as a high-end antique mall and consignment shop featuring furniture, home décor items, jewelry, upscale clothing, artwork, and locally made furniture," said Smith. "It's a different concept."

The clothing is gently worn (possibly only once or twice) and sparkly and includes minks and other furs.
