Little Sarasota // YOGURTOLOGY

Okay, I know Yogurtology isn’t necessarily a little frozen yogurt shop that no one knows about, but it is fairly new and delicious. This franchise is currently branching out in the states of Florida and Arizona (odd combo, right?).

For those of you who don’t know yet, Yogurtology is a super fresh self-serve frozen yogurt joint. Self-serve, as in an entire wall of levers to pull down and fill your cup with however much fro-yo you want, plus a giant bar of about any topping you could want. Fresh, as in happenin’. 

I think we counted a total of 12 different flavors of frozen yogurt. Twelve! My choice: oatmeal cookie fro-yo with graham cracker crumbles, marshmallows, nutella drizzle, blackberries, and a cream puff. At 49 cents an ounce, mine came out to $2 and some change. (But I didn’t get a whole lot.)

Another reason I really loved Yogurtology was the decor, inside and out. The inside is very modern, with the neatest lamps hanging over the tables. The outside is a super cool setup of all-white tables and chairs with giant umbrellas to keep you cool in the shade. Oh, and not to mention the all-white outdoor couch. This Thursday afternoon affair consisted of myself, Dani-franfrelli (sister), Posh Josh (cousin), and Estah (lookin’ fly in those shades).

Yogurtology is located on South Tamiami Trail across from Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Let me know what flavor combo YOU got.

Little Sarasota // PYEWACKETS

Well folks, I’ve decided to start somethin’ special on the blog here. I’m going to be voyaging around Sarasota (or whatever city I venture to) and uncovering some quirky, quaint, or just plain cool spots that people don’t hear about too much. A lot of businesses in Sarasota are geared toward tourists, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But I want to peel away the surface of the overly-broadcasted restaurants and attractions and show you all some parts of Sarasota you just might be missing out on.

The first place I want to show you is probably the most unassuming hidden treasure of an antique mall you could find. Located on the left side of University Parkway just past 301 (heading toward the beaches) lies Pyewackets Antique Mall. It lies between a few other businesses in a somewhat random strip and is very easy to miss. But let me tell you, when you walk in it is much bigger than you would think.

Room after room after room reveals unique antiques and collectables at very reasonable prices. 

You can literally find almost anything here. Jewelry, pottery, kitchen sets, home decor of all sorts. And the best part of all is that these items are so unique. You could walk into Walmart any day and pick up a $10 lamp that is one of a million just like it. Or you could come to a place like this and find one for $8 that you probably couldn’t find anywhere else if you tried. 

This was my favorite room! I’ll tell you more at the bottom…

And look at this crazy amazing tree necklace holder below. Among some of the pricier items, this was $110 but so beautiful!

I think I might just buy my wedding dress at an antique mall someday…

*Favorites*

Of course, the moment I saw this shelf FULL of old cameras I was like a kid in a candy store just gazing at all the choices. Also, these owl salt and pepper shakers were crazy cool. And this last room…oh, I can’t say enough about all the old fashion hats ($10), vintage purses ($10), antique hat boxes ($3), and vintage ties ($2). It’s all the way in the back so make sure you don’t miss it.

Well peeps, I really hope you check out this place. It’s by far worth a good afternoon of your time. Make sure to say hello to Anna, Daryl, or Ashley and let them know you found out about them through the blog.

Hours:

Monday through Saturday:

10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Sunday:
