A dream of having a place to go with their kids to enjoy a scoop of ice cream was the catalyst to opening Aunt Elsie’s Ice Cream Shop in June of 2022. Sisters Amanda Quick and Grace Cannon liked to do this with their families while on trips and realized Brewton needed an ice cream shop of its own.

Dee Probst, owner of Baldwin Feed & Seed in Bay Minette, didn’t originally set out to own a feed & seed store. She had been a UPS driver for many years and loved her job. An untimely accident left her unable to drive for the delivery company. She had patronized the feed store for many years so when she heard it was for sale in 2007 and, without any retail experience, Dee decided that would be the next chapter of her life.

While working as a floral designer, Terri Slay saw an increasing demand for large ferns as decoration for events and weddings. She felt this was a challenge that she could take on, and in 1999, became a wholesale provider. Eventually, the business was expanded to include a retail nursery that offers houseplants, hanging baskets, and succulents, as well as shrubs and fruit trees. Lots of decorative items and yard art can be found, too.

The Holley House Bed and Breakfast was originally built as a private home in 1906. Through the years, it has undergone many reincarnations, including the first hospital in Escambia County, apartments and a retirement home.

The B & B has been in operation now for over three years.
