The Chandlery Building

For my money, the Chandlery building is one of our prettiest downtown Fernandina structures.  The detail is just so beautiful.  It was built after the fire of 1876, but the third floor wasn't added until 1901.  Today, it houses two great stores:  the Pineapple Patch ladies' shop (known for their Vera Bradley selection) and French Market Antiques, one of my favorites.  With all of the fabulous architecture on Centre Street it's hard to choose a favorite but this one certainly ranks in the top three for me, even on a cloudy day.
