Her name is Theresa, but you can call her Sweet Tee.

“That’s my nickname, and that’s what my friends and family have always called me,” said Theresa Barrett, owner of Sweet Tee’s Designer Consignment and Antique Boutique.

After spending nearly 30 years successfully running consignment stores in the 30A South Walton County AreaBarrett knew it was time for a change.

“I’ve always loved this place and visited Pensacola for years,” Barrett said. “I felt my time in 30A was over and I was ready for the downtown vibe.”

Sweet Tee's Designer Consignment and Antique Boutique is located at 1603 N. Ninth Ave.  in Pensacola.

But Barrett didn’t come to Pensacola alone. She also brought her social media presence with her.

“The Facebook group is where everyone can get the latest updates on upcoming events, new arrivals and sales,” Barrett said. “I also want to continue to update my loyal long-time customers so they can come see me.”
