Our spirited boutique / gallery/ studio is the vision of the artist Melissa Haist. She renovated a charming two-story, Key West style bungalow on a brick-paved street in the quaint bayside town of beautiful Safety Harbor, Florida.
Complete with a welcoming front porch and classic gazebo, Tupelo on 4th is a haven for lovers of the inspired. Guests spend time enjoying original works of art and a wide array of innovative gift items from popular boutique retailers.
Tupelo on 4th carries unique product lines. The vision for the shop will continue to grow based on the interests of its visitors and the artistic influences of our eclectic mix.
As a contribution to the community, Tupelo on 4th will soon be holding art classes, and once the mosaic studio opens, a wide variety of one-of-a-kind picture frames, mirrors, outdoor architectural installations, and commissioned pieces will be available for sale.
Melissa's love for mosaics came about when she spent her junior year of college studying in Seville, Spain. Besides being moved by the amazingly warm and wonderful people, she was forever changed by the landscape of color the art of mosaics brought to the floors, walls, tables, chairs, countertops, dishes, driveways, buildings, and parks.
The beautiful tile seemed to move and tell stories of the town just by the way they were laid in place, mixed, matched, and used all together. The artistry captured under one roof at Tupelo on 4th is a mosaic; a microcosm of diversity coming together to create one exceptional work. We welcome you to take part in our collective experience.
