TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — One of the exciting parts of our new weekend morning show is highlighting some of the best and most unique parts of our community.

It's called Totally Tallahassee and tells the hidden stories of the best places and people that embody what makes this community so special.

This week we're taking you north of I-10 to introduce you to a woman who has been recycling the history of her store for decades.

Sandy Biggie owns Secondhand Sandies, a store filled with antiques you'll only find there.

Biggie says she's been thrift shopping since she was a little girl but it wasn't until she got older she realized the value of having something unique.

"And when I look at a piece, I say, 'Wow, I wonder what the history of that piece is, I wonder how many families ate at that table, I wonder what kind of dinners they had on that table, what kind of conversations they had,'" said Biggie.

Biggie says she never throws anything away because the stories of the pieces aren't over.

Sunday morning on ABC 27, Veronika Vernachio will take you through Secondhand Sandies and show how the store can turn something broken into a family's newest treasure.
