Drop, a women's clothing store, opens on Fourth Street in St. Petersburg

St. PETERSBURG

New clothing store invites women to drop in

The new business called Drop that has opened in a 1920 bungalow at 2012 Fourth St. N has nothing to do with filtered water, nor is it a place to drop off donations to charity. It's a women's clothing store with young contemporary fashions for going out or going to the beach. Owner Caroline Saunders, who lived in Hawaii for a while, stocks the works of some Hawaiian designers as well as handmade eclectic jewelry. She also carries bathing suits and workout clothes.
