If you haven't visited Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast recently, you've missed a shopping opportunity.

Every morning, the main floor hallway of the hospital is transformed into a Christmas shopper's paradise with tables full of unique gifts, holiday decorations, toys, nativity sets, an array of angels, inspirational treasures, costume jewelry, and collectibles - something for everyone on your gift-giving list.

The shop's buyer, Barby Parks, spends all year searching for unique items for the gift shop.

The hospital gift shop is the endeavor of a non-profit fundraising program operated by volunteers of the hospital guild. Proceeds from sales support current and future hospital services.

Located across from the hospital's cafe, gift shop hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will be open for Christmas shopping through Dec. 20.
