So much stuff! As I wandered though the rooms I was mentally decorating our future beach house. Yep, this has to be where the stuff in our rental came from and it is a well appointed house. I bought a couple of things but there was not a lot of free room in the truck. Maybe the next trip I... More

A place to shop for "those hard to buy for" people. This place is huge and unique and absolutely fascinating. This place does not deal in typical tourist items...every item is unique and well thought out. I guarantee that non shoppers will be fascinated and interested.

I have to visit every time I'm in the area. I love this store. I always find something for everyone when I'm there. Even those hard to find Christmas pieces. It's gorgeous and just fabulous!!! Will go back again next chance I get!!

They must have close to 100 decorated trees! I lost count! Really awesome. So many different ideas for trees and the ornaments are so unique. We were passing through the town and stopped. Sure wish I had more room in the car so I could have purchased more!

Love this huge gift shop with so many choices. Not your normal beach tourist trap items. Jewelry, purses, clothing and gift ideas for any occasion. The fudge is made right there so it is super fresh and creamy. I bought five types and loved them all. Can't wait to go again

Great way to spend some time out of the sun. They have a wide selection of holiday assortments (xmas and halloween) and are worth wandering through even if just to get ideas. They also carry Jim Shore products and lots of beachy decor. Don't miss the xmas village in the back!

Store has a large variety of gifts and interesting shopping items. Plan to spend a while browsing the store for gifts, souvenirs, snacks, ice cream, fudge, large Christmas area, and plenty of T-shirts.

We vacationed in ocean isle this year and this place was recommended to us by a friend! It was amazing there is literally something for everyone! They have an awesome Christmas section and we got some cute personalized beach ornaments. We also got amazing home made fudge, t shirts and other souvenir items! You will not be disappointed!

The store it self goes on and on forever. Very large. If you cannot find something in here for everyone on your list, then it cannot be found. Unbelievable!! The homemade fudge is delicious. My husband and I spend a little over an hour in there. I am sure me and one of my friends could spend half a day... More
