Cute store

This store had a wide variety of items. It was much larger than it looked at first. Reasonable prices for unique items.

Lots of trinkets beyond souvenirs. Although we had a 50% off coupon, it was on a specific tee - not the tee we wanted. Enjoyed browsing without pressure. Some were offered a water when entering, guess we didn't look thirsty because we were not. :)

This is not the typical souvenir shop and yes the prices may be a little bit higher than some of the other shops in the area but here you can find really nice gifts with many made locally. Well worth the time to stop and browse for that special gift or souvenir to take home.

Went in expecting the same things as the other souvenir shops- pleasantly surprised! Offered a complimentary bottled water as we entered, then browsed this enormous, well-organized shop full of everything you could imagine related to the beach and the area! Home Decor, garden, elegant jewelllery, toys, and souvenirs.

They have a huge select of gifts. Lots of Vera Bradley bags and accessories. Not really great for kids because lots of breakables! Great place for souvenirs that... More

One area has Christmas ornaments. They are going to be selling ice cream inside the store soon. We had a nice time exploring and... More

I always go here first to check out what they have. They have a little bit of everything. I noticed this year, the prices have gone up but where haven't they? You will love this quaint shop.
