This seaside gift shop was clean and neat. It had merchandise in every price range - junk and t shirts for the kids to artwork and Vera Bradley for the adults, and the prices were decent. I bought a lovely Christmas ornament as a reminder of this wonderful trip.

This place has a variety of things that you can buy, but the Fudge is the main attraction. Make sure you stop by this play while in the area!

I come here every time I visit the area and it's one of my favorite shops. It has a wide variety of things from t-shirts, Tervis cups, boutique type jewelry, Christmas items, really something for everyone! It has a cool pirate ship outside for kids and rockers on the porch for the hubbies!

We were told this place was not like the chain stores on main street myrtle. Maybe a step off, but not by much. Only a small selection of US made local items. Even the taffy is from VA. Mainly stuff from China. There was fudge but I'm not sure where it was made. Some were offered a complementary water. I... More

The shop was good, was offered water, but declined it. I wish it offered more local, handmade items. I saw several things i loved that looked handmade, but turned it over and was saddened to see "made in _____" (faraway place). So i didnt actually buy anything from here (others in my party did though). The reason i gave 5... More

Lots of unique gifts and souvenir items. Everything from summer T's, swimsuits, etc. to a complete area filled with Christmas decorations and items. Jewelry, home décor items and a great little "soda, ice cream, and candy" counter area. You will not find a more diverse selection of goods to browse and enjoy in the entire Murrells Inlet area.

Staff is friendly, offered a bottle if water when I walked in but other than that did not interact further except to tell me to have a good day. There was a large selection of merchandise but much of it is incredibly overpriced. They have an app for smartphones that has discounts available for merchandise but it is somewhat clunky... More
