Items in this shop are very pretty, most are well made, brightly colored beach vacation reminders. However, if you are looking for locally made souvenirs, you will not find them here. I have looked at item after item and they are all "Made in China." You can always peel off the label. 😁 The shop has hundreds of items to... More

So many ecclectic gifts, souvenirs, collectibles...several large rooms that are packed full of interesting things. Personnel are friendly. Restrooms are clean. Parking is allowed while you cross over to stroll along the Marsh Walk.
