“A little bit of everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The shops in Periwinkle way have lots of unusual gifts as well as T shirts and such. We just enjoyed the variety. Owners were friendly and never gave us the "another tourist" look.

“Be prepared for long waits in traffic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Getting anywhere on sanibel island is difficult...be prepared for traffic everyday...plan on leaving to go anywhere a good 1/2 hour early so you can sit in traffic for awhile. The shops were very expensive on Periwinkle. I did get a nice hoodie at the T shirt place for $25.95

“Nice shopping!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The shops are mostly touristy and cute. A lot of folks ride bikes around to the shops. I really liked The Butterfly shop- lots of cute clothes and friendly people :)

“Nothing special here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Typical Florida tourist shops. Some sculpture is available. Wide overhangs make shopping pleasant even when raining. Nothing here to ever draw me back.

“Terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Get on your bike and ride through Periwinkle Way. Lots of wonderful shops, beachy stuff, galleries, and restaurants. If you ride on the bikeways, you don't even feel guilty eating all that great ice cream they serve there!
