“Great shop on boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We hit this shop every year that we visit! It is conveniently located on the boardwalk. The place is huge - multiple floors - and has whatever you might want as a souvenier!

“It's a maze.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

It's a huge store with cheap soveniers. My mom and sister bought stuff but I thought it was cluttered and junky.

“Bad.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Bunch of cheap over priced junk will not return. Maybe if you have children it would be okay but not fun for 20 year olds. I don't understand how it is 'the best gift shop on the east coast'

“Wonderful shop...Something for everyone!”

I took my family, hubby, 4 kids and myself here shopping for souvenirs. They have jewelery, knick nacks, clothing, signs, anything you would want.
