We love shopping here when in town and always, always find something to bring home. Wall art, kitchen wares, and unique Christmas decorations. Excellent customer service and they always wrap items nicely to transport.

There's plenty here to look at especially if you are looking for something to do with the beach. Lots of accessories for the home. Very nice things but not overly pricey.

One of the better shops on the strand in my opinion. The quality and assortment of goods is high, but the prices are more affordable than that of most of the surrounding boutiques. The staff is friendly too.
