The owner was very rude to my son. All my son did was pick up a figit spinner to show to his cousin. The owner yelled very hatefully to my son to stay in the front. Who wants their kids treated like that? We replaced...More

Ugh! Well thankfully Mr. Tuttle wasn't there when we visited to mistreat my four year old niece! In fact, there was a very kind older lady who was so helpful and treated our little one with respect. If I'd read the other reviews about how...More

Stopped here as it's the only shop between the causeway junction & the lighthouse & also needed an ice cream from the shop next door. Not the cheapest but what does one expect on Sanibel, crammed with sea themed gifts at various prices. Bought a...More

Picked up a shell net and back pack to use for the beach. The shopkeeper was friendly and helpful. There was a LARGE variety of souvenir type items for purchase. Prices were a little high but selection made up for it.

We are a friendly, well behaved family. We've been to Sanibel (and this shop) before. However, my son was looking at an item (not expensive, just $15) and the proprietor came out from behind the counter, grabbed the item and said, "Put them back!". Heck,...More

We also had a very bad experience. Mr. Tuttle sits behind a counter and yells at children. He yelled at our 4 year old granddaughter when she tried to show her mother something to buy and he did the same thing with my nine year...More

I love seahorse so of course I had to stop at this cute little shop. It was one of those ships where you know you're going to find at least one thing you have to have-I found a couple. They sell beautiful handcrafted jewelry with...More

I've shopped this store for several years. Always found the owner to be interesting and informative. Big problem this year. Nobody seemed to want to open the shop. Went several times in three weeks to shop and the store was never open. No posted hours....More
