They have very high prices. $120 for a skirt???? $40 for a bracelet, $70-80 for a blouse. No thank you! I'll go spend my money where I can get 1/2 a wardrobe's worth of nice clothes for the price of one of their outfits. And, one of the ladies' working was staring at us when we pulled up. Real friendly.... More

Enjoyed the shopping experience very much! Great selection of jewelry pieces. I especially went to see their Alex and Ani pieces and loved their other unique pieces. Prices were reasonable and staff very friendly.

I visited this store specifically to buy an Alex & Ani sand dollar bracelet. (yes I could have ordered this online or purchased elsewhere but wanted a memento from our visit to the OBX.) We arrived at the store about 6:00 on a Thursday evening. They had one silver bracelet left in stock. The sign on the door said "free... More

We recently visited Nags Head for the first time on a large fsmy vacation. We all love Alex and Ani and the four ladies of the group made multiple visits to poke around and pick out bracelets to remember our trip. Lots of unique items. Higher end. Neat building.
