I LOVE this shop! I always shop there when I spend a week at the beach. They have a wonderful variety of locally-made products! Recently I made a purchase online and I received the package quickly and well packaged. I will continue to shop there in person and online. I highly recommend this shop for wonderful items!😍

In Southport NC this is by far my favorite store. Cattail has so many unique gifts to choose from. The displays are always so beautiful. The garden room is just an amazing space to walk through.

I wanted to go in and see what they had to offer based on the name but one inside I realized that it wasn't for me. They had stuff that I felt was expensive or could of gotten else where...

Wonderful smells invite you inside to examine many different items that I have not seen elsewhere. Several small rooms of this repurposed cottage each with its own theme. Special gifts for Christmas or birthdays.

Cattail Cottage is a must stop on a visit to Southport! My favorite gift shop in NC - actually anywhere. There is something for everyone! I love their selection of Hot Skwash and quilled cards and seasonal items and locally made gifts. They're friendly and very helpful too!

Rubbery snowman shell already affixed to a plastic light base. Thus product is assembled but 2 prices appear under base as if markdown. If product is a coupling of 2, then 1 price should be presented. My wife was chatting during sale and did not notice discrepancy until outside shop. Rep was a bit defensive when my wife went back in to inquire. Be on your toes for this scheme.

Firstly, please accept our apology for taking so long to respond. We, unfortunately, were not notified of any reviews, whether good or bad. I have been able to update our notification settings. Secondly, please accept my apologies, as the owner, for any defensiveness you received by either myself or my employees. We do strive to give the best customer service possible to all our customers, especially if there is a concern over any issues with our products. The item your wife purchased was, in fact, a display item. The silicone snowman cover was on display on top of one of our flameless Luminara votive candles. Most of the items you find in our store are on display to give you ideas on how you might display them in your home setting. We do double- or even triple-up on items (ex: placing florals with a battery operated candle inside a lantern) so the customer can have a better idea on how to decorate with these items in their own home. The item in question did have two price tags on the bottom--one price for the Luminara candle and one price for the silicone snowman cover. This way, the customer, as well as the store associate, will know the price for each individual item at check out. The customer is able to purchase either item individually or together. We do not want you to go away from your experience with us thinking that we set up "schemes" or "traps" for customers when they are purchasing items from us. We thank you for your response and providing feedback on your experience. Again, please accept our apologies and we will ensure that all of our associates, from the top down, know how to address these types of concerns in the future.

Cattail Cottage is a great little treasure in the midst of the quaint little town of Southport. I found wonderful items for my own beach home in Delaware as well as jewelry gifts for my daughter. Pam, the owner, was so helpful. This spot is a definite revisit on my next trip to Southport!!
