I have wanted to stop at this store for the last few years but, I always run out of time due to spending my visits outlet shopping. This trip I spent the weekend in Rehoboth and told everyone in my group that we had to stop. I was expecting shells, shells, and more shells. Well they do sell some shells but, the store is packed with all kinds of stuff mostly souvenirs. Prices range from very expensive to very cheap.
