I was instantly attracted to this place when I drove by. The store sells a lot of ocean-themed merchandise, including plates, serving bowls and such. I came here looking for dried star-fish and was ecstatic to find that there are multiple choices. The store itself is large for a gift shop and one can easily spend at least 30 minutes to an hour here looking for that summertime beach happiness. I ended up with a bag of items evoking good, warm memories for my friends. I will be back to this store. They also sell sweets like fudge and they have a ice cream parlor adjacent.

stopped in to pick up a pair of earrings for my niece. This place has a large selection of just about everything.
I'm sure she will like them.
I'll stop in again.

Do you really need ALL of those shop lifting signs? Isn't ONE sign enough anymore? it was little overbearing if you ask me- JUST ARREST the Shoplifters.

This shop is so neat! If you have anything (bathroom or bedroom) that is beach themed at home or a beach house this is the place to buy the coolest decorating things! There is also typical souvenir type stuff and plenty of knick knacks for kids. I was really in awe at the selection of beach theme decorating items. We will be back! The prices were also very reasonable.

A far better alternative to Sunsations, The Sea Shell Shop has souvenirs for all ages. Great beach themed items for the home. It is a fun way to spend an hour or two on a rainy (or very hot day).
