“Periwinkle Place not the place to go”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I have been going to Sanibel Island for years and always enjoyed shopping at Periwinkle Place. Not so much lately. Not what it used to be. The shops are artsy, which is fine if you live in a warm place and want to take that home, but the clothing shops look like they are for old grandma's and really don't appeal to me. They used to have some great "young" boutiques, not so much now. Sorry to see it go down.

Lee G,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, we always appreciate our guests letting us know about their experience.

Our shops offer items for people of all ages, from babies to teenagers, young adults to senior citizens. Butterfly Beach and Her Sports Closet are just a few of our shops that cater to those looking for more youthful apparel. On the other hand, yes, we do offer clothing for women at shops like"The Original" Chicos and Trader Ricks. We believe in providing a variety of great apparel, gifts and souvenirs that will appeal to any Sanibel visitor or local.

We urge you to come visit us again and give our boutiques another look, we are chockfull of trendy and fashionable items for all!

“Found some great treasures here.”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

I enjoyed the great unique upscale jewelry, clothes, shoes and gifts. I filled a quiet evening walking around than ate at the restaurant in the walking outdoor mall.

Made a special trip here to see the original Chico's. Was a good trip! A two story store with great sales people. (Especially Herme) Hit an awesome sale too!

“Love it!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

No trip to Florida is complete without a visit to Periwinkle Place. It's an eclectic mix of shops in a beautiful setting and I don't think I've ever come away empty-handed! This time we ate at Blue Giraffe which was little more than average but still enjoyed the whole experience and we were a party in an age range of 80 to 14!

Stopped to get souvenirs. It was a pleasant surprise. I got T-shirts, sweatshirts, and Christmas ornaments! So glad we stopped there.
