Stopped in here to look around after lunch during their Greek Festival - so many different types of sponges - who knew! The staff was nice and explained how they collect the sponges. Prices were reasonably.

On our recent trip to Tarpon Springs, we stopped in their shop. Athena was so nice. She showed us the different sponges and told us about them. I will buy from her again.

Great place to buy natural sea sponges. You have a variety to choose from. Prices were better than buying them in Greece. Would go back to restock.
