This is one of the best places in the area for shopping. Best T-shirts that last for years. Wonderful designs. Also, lots of fudge made right in the store. They'll give you a free sample. My favorite, Key Lime Pie. Lots of beautiful jewelry too.

Offer tastes of their yummy homemade fudge, some of which is sugar free. Great gift shop with nice variety. Friendly staff.

Love, love, love to go here! Best fudge on the island. Great stuff to look at and buy! Jewelry, clothes, knick-knacks, books, Christmas ornaments, and lots more stuff. We always go here when we visit the beach.

We stopped in to check them out, primarily based on all the excellent tripadvisor reviews. Definitely lived up to it's rating - large stock of items; best shop we visited on the island. Nice atmosphere and very friendly service.

My family has a long history of visiting Topsail Island Trading Company. When I was a child, it was always a staple visit for souvenirs (I had quite the collection of beach-themed blanket throws!) and of course a good supply of their homemade fudge to take back home. When my fiancé and I lived in Wilmington, NC we had to... More

Thank you for your review. Family is very important to all of us here at the Trading Co. That was something the original owners (Don & Jean Luther) felt strongly about and we love carrying on the tradition, along with delicious fudge. As a child our family vacationed on Topsail and always visited the store. Now as owners, we love... More

I recently visited this gift shop while visiting family. I noticed the stress free atmosphere right away. I wasn't followed around the store and there was no pressure from sales people to purchase anything. The merchandise speaks for itself! They carry gorgeous locally crafted jewelry, gifts, and the best fudge in the area! There is something for everyone in every... More

I'm biased because my family and I have been vacationing in Topsail for thirty years and I love this place. Jewelry is really nice and Topsail souvenirs are high quality unlike most places. Small area with really cool toys for kids to hang out while parents order fudge to hide from the kids. They offer samples of every fudge available... More

We loved this place! We have been coming to Topsail for 5 years and this was the first time we made it into the shop. The fudge was great. I have 2 teenagers and my oldest son and his girlfriend, my husband and I and we all walked out with something which is rare because we don't usually buy souvenirs.... More

I stopped in the Topsail Island Trading Company after leaving a job in the area just to see what they had. The store is similar to many that you may have visited when on vacation down the shore or anywhere tourist attractions are. A lot of nice gifts that are colorful and fun and usually a little overpriced during tourist... More

So, I come here every year and usually find several items I need. Not so much this year. It could have been the poor service, or the fact that they have had the same stuff for years. I'd like a little variety. And, Pandora is getting dated. The Maralago pieces are beautiful, but overpriced. The fudge is delicious. But, overall,... More
