This is a very nice gift shop with friendly owner. A number of quality items for sale, including nautical antiques and coins. A little pricey, but if you shop wisely you will find something very nice. Loved the accent lamps.

Nice place with an interesting collection of items. There were no less than 3 cats & a dog freely rooming the place with a number of cat beds including 2 by the register. Owner said she would put a sign up.
