It's a nice place to wander around and get a few souvenirs, as well as get a few pics with the giant lobster :)

“Spend your money here for gifts & keepsakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

This is the "real deal"! Talk to the artists, admire the MADE IN USA giftware, etc. and maybe even buy a piece or two. Almost fully occupied, unusual and lovely selections of clothing, jewelry, giftware, ceramics. We went into a very cool little shop called Bella Sol that sold custom scented soaps, lotions, body washes, etc. Magnificent dichroic glass jewelry! Loved, loved, loved this little artist colony. Also visited another artist who had a lovely shop (on the left side toward the front) and was a cat rescue person (my kind of gal!)

“So-So”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

The large lobster out front caught our eye. Most places were closed or out of business. The things that were there were nice but pricey. Seems most things on the Keys are pricey so maybe that's "normal" here. We were in & out in under an hour... way under a hour.

“cool place to pass the time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

nice nick nacks and stuff inside, some pretty cool art to browse... some from locals. If you need a souvenir nice place to check out, reasonably priced for Islamorada.

Plus nice foto op outside!
