What to Expect

This a truly unique shopping experience. Far different than the ordinary store found on an island waterfront, this business features historical, and often rare items from a long-gone era. We have enjoyed visiting for years now when we vacation to the island, and this year was no exception. We purchased several items that we will enjoy for years to come, and then pass to the next generation. Great staff and the owner personally worked with us on the pricing to ensure we were able to get the items we wanted at a price we could afford. Great family owned small business. We will be back on our next visit for sure!!

If you are looking for a unique shopping experience, this is your place. We went in looking for a coin pendant. The owner knows everything about everything in the store. He very patiently told us about each piece we were interested in. It took us a long time to decide, but he didn't mind at all. Great place if you are interested in maps, shipwreck pieces, art, beautiful antiques, coins, and coin pendants. HIGHLY recommend.
