The gift shop is located in the front corner of the Museum. It carries a nice line of jewelry from earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and toe rings. Many have a sea life theme and there are earrings and bracelets hand made by local artists.
Key chains, luggage tags and a new line of silk scarfs plus small items for easy carrying while traveling home are available. Over 20 children’s books related to the sea and beach are popular sellers. Sam the Sea Cow is one of the most interesting along with turtle, fish and sea life activity books to make reading fun for the younger set.
History books by local authors are a shop high-lite. These well priced books tell stories of past local island life as well as several fiction stories. A perfect gift item! Museum T’shirts, totes and hostess gifts make the shop a unique place to shop while in the Museum.
