What a great place - filled with local artisan's products. My kids and I were able to find great things for our significant others that were actually really nice - instead of the tacky stuff that you generally find in souvenir shops.

There is clothing. There are destination tshirts, baseball caps and a selection of dresses, coverups, and hats. It is a small store, but there is a little bit of everything.
