If you are having a pirate birthday party this is the place to find it or just want some fun stuff for the little pirates in your life. There is all kinds of pirate gear from a pirate adventure kit, to flags, caps, hats, necklaces, even pencils with pirates on them. Or a small flask for your grog. There is a whole section to intrigue you. Replicas from old pirate days, pistols, knives, and nautical decor from ship wheels to bells. Plenty of gifts, I liked the treasure map in a bottle, a 200 piece puzzle just $10. Very novel.
You can find a little of everything in here as you browse and listen to the great Jimmy Buffet playing. All kinds of souvenirs from Ft. Myers Beach including big shark teeth and rings made of shark teeth at $3. and plenty of shell jewelry. The abalone hand crafted bracelets can be found for $10.
