The owner was very rude to my son. All my son did was pick up a figit spinner to show to his cousin. The owner yelled very hatefully to my son to stay in the front. Who wants their kids treated like that? We replaced...More

Picked up a shell net and back pack to use for the beach. The shopkeeper was friendly and helpful. There was a LARGE variety of souvenir type items for purchase. Prices were a little high but selection made up for it.

We also had a very bad experience. Mr. Tuttle sits behind a counter and yells at children. He yelled at our 4 year old granddaughter when she tried to show her mother something to buy and he did the same thing with my nine year...More
