I agree that many items in this gift shop are overpriced but each year I find one or two items that are fairly unique to take home. I think the shop could cut back on the Lilly P merch and bring in more beach related...More

It's another tourist trap. Some cute items but way overpriced. It's one thing to set a higher price on local artwork or a locally made item, but this is just boutique crap they order and mark up. :/

My son and niece spent a good half an hour in the small children's section of Bumble Bee. I can't say that I got to explore much more of the store, but we got what we came for! My niece found her beach souvenir here...More

We stopped here on vacation and loved it but WOW it is expensive. The clothes are pretty unique which is why we were willing to play those prices. Good for personal shopping but not for souvenirs.
