I just thought this was pretty average and did not have anything very unique. Lots of wood and ceramic type items.

Have seen the giant lobster out front as I have driven by and this time I pulled in. Title says it all. A very interesting gathering of local artists and what not.

Lots of quirky little shops. An eccentric locale. Loved the shopping here. Could have spent more time. Prices were fair and selection was great. Was able to strike many souvenir requests off my list here.

Oh...and there is that huge lobster out front. Hand made works of art by artisans on site. The hand made and painted light switches (custom too) were nice, as were the lobster trap frames.

Every single time I'm in the Keys I have to stop here. Cute things and it's like a little village full of artisans making and selling their goods. Of course, there is also the regular kitschy souvenirs also. Leave yourself a good hour and take pics with the big lobster out front, get a smoothie out back and enjoy the... More

We stopped in to see the huge lobster in the front but decided to grab lunch while we were there. The food was amazing! My husband had the lobster roll and said it's close to the ones he's had in Maine. I had the hamburger and it was delicious along with the pasta salad. The lady working there was so... More

I was drawn in by the giant lobster and it turned out this was a cool place to pick up souvenirs for the family and grab a lobster roll

Nice shops of local artists displaying their artwork and craft items as well as the usual commercial tourist items. Large selection of items from which to choose. We hit a day when there was a half off sale on some clothing items. Mostly high impulse items that you do not plan to buy. We also ate lunch there. Small outdoor... More

We always get a souvenir for each vacation we take geared toward something we did while there. We found the perfect piece at the Rain Barrel! A hand painted piece of the quarried rock was just the thing! Be sure to leave plenty of time to view all the different shops! There is a lot to see!
