Sadly, the village was closed by the time we got there. (FYI, lots of things close at 5 pm on the keys) We did however stop for the photo op with the lobster. Traveled with 3 older teens and my 70-year-old mom.

Fun funky place to stop for art or just to browse and get a pic with the lobster. You can't miss it! It's right on the main road.

I’ve stopped by here several times in recent years. It’s a fun place. You can find anything from typical tourist cheap stuff to an expensive piece of art. Definitely worth a stop. And didn’t forget to take your pic with the giant lobster.

The pictures are great and it was worth the short stop. We didn't go inside for the gallery, we were on our way to an activity, but there was loads of lawn ornaments bright and colorful outside. Not for the flying folks, but cute

You can't miss this place because of the 30' lobster in front. There are all kinds of things to buy and look at. A lot of local artist products and some that look like made in china though. Worth the stop to check it out

Wasn't terribly impressed with the shops and items. Touristy stuff. But the large lobster out front is a draw for pictures!

You can find everything here - from tacky souvenirs to one-of-a-kind works of art. Lots of great little shops, and you can grab a snack and have your photo taken with Betsy the Lobster out front, but the real gem for us was the immensely...More

We went past very early in the morning and the food vendors were not open. Hate we missed them. They had some really neat items. Also a must, take your picture out front.

So the giant metal lobster outfront draws you in, but once here there's so many local artists and unique crafted items. I ended up spending over $200, simply because I wanted to help the local community, and I had to have some of the items...More
