On our trip to Sanibel, we bought most perishables at Publix in Fort Myers. We had to replenish before the week was out, so we went to Bailey's. Nice store, has what you need, but quite a bit more expensive than a chain grocery store....More

We took our young girls in here on a mission for Souvenirs, and boy did we succeed! They found more than we needed and I got a wall canvas as well. The staff was super friendly and fun to shop with.
