This general store offers souvenirs and a look back at Ocracoke years ago, even the soda selection is glass bottled. A neighborhood gem and a cool stop on your way to the lighthouse.

Although the things sold at this store are like most tourist junk. The owners were extremely nice and were very friendly. The shirts were funny and original. 10/10 would recommend just stopping in here for a quick visit!
