This shop makes their own candy and also sells ice cream. They advertise
"Our Fudge and Chocolates are made in the traditional way using all natural ingredients, cooked in a copper kettle and made on a marble slab."
What to buy: Pralines or fudge. I love their pralines. Bob also sometimes buys peanut brittle. They also have ice cream. I get an ice cream cone and take the pralines back to the boat and hoard them.
What to pay: Pralines
1/2 lb. Box - $5.00
1 lb. Box - $10.95
This is one of three shops that are all in a row owned by the Lannon family. They are Ship's Lantern, Corner-Copia and Sea Jade.
What to buy: Sea Jade has shells, souvieniers and jewelry. They advertise "best selection and prices of shells on the island! Paul Hawaii Island Walkers - WE SHIP!.
I have only looked into the store from the outside.
What to pay: I have not shopped here
I'm not sure if I've bought anything here or not. Apparently, Debra Aaron, co-owner of ZZ Toys in Fernandina Beach, sometimes does tricks with one of her yo-yos outside of her business.
What to buy: They sell kites and other beach toys.
Summer Store Hours: Mon - Sat 10:00 AM-9:00 PM and Sunday 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Winter Store Hours: Mon - Thurs 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM and Fri - Sat 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM, CLOSED SUNDAY.
Nautical gifts, sharks teeth, woodcarvings, tide clocks, ship models and lighthouses. There is a sign in the window advertising a Sale of assorted flags. They also have a a life-sized statue of "Copper" Jack Aury.
This place is in with Corner-Copia which sells Tshirts, fireworks, toys and souveniers, and with Sea Jade which I have listed separately.
What to buy: I took this picture because of the amusing sign. It says:
WE BUY JUNK &
The other sign says:
I don't know the name of this place, but I've looked it up in the on-line yellow pages, and the map it gives doesn't seem to be right, but Brett's Waterway Cafe isn't on the right place on that map either, so I'm taking a chance on it.
The Fernandina Seafood Market (which the sign in the photo is pointing to) is north of the marina, and this place is south of it.
What to pay: Bob went over there and got shrimp for $5.95/lb.
I've occasionally walked around in this shop, and we walk around it and look in the windows all the time. But the stuff in there is too expensive for me to actually buy anything, although they have a lot of nice things that I'd like to have, or get as gifts.
This place caught my eye as I walked by. I love those fossil shops, but this one is extra....fossily?
What to buy: Fossils, rocks and other really unique things
What to pay: depends on what you buy
Apparently this shop is something of a chain because there's another one in Charleston, Savannah, Hilton Head and other places.
What to buy: Everything for Christmas year round
