Georgie's: Shoe Shopping
Georgie's is a shop my wife and her Mom did some damage in when off shopping. Georgie's is a small boutique carrying women's shoes, clothing and accesories. A bag in the store window brought my wife and my Mother in Law into the store. Five pairs of shoes later they emergered with bags in hand. My wife found a nice pair of black heeled sandals along with a pair of water shoes. My Mother in law found three pairs of sandals for herself.
What to pay: The two pairs of shoes my wife bought came to a total of $188; with her water shoes being on sale.
Alvin's Island: Souvenir Shopping
Alvins' Island is one of the big souvenir shops in Marco Island. They have every type of souvenir: toys, magnets, glasses, towels, tee shirts, sweat shirts; etc. The prices are very reasonable with most tee shirts being $12.99 and sweatshirts being 2 for $20. We bought a few tee shirts for ourselves here as well as some for the folks back home.
Beach Daisy: great boutique
I found a new shop on the Island called Beach Daisy. It was so refreshing to not be in a junky beach shop and a boutique that focuses on natural fibers and unique jewelry and clothing.
They understand customer service also. I accidentally bought the wrong size for my daughter and they shipped out the correct size to me asap.
I bought a line of clothing that I have never seen before that is perfect for traveling and makes me look 10 lbs lighter.
I was very impressed with the friendliness of the store and attention to detail. Can't wait to go back and shop again!
What to buy: unique lines and many made in USA. Great jewelry and shoes also. They have a leather sandal with detachable ornaments that are made with quality metal and crystals etc.
Also, had a great jewelry line called love heals. My daughter loved that line. Had handmade jewelry from a local artist with shells/gemstones/seaglass/ bone with silver.
So nice to see such quality items in a store.
What to pay: t shirts were $28. Jewelry was from $12-$700. They carry a variety of prices. Shoes were from $58-$120.
great sale rack!

Any: Naples= High End Stuff
I kept this generic because you can get absolutely anything in Naples. However, they do tend towards the higher end items and you should have absolutely no trouble finding them whilst there.
What to pay: High end is the order of the day in this town. If you have to ask, you probably can't afford it (don't feel bad- I couldn't either).
