    Islander Trading Post: Quaint Antique Shop even Dudes would like

    This shop is quirky with a large range of item prices for the unpretentious shopper, someone interested in different things from the past. It has more vintage and country store and home goods than just decorative overpriced stuff you often find in antique shops. I found particularly interesting the vintage postcard collection they have (most about $1 or $2 each). It's definitely worth a stop and is just off the main road. They also have beer memorabilia.

    What to buy: A Vintage sign or postcard, or unique gift for someone back home. We got a reproduction vintage babe ruth chewing tobacco sign that was arty.

    She Sells Sea Shells: By the shore...

    Over loaded with Sea shells

    All about the shell, multiple locations, look for a bargain. (I thought the carved Calry's were cool, and $5.99). Take $$!!

    What to buy: F.Y.I.
    I bought the majority of my shells in Key Largo at Shell Man and saved a bundle!

    Sanibel does have some cool stores with traditional to funky odds and ends to island style furnishings. Things you don't find everywhere made by locals and individuals world wide.

    What to buy: Blown glass sculptures and vases are awesome along with crazy furniture which the novelity will probably wear off when you come down from your acid trip.

    What to pay: Much of the stuff is resonable but goes too ridiculious.

    Shopping: Bring Plenty of Moo-lah!

    luxurious by any means

    There are plenty of places to shop on the island! Most of the shops look more like fancy resorts than stores. ( I think they may shudder at the word "store.")

    What to pay: more than i can afford
