    Ben Franklin: Not to be confused with the craft shop

    by b1bob Updated Aug 19, 2006

    Ben Franklin

    Ben Franklin is a department store, not to be confused with a chain of crafts stores with that same name.

    What to buy: You can find beach supplies, t-shirts, souvenirs, all sorts of clothing, discounted fishing tackle. I used to collect Matchbox cars during the 1980s and I always found something unique here. My brother was more interested in beach balls and hermit crabs.

    Forbes Candies & Gifts: Forbes

    Forbes

    Forbes' 70-year-old recipes are still used to cook delicious fudge, mouth-watering pecan delights and many more tasty candies. They also carry a large selection of gifts, shell items, toys, and less tacky souvenirs. Both locations are "family fun" shops to visit.

    Seagate North: Seagate North

    Seagate North during a spot of rain

    Just north of our rented cottage (where we stayed in the early 1980s), there was this strip mall called Seagate North which primarily sold souvenirs and beachwear. It is full of a variety of locally owned shops. From formal wear to pet parking (at Cyber Dog USA: a holistic pet store- you know the Outer Banks have gone upmarket now!), DVD rentals, duck decoys, a consignment shop, cross stitch, and jewelry. Seagate North also has a great produce stand that features fresh, local produce. There is now a Southwestern restaurant called the Coastal Cactus, which I think replaced a good seafood restaurant.
