This shop has a large quantity and better quality of different items. They have a lot of religious items, items made of sea shells, knick-knacks, wooden signs, etc
What to buy: This shop is more of a gift shop than island beachwear and toy store. Iron on decal shirts and wave boards are in other shops.
Beach Mania is only one of numerous gift shops which can be found all up and down Padre Blvd. I couldn't resist taking a picture of this one because of the unusual message on it's signboard. Surely it couldn't have been inspired by any of the thousands of spring-breakers who were in town!
We bought a refrigerator magnet here, and also visited a couple of the other gift shops. All had very similar offerings of T-shirts, shells, sunglasses and surfboards.
What to buy: Junk and other necessities.
What to pay: Because there are so many gift shops the prices tend to be competitive.
They carry many different styles of kites, spinners, chimes ,etc. among other souvenirs, many unusual items.
