Shopping for the Holidays on the OBX

Time to share, again, some of my favorite places on the Outer Banks to find some unique, wonderful, fantastic gifts for friends, family or yourself. We have so many talented artists and craftsmen here that you can find that one of a kind gift pretty easily. And many of our local shops and galleries are happy to ship your purchase too. Read More Did you know there is now an “Outer Banks Pillow”? Well, there is. It is hand embroidered and available from Urban Cottage, located in Duck, NC. Visit their website at to see the pillow and some other gifts and housewares they carry.
I added a photo of the pillow for your viewing pleasure.

Next on the list is Endless Possibilities in Manteo. This shop is a part of the Outer Banks Hotline, a Crisis Intervention and Prevention Center. Located at 105 Budleigh Street, this is a fun and quirky place to shop. Please visit their site at and remember that when you purchase anything you are helping the OBX community. We thank you!

Soaps, candles, note cards, jewelry…maybe some coffee beans? Maybe some pottery? Ta Da…Ocean Annie’s in Duck is one of my absolute favorite places. The owners are Harriet and Stuart, and both used to work at Village Realty. Pretty sure you will be able to find something for those special people on your list. They are located in the Scarborough Faire Shopping Center in Duck. Official address for those GPS’s is 1177 Duck Road, Duck, NC 27949.
Phone: 252-261-3290. Visit the website at Tell them the Village Realty People sent you.

You will find a plethora (I never get to use that word) of shops at Jockey’s Ridge Crossing in Nags Head. Make sure you don’t forget Fluffy, Fido or Petey and stop by Salty Paws Biscuits to pick up some homemade dog treats for your four legged family member. Kitty Hawk Kites and Kitty Hawk Surf Co are also located here. You can find toys, clothing and of course, kites!

That is all for today…more shopping tips next time. We appreciate your business and thanks for loving the OBX.

Until Next Time,
Your Outer Banks Blogger
