In a cool historic building in downtown Manteo, The Island Shop is full of gems. Half of the shop features stylish and comfortable women's clothes, including sweaters, leggings, tunics, dresses and tops in soft, dreamy fabrics. Add to that accessories and jewelry and you've got a one-stop dress shop. Sea glass jewelry is a big seller here, and the local artist who makes it frequently can be found working on site. The other half of the store focuses on lovely gift items and home decor. You'll love the ceramics, pillows, throws and cat- and dog-themed items. The staff is particularly friendly here too. Be sure to say hello to Bubba Darlin, the resident Norwich terrier.
