You'll feel like you're stepping into a tropical ocean when you walk in the door at Mermaids in downtown Manteo. It's bright, airy and awash in ocean blue. We sell coastal artwork for both your wall and your functional home: mouse pads, coasters, cutting boards, placemats, mugs and more! You can also browse our gift items such as jewelry for teens and adults, shea butter soaps, plush toys, tote bags, locally crafted pottery and wooden bowls, stickers of all kinds, baby onesies and toddler tees and beautiful-sounding seashell chimes. If you want to liven up your kitchen, we feature fun tea towels, butter dishes, cutting boards, spatulas and more. And one of our most popular offerings is another reminder of the ocean – sea shells! You can fill a bag with these treasures from the sea, collected by our resident Mermaid. We're an escape to the ocean without getting wet!
