Carolina Beach on Pleasure Island is the perfect place to look for hidden treasures and Thrift Shopping is a sport.
The Island Cottage is a Non-Profit store and has been supported by the local Community for more than 7 years.
Managed by Laurie Taylor, a native to area and a wealth of local information. Laurie has lived on the Island her entire life and remembers Hurricane Hazel.
Say Hello to Miss Laurie and tell her what you are looking for and you will be treated to some authentic Southern Hospitality and the best bargains on the Island, a true Locals shopping secret.
You will find the lowest prices here and if you are a thrifty shopper like me, you will be surprised by quality, selection and pricing, so pick up some great clothes for your kids and yourself, a book for the beach and maybe a treasure for your home.
