Since 1946, this mom-and-pop store has sold knick-knacks, tchotchkes, trinkets and any other kitschy item under the Carolinian sun. With over 26,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space on seven levels, Gay Dolphin considers itself as the 'World's Largest Gift Store'. A small sampling of their shelves details things like shark's teeth, post-cards, T-shirts, sea sponges and other interesting products. Its location on Ocean Boulevard makes it almost an impossible shop to miss since it's in the middle of everything.

Location:  910 North Ocean Boulevard

Business hours:  Mo-Su 9:30 a.m.-11:00 p.m.
