You can't miss the colorful storefront of this funky gift shop and gallery next to the Sunset Inn. Bright floats, island music and funny hand-painted signs lure you in. The whimsical store is packed full of tropical art from husband-and-wife team, Nadine and Glenn Lahti, as well as 20 other local artists. If you're looking for something that's not imported or mass-produced, this is the spot for you. Most of the works have frames that are hand-made in the Keys from lobster traps fished in the Keys. They can even custom make clever signs for every occasion. Their "Islamorada Fish Stories Told Here," sign is especially apropos. The helpful staff can help pick out the piece that is right for you, and during the week, you are likely to find the owners on site. Pieces range from small to large at very reasonable prices.
