Fun Finds in Morehead City, NC

I just spent some time in Eastern North Carolina and my trip to Morehead City produced some fun finds to share here!  Evans Street had a lot of action along the water, with cute shops, good restaurants, and beautiful water views.

My first stop was Arts & Things–an art studio and an art supply store.  Since I am physically incapable of entering an art store and not taking something home, I picked up some watercolors and a few Copic markers (I have admitted my addiction to art supplies and pens here on Save Snail Mail before!).

My next stop was Olde Towne Theatre Antiques.  I always check out the post card selection in antique shops and I picked up this unused one from Perugia, Italy:

…and this awesome envelope mailed in 1958 (sans postage stamp):

I just love the woman’s sexy colonial outfit!

At Dee Gee’s Gifts & Books, they had, appropriately, both books and gifts.  But a sign at the top of the stairs pointed to my favorite section….stationery!  Given that stationery was not their only offering, they did have a nice wall of notecards. Here’s half the wall:

From the wall, I bought some bunny notes I’ll share in another post. For now, I leave you with pictures from another art gallery featuring blue marlin and aquatic art.  They had a few snail mail-themed gems:

And the studio received mail in this:

Snail mail fun can be had in the unlikliest of places!

  1. I have a long history with Dee Gee’s! For as long as I can remember, during our extended family trip to the beach, my grandmother would take the entire family there and allow us each to pick out a book that she then paid for. It makes up a wonderful collection of memories and was a good way to make sure the grandkids were reading even on vacation to boot!
