While the town of Calabash, North Carolina is often associated with luscious fried seafood, this little fishing village, located just north of the state line, is also home to a gift shop with a reputation of its own. Callahans of Calabash has occupied the same prominent corner since 1978 and draws shoppers from far and wide. One visit and you’ll see why!
The term “shop” is actually way too small to describe the sprawling 35,000-square-foot establishment of Callahans of Calabash. Occupying the major part of a block, it features aisle after aisle of gifts and souvenirs, confections, collectibles and an amazing selection of Christmas ornaments and decorations.
