Family Owned And Operated

We are a family-owned and operated business that really strives to give the best possible experience to every customer from the very second they reach us through phone, chat service, email, or simply walking through the front door. Our entire team from top to bottom takes great pride in our customer service skills and tries to go above and beyond for each of our amazing guests!

Be sure to check out our gift shop & take a piece of Crystal River home with you!

We sell merchandise from candles to signs, furniture to sunglasses, and everything coastal in-between! We specialize in items that are handmade, refurbished or up-cycled, and have custom designs that you cannot get anywhere else. Much of our inventory is handmade in the U.S.A. and is as unique as the manatee itself.
