If you have been visiting Anna Maria Island for awhile now, then you are probably familiar with the Sand Dollar Gift Shop in Holmes Beach. The store has been there for decades and has continued to sell jewelry, clothes, home accents, and more. It is personally one of my favorite Island stores. However, recently the Sand Dollar was taken over by new owners. Well, maybe not “new”. It is actually now owned by the family that originally started the Sand Dollar back in 1960. Which is why it has been re-named to the “Original Sand Dollar”. Another great aspect to this store is that it is affordable and won’t break the bank! Seriously, they sell some of the cutest items and it is all reasonably priced (especially for the Island).
The Original Sand Dollar is across the street from Hurricane Hank’s on the end of the Island Shopping Center. Stop by and find out why locals and tourists love this shop so much.
