Just before crossing the Cortez Bridge leading to the Gulf of Mexico, there’s a little shop that I drive past frequently.  I always said to myself ..

I must stop there! so finally yesterday I did.

If you love anything nautical you will walk through here in pure amazement! I cannot really describe it as just a shop,  they call themselves is a chandlery and I think it is a perfect fit!
What exactly is the official definition of a chandlery?

A chandlery was a store that sold nautical parts, gear, and other commodities to sea-bound vessels. The chandlery came into prominence in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when ships were the preferred method of transportation for the lucrative industries of cargo shipping, fishing, and whaling among other areas. The chandlery in its simplest form acted as a storeroom for hoarding supplies of wax and tallow candles, soaps, oils, paints, ropes, as well as other things that sea-bound sailors would need to aid them in their journeys.
Now take that and add nautical jewelry, art, garden decorations including buoys, mermaids , fishnets, nautical instruments and so much more….
Check it out for yourself!
