The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, located at 900 Loggerhead Rd. in Kure Beach towards Fort Fisher offers a gift shop with a large variety of gifts and accessories for people of all ages.
Not only is the Federal Point History Center your one stop for all the areas history it’s also a great place to shop! Whether you are looking for t-shirts, mugs or books on our areas history they have you covered. Last month we featured the new Ocean Plaza t-shirts, which are selling well. This month we’ve added a new line of vintage postcards, note cards and magnets. We’ve found a company in California that reprints postcards from the 1920’s to the 1940’s. Luckily they already had a number of images of Carolina Beach in their catalog and we are now carrying them in the gift shop. If these go well we may have others made from the postcards we have in our collection.
For a fundraiser make a $75.00 donation to the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society and you will receive a Free Gift Certificate from John Gregory Photography good for a free Family Portrait Session on location or at your home in New Hanover County and a free 10 x 13 portrait from the image of your choice. Your selected portrait image will be custom cropped, color enhanced, and digitally retouched to make your portrait the best it can be! The retail value of your photo session and 10 x13 portrait is $185.00. Limit one free portrait per family, please make your appointment before June 1, 2011. For details call (910)458-5590 or visit JohnGregoryPhotography .com. In addition, they still have plenty of copies of Daniel Norris’s two coffee table books: Carolina Beach: Images and Icons of a Bygone era (vol. 1) and Carolina Beach: Friends and Neighbors Remembered (vol. 2) on sale. They normally list at $29.95 but we have them marked at $22.50. With sales tax down to 7% it’s a great time to stock up now for copies to give family and friends.
