Located in historic downtown Wilmington, just minutes from the Battleship North Carolina and walking distance from downtown hotels, it’s a shopping experience like no other.
With storefronts reminiscent of a 19th century Southern city street, you’ll discover the best in dining, apparel, jewelry, home goods, fine arts, handcrafted items, toys, souvenirs and more! You’re sure to find a treasure at any one of our 20+ locally owned shops and boutiques. After some retail therapy, you’re only steps away from a relaxing stroll on the Riverwalk.
