With 150 miles of pristine coastline, and some of the East Coast's largest swaths of undisturbed maritime forest, the Outer Banks is a popular destination for nature lovers. As an important spot on America's "Flyway," which is the route that migrating birds take on their northern and southern treks across the country, the Outer Banks is the temporary home to hundreds of species of birds. Combine this with the number of deer, foxes, waterfowl, fish, turtles, and even alligators, and it's clear that the Outer Banks is truly a wild vacation destination.
Once a small card shop at the Outer Banks Mall, in 2012 Hallmark moved two stores to the south and more than tripled in size. Now 3,400-square feet, the store offers a lot more than greeting cards. Of course, there’s a large selection of cards, Hallmark’s calling card, so to speak. In fact, the selection of the high quality cards this company is known for is better than ever. But there are also gift books and kids’ story books, toys, puzzles --- including one that features our own Jockey’s Ridge --- wrapping paper and bows, picture frames, decorative plaques, candles and stationary. Outer Banks memorabilia and calendars can also be found here. If you’re looking for baby or wedding gifts, you’ll find lots to choose from at this store. Personalized imprinting and invitations are also available to order.
