Myrtle Beach Hot Spots

Callahan's of Calabash

While the town of Calabash, NC, is often associated with luscious fried seafood, the little fishing village, located just north of the state line, is also home to a gift shop with a reputation of its own. Callahan’s of Calabash has occupied the same prominent corner since 1978 and draws shoppers from far and wide. One visit and you’ll see why!

The term “shop” is actually way too small to describe the sprawling 35,000-square-foot establishment, owned and operated by Clark Callahan and nephew Dean Spatholt. Occupying the major part of a block, it features aisle after aisle of gifts and souvenirs, confections, collectibles and an amazing selection of Christmas ornaments and decorations.

If it’s nautical or shore décor you’re looking for, you’ll surely find it here. There are portrayals of sea captains and sea life, corks and nets, shells and sculpture, and intricate boats, both in and out of bottles. Like lighthouses? Choose from replicas, photos, maps, books and more, depicting lighthouses from up and down the coast.
Want to remember your Grand Strand vacation with a tee shirt? You’ll find a wide assortment, including Simply Southern, Southern Marsh, Salt Life, and Life is Good®, in every size and color, along with caps and tote bags.
Don’t pass by the fudge counter! You’ll want to indulge yourself in one or more of Callahan’s delicious, creamy creations.

Those who love decorating for Christmas will be as happy as kids on the big morning when they reach the St. Nick Nacks area of the store. Beginning years ago with a single tree hung with sand dollars, the Christmas shop has grown to include 150 decorated trees in dozens of styles and colors, from traditional decked in red and green to the currently popular tinsel trees in a number of bright hues. Look closely and you’ll even spot an upside-down tree! Among the more than three million shimmering, shining, and colorful ornaments are a wonderful selection of Christopher Radko, Dept. 56, Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments, and Mark Roberts Fairies. Also popular are the exquisitely detailed Jim Shore figurines. It’s a Christmas shopping experience unlike any other on the Strand!

Additionally, St. Nick Nacks has Easter decorations and a room dedicated to Halloween, the second most popular decorating holiday.

Can’t find exactly what you’re looking for? Just ask. Customer service at Callahan’s is superior. Many employees have been here for more than 15 years, and it shows! Be sure to visit Callahan’s brand new Jewelry Boutique, featuring great lines such as Trollbeads, Waxing Poetic, Spartina, and Kameleon, not to mention an extensive collection of all things Vera Bradley.

Callahan’s is open year-round, seven days a week. Call 910-579-2611 or 800-344-3816, or visit their website for more information.
