Virtual Shopping at Quietwater Boardwalk

Yes, I know it has been renamed Portofino Boardwalk, but I simply can't bring myself to use the new name yet. What I will do is honor the request of some faithful, but faraway blog viewers and provide a semi-sorta virtual shopping tour of the Boardwalk.

There are some great shops open and just waiting for your arrival. Below is a preview of what you will find and hopefully it will whet your appetite for a shopping spree soon.


LEE TRACY's boutique is excellent and more upscale than what we've seen on the island in the past! While they have the prerequisite tee's available, they also carry a good variety of resort-casual clothing. After I got home, I was upset to realize I'd managed to get out of the store without a shot of their shoes! {{{gasp!}}} They have great selection of sandals, platforms, and wedges; dressy and casual.

And purses in every color (this is only a few available).

My photo does not come close to showing you the lovely selection of delicate earrings in this display.

New in the area, LEE TRACY started in the Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi area several years ago where they once had a boutique in Grand Casino, the biggest casino on the Gulf coast.

LEE TRACY has a nice selection for guys too! See, you can color-coordinate with your man!


Across the way, at GO FISH, you can always find something unique for that hard-to-buy-for friend! I love this quirky little guy. Is he a frog, a horny-toad, or some other mutant creature? And why do I find him fascinating? That alone is slightly disturbing.

GO FISH has a colorful selection of sundresses, hats, and other resort wear.

"I'll take the green one, please."


"Agnes, dear, you are simply rail thin."

I want this pair of pants at INTERNATIONAL BOUTIQUE!

By now I am getting quite impressed at the selection and quality of clothing in the shops on the Boardwalk. My eyes lit up as I noticed this "25% OFF" sign. (That little red post-it in the upper right corner.)

Oooohhhh...I like the red wrap!
