Our Story


Greetings from your favorite island shopping adventure Funky Flamingo Gift Shop-Specialty Shop

 

We discovered our small beach town and it changed our life. We learned to slow down, relax, and take the time to feel the tropical ocean breeze. One day, we were heading to the beach and we discovered a vacant retail storefront. That day changed our professional paths into a new direction. We want to share this little piece of paradise with you. It all began in 2011 and our business has evolved into a gift shop and fine art gallery that offers “Gifts with a Purpose.”

We know gift-giving is so important because it provides a self-fulfilling experience that lasts for a long time. Making someone feel special is more than enough reason to make you give more. We do not want to forget you, because you are special too. We want you to take care of yourself and make sure we have the perfect gift for you.

What does “Gifts with a Purpose” mean?

  1. Cause - You have the power to improve the lives of others.

  2. Show Gratitude – Show your friends and family that you are thankful.

  3. Special Occasion Special days deserve a gift to remember this moment in time.

  4. Memories – Bring home memories to remember this special time in your life.

  5. Just Because – Surprise your friends, family, or yourself with a gift for no reason.

Our website has products produced in-house as well as talented local artists and companies that believe in our philosophy. By buying their creations, you support them and their causes.

This year, we have added some new products for you to choose from because we know how important gift-giving is for you. We are proudly printing and creating a selection of new gift items. Due to Mike's extensive knowledge in the printing process and having access to all of his amazing photographs, we have added a photographic gift line to include jar openers, coasters, phone car caddy, puzzles, tumblers, jewelry and a lot more to come. Also, we have purchased commercial rights from amazing artists to add to this collection.

Show your love by giving the best gift ever!

Adele and Mike Ring
