Our family owned store has been located on St. Armands Circle, an island off the coast of Sarasota Florida, for over 20 years. Our island locale has made it possible for us to become well-acquainted with people who love the sea. Avid boaters, sailors, beach lovers and dreamy-eyed vacationers, visit us and share stories and fond memories of time well spent with family and friends on various bodies of water throughout the country. They marvel at the intricate details of the nautical wood maps that are depicting their favorite places from such a fascinating perspective. The places they know so well are suddenly brand new!
In 2015 and 2016, we opened our second and third stores in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, a neighborhood nestled along the coast of the Mississippi River. In New Orleans, we hear tales from shrimp boat captains, steamboats, river boats and cruise ship goers--yet another group of people who have a deep affinity for bodies of water. Once they see our wonderfully crafted 3-dimensional nautical maps--so accurately detailed and tastefully executed--they too are moved to share their own personal nautical-inspired stories.
Best Maps on the Market
Using the latest state of the art laser cutting technology and finest materials sourced from all over the world, our Stock Maps are simply the best on the market. The maps’ manufacturer often utilizes up to six different maps before creating the artistic rendition, ensuring accuracy and inclusion of important details. As impressive as they appear online, we’re often reminded by customers how they are even better in person. We know our customers like to see if specific locations are featured, so we made a point to showcase every location on most of the maps alongside beautiful and intricate details unique to each chart.
