We will reassess our hours frequently as we navigate these unprecedented times. Our top priority in the shop is the safety of our team and our guests. Stay in the loop about all of our gallery happenings by getting Art in Your In Box.
Our eStore launch last month was a huge success, thanks to you – our wonderful customers, friends, and family. It helped tremendously while our gallery was closed and we are grateful for your business.
Please enjoy browsing our website and eStore and come back frequently. We add new art, gifts, books, and fun activities every week. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get some daily color, inspiration, and HAPPY in your life.
We pray that you and your family stay well, with all the love that’s in our hearts ~ Christi & Debbie

They’ve created a beautiful, colorful space with you in mind. You’ll feel uplifted as you discover inspirational gifts and art displayed from floor to ceiling. They’re honored to represent many local and regional award-winning artists who partner exclusively with them to showcase and sell their special creations.
The Blue Giraffe makes beach time extra fun with a whole spectrum of art classes. Whether you’re a kid or kid at heart, your creativity can shine in our happy space. Vacationers with little ones return annually to make fun memories and upcycled art on our front lawn. Adults and kids learn how to paint, write and create glass art in the gallery’s creative space. Come “paint outside the lines” with us.
Their story is not complete without introducing you to Jeanie, the gallery’s original blue giraffe. She stands tall and proud outside our front door to welcome you. Named in honor of Debbie’s mother and Christi’s beloved Grandma, Jeanie is very photogenic. She loves being in selfies and the center of attention in a group portrait (she’s never been shy about those legs!). She’ll be your friend forever when you let us add your snap to her gallery. Did you know a giraffe’s heart is two feet long and weighs 25 pounds? Everyone on the Giraffe Team imagines their hearts to be that big. They use their heart power to spread happiness on 30A and beyond supporting organizations that help people and animals in need of love.
THE BLUE GIRAFFE BELIEVES…
In the goodness of people
Hugs and smiles are the best medicine
A good book opens up entire worlds to those who read
Family means everything
Kindness and respect should be given to all beings-furry ones, too
Being creative is good for the soul
In looking at the sunny side of things
Friendships are a true blessing
Voltaire nailed it when he said, “Writing is the painting of the voice.”
It is good to color outside the lines
Listening is more important than talking
The beach imparts peace and joy
God can be seen in Nature
Love can heal all things.
