Pamlico Station: Your Hatteras Island Happy Place

By Beth P. Storie | Wednesday, June 30, 2021

You know, some places of business just have that certain vibe that makes you feel good. It’s not one specific thing; it’s the look, the happy feeling you get from the people there, the smells wafting on the air. That’s what you get at Pamlico Station, and the owners of the shops are coming bringing a collective energy that’s fun and inescapably inviting. Here’s a collection of shops that, while different, all share a theme of showering you with good stuff. For example: tie-dye classes, tunes from new and used vinyl, a studio full of fantastic art, massage and acupuncture sessions, art and music lessons, a shop filled with varying flavors and fragrances of popcorn, live music under the deck (with the shops open, chair massages, make your own tie dye, popcorn samples and more!) – now, doesn’t that all make you want to stop by?

Angel Fritz Art Gallery

Art from the heart! Angel’s work is, as she puts it, a celebration of sand and sea, intuitive layers illuminated by vibrant hues, geometric shapes inviting focus and presence and iridescent abstracts expressing her joy. It will make you feel joyful too. Come by to soak in the beauty and ease.

Hi Dyenamix Color & Sound

Walk into a wondrous explosion of color and music! It’s a sensory bath of tie-dye clothing, new and used vinyl, accessories for instruments, local art and always great music on the speakers. You can even take classes to learn the tie-dying technique! And there’s live music on Thursdays! Get your groove on!

Island Acupuncture & Massage Therapy

Sure, you probably have experienced how great massage can make you feel, but what about acupuncture? You’ll never know how it can help until you give it a go! And, may we suggest a massage at the beginning of your vacation to unwind and ease into your time off? Love yourself healthy and happy with sessions at our tranquil studio.

Sweet & Salty Popcorn and Shaved Ice

This ain’t your Granny’s popcorn. Try out Sea Salt Caramel, Tri-Village Triple Chocolate, Mermaid’s Munch, Pirate’s Plunder and close to 20 other flavors – all small-batch, all artisan. The wafting smells will lure you in from 40 paces! After the popcorn, try out one of their Snow by the Sea shaved ice treats, paint a sand dollar and build a gift basket to take home!
