With warm, beachy weather on the way, you might find yourself (and your wardrobe) needing a spring refresh. Thankfully, The Cotton Gin is ready and eager to meet all of your seasonal needs.

The Wright family, founders and owners of The Cotton Gin, has spent the last 60 years perfecting the coastal shopping atmosphere. 

Since their first store opened in Jarvisburg in the 1970s, the Wrights have expanded into Corolla, Nags Head and Duck, providing the whole beach with an authentic Outer Banks retail experience.

Visit any of their locations and treat yourself to some spring florals from Vera Bradley and a Pandora bracelet to match, or make Simply Southern and Vineyard Vines your warm-weather accouterment. The Cotton Gin also features a revolving stock of locally made products and accessories.

Dressed in your new warm-weather finery, enjoy a vineyard tour with a glass of wine in hand. Sanctuary Vineyards, producer of local, award-winning wines, calls The Cotton Gin’s Jarvisburg location home. And come April, this location also partners with Kitty Hawk Kites for soundside adventures. Take a boat tour or maybe even a hang gliding trip – either way, you can be sure a visit to The Cotton Gin will prepare you for the beach days soon to come!
