The Museum Store has operated successfully for over forty years and is packed full of merchandise inspired by the Chesapeake Bay. There are toys and activities for kids that are both fun and educational. These include items like puppets, model boat kits, cute clothing including t-shirts and caps, loads of books, and plenty of stocking stuffers!
For the adults, the Museum Store has a unique collection of clothing and caps, crab-etched wine glasses, hundreds of regional books, unique holiday cards, custom mugs, Black Point chocolates, art tiles and coasters, hand painted bowls, jeweled mermaid glasses, framed prints by Harry Richardson, and Carvel Hall crab knives. The elegant jewelry collection includes pieces for everyday and special occasions. Holiday crab mats and the custom chart shower curtain are also very popular items. The Store has lots of great hostess gift ideas, such as towels, beautiful soap, ornaments galore, specialty teas, Blue Crab Bay Co. gourmet snacks, and gifts with a little bit of sparkle for the ladies.
“We love that first time visitors express how beautiful the store is and how they can’t wait to come back and shop for the holidays - come see for yourself! Not only are you supporting the local movement when you make a purchase, but you’re also supporting the programs and activities at the museum,” says Maureen Baughman, Director of Retail Operations at the Calvert Marine Museum.
