Your inner mermaid needs to find this beautiful coastal-themed art gallery and gift shop in Nags Head. One look at the stunning exterior and you'll want to discover the high-quality treasures inside. The art gallery focuses on local, regional and national artists with displays of photographs, sculptures, paintings, prints, ceramics and a lot of jewelry. The gift shop sells home decor, beach bags, t-shirts, gifts for children and various mermaid and sea-themed items. Everything is made in the USA, and Southern hospitality is alive and well here. You'll be greeted by Nutmeg, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, and her friendly owner, who will offer you a free lemonade and invite you to sit a spell in a porch rocker if you need a rest. Copper Mermaid is in Nags Head's Gallery Row, and they don't mind if you park your car here and walk to the other galleries, shops and restaurants in the area.
