A Unique Shopping Experience on Anna Maria Island

    By Jeanette Scott

    Making a trip to Anna Maria Island? You don't want to miss visiting the City Pier Restaurant and Gift Shop! Located at the end of the City Pier, it has been in operation since 1995 and provides a great place to hang out, relax and have a meal. My favorite part though – be sure to check out Pier Gear which is owned and operated by Bill, a local wire jewelry artist. Bring him your own rock, fossil, shark tooth, etc., and he would be happy to make it into jewelry for you! A great way to take home a momento from your trip and that you can wear for many years to come. To see examples of Bill's work and his updated schedule each week, check out the website here. The address and a map are below. Happy shopping!
