Well ladies and gentleman, we are less than two weeks away from the BIG Gasparilla Pirate Invasion of Tampa Bay. And if you are anything like us, you probably have a whole bin of Gasparilla inspired clothing, decorations and piles upon piles of well-deserved beads from years past. With the parade only coming around once a year, recycling a previously-worn outfit just isn’t an option because we all know social media has a really good memory and will incriminate you if duplicated. And seeing as most of us wait until the last minute to snag our Gaspy swag, I thought it only appropriate to compile a list of Tampa’s go-to Gasparilla headquarters. Ranging from coozies and tees all the way to ladies clutches and door wreathes, these top spots will keep you covered for ALL THINGS GASPARILLA!

Disclaimer: In honor of Gasparilla, I totally pirated these pics from Instagram and Facebook! ENJOY!

1. The Poppy Boutique: Located in Hyde Park Village and FULL of great last minute items.

2. A. Haley Boutique: Women’s clothing store located on Westshore Blvd. They have jewelry, clothing, and MORE!


3. Ki Designs: Custom design items including mugs, wreathes, and SO MUCH MORE! Previously located on Macdill near W. Swann Ave, but now you can shop online and at her ETSY shop!

4. JC’s Boutique: Open 11:00am to 6:00pm tomorrow and located on S. Dale Mabry.

5. Juxtapose: Another great Hyde Park Village shop. Allison stopped in the other day and loved their stuff!

6. Keys Country: Great pieces and large selection of pirate gear. They are also offering a FREE Gasparilla coozie when you spend more than $75. So grab some friends and head on over!


7. A Southern Twist: A local jeweler from Plant City who is JUST starting her own line of bangles and other pieces. Get them NOW while they are still available!

8. Cigar City Clothing Co: Something for the guys. This shirt is an EXCLUSIVE new add on to their line JUST IN TIME for Gasparilla! We love Cigar City Clothing Co!
