We’ll spare you the pirate puns, but arggh (just one) you ready for Gasparilla? Sometimes the prep is more fun than the party when it means stopping by your local Tampa boutiques for a look-see. 🏴‍☠️

Here’s a couple of our favorite Tampa spots to find serveware, tshirts, beads, and festive touches.

  • South Tampa’s hazel + dot (3714 Henderson Blvd, Tampa) has new Gasparilla finds coming in every day. Stop by for pirate scarves, Gasparilla canvases, multi-colored skull earrings, and pirate onesies and toys for the littlest mateys. Pro tip, follow the shop’s Instagram for merchandise drops. The new stuff goes quick.
  • Looking for subtle, Gaspy decor you can leave out after the party? Marketplace Interiors Tampa stocks bronze parrot pieces, pirate-embossed reusable towels, cocktail glasses adorned with gold-foil pirate ships, and pirate-themed trays perfect for adorning your nest. Follow the store’s Instagram for new offerings.
