The Turtle Factory, Sneads Ferry

Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
The Turtle Factory is located in Sneads Ferry, A small fishing village on the North Carolina Coast, just minutes away from miles of unspoiled and publicly accessible beaches on the barrier island, know as TOPSAIL ISLAND. Well known as the "Shrimp Capital of the East Coast" Sneads Ferry Celebrates this with the Shrimp Festival, held the second week in August every year. We offer a plethora of turtle memorabilia, trinkets, souvenirs, gifts, hand made art work from local artists, and many more ocean themed items as well.

To us, turtles represent so much more than just awesome reptiles. Taking their homes with them wherever they go, turtles remind us to remember our roots while still welcoming new places and phases in life. The turtle's slow gait requires the animal to have faith that it will eventually get where it is going. They teach us to appreciate life's true necessities: shelter, food, drink, and faith.
