Spry Creek is owned by Outer Banks native Karen Scarborough Whitfield and her husband, John. They have converted her father’s old auto workshop garage into a surprising home accents and gifts shop. The bay doors and shop flooring were kept the same for charm. Be sure to look for Karen’s father’s work bench, which came out of Penny’s Hill Lifesaving Station. In the shop, emphasis is placed on unusual, handcrafted, quality wares.
Locally made jewelry, artwork, candles, soaps, photography and carved decoys. They offer domestic and imported linens, shawls, handcrafted ceramics and hand-woven throws made in the U.S.A. You will also find handcrafted goods from Spain, Poland, Portugal and Mexico, as well as, Polish art glass.
Spry Creek is named after a deep water creek just north of the shop where local fishermen used to keep their boats and a few local crabbers still do.
