Blue Mangrove Gallery is located on Marco Island, the southernmost point on the West Coast of Florida. The owner, Christie Marcoplos had resisted returning to the gloriously intense world of owning her own business. Yet, her entrepreneurial spirit could not be squelched especially in such a tropical island paradise bordering the precious Everglades. Therefore, in December of of 2006, Blue Mangrove Gallery was born.
After owning a florist gift shop in New England for almost 18 years, she fled to the land of sunshine and calm turquoise waters of the Gulf. Her last thought was to reopen another small business. However, Blue Mangrove Gallery became a delightful journey and has grown into a known destination shopping experience as well as a favorite stop for new and returning vacationers.
The Gallery is always brimming with colorful, fun and inspirational art and fine handcrafts.There is a something for everyone, including loads of artistic jewelry. Blue Mangrove entered the exciting world of beads with the exquisite Trollbeads line, then expanded with an exclusive collection of Florida designed and created Marco Island Beads. Christie was ecstatic to find DUNE JEWELRY! It was an absolute perfect fit, especially with the white shell sand from Marco Island.
The Dune Sandbeads were introduced late in the 2012-2013 winter season and quickly became a top seller. The Dune earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces became an instant success as well, but the sweet Sand beads just sell themselves!
Companies like Dune Jewelry are what the Blue Mangrove looks for. Unique, professional, ethically minded in the business world, and not to mention high quality and well-designed.
Marco Island has an abundance of restaurants, a long white sandy beach offering many water sports & Eco tours into the 10,000 Islands but one must be sure to experience the Everglades, walk some of the trails, spot alligators, manatee, dolphin, roseate spoonbills & more. There is a subtle unspoken beauty not to be missed.
Visit Blue Mangrove Gallery the next time you are visiting Marco Island or Naples! Christie and her staff will be sure to welcome you into their eclectic gallery and help you find something truly unique for yourself or loved ones.
