The gallery has earned a reputation for representing artists whose work is coastal, colorful and cheerful.  In fact, The Blue Giraffe was voted among the top five "Hot Spots for Art Lovers" on By carrying a wide selection of artwork, hand-crafted jewelry, accessories, and autographed books, the Blue Giraffe has also become a top stop on 30A for finding that one-of-a-kind, meaningful gift.

The Blue Giraffe represents artisans, ranging from "Destin Festival of the Arts" poster winner Mary Hong to local talent Aaron Sutton to the Moore Family's Folk Art to Tricia Robinson of the famed "Dear Bike" series. Local designer, Constance Snellgrove, proudly displays her “Sassy Jewels,” and beautiful bowls by local potter, Juliene Watson, show the mix of talent and mediums. At the back of the store, “A Sea of Books” features diverse titles, ranging from New York Times best sellers and beach reads to spiritual books and cookbooks to award-winning children’s books and books by local authors.

Conveniently located by Chan's Wine World in WaterColor Town Center, the celebration is an appropriate start to South Walton's festival-filled weekend, which includes Taste of the Beach and WaterColor's MountainFilm on Tour. For more information and event details, visit or call 850-231-5112.
