Sanibel Island Online Shopping Directory (after Hurricane Ian)

So many of us are heartbroken not only for the beautiful Sanibel and Captiva Islands that were devastated by Hurricane Ian, but the island shops and businesses that were affected as well. It will be many months or years for many of these shops to be able to reopen their brick-and-mortar shop to tourists.

We've been wondering how we can support these small family businesses to help them on their road to recovery. So I decided to compile this list of Sanibel Island shops and businesses who have online web sites that are currently open for shopping.

I am also including reputable places that are donating to hurricane relief efforts as well.

This directory is a work-in-progress, as I'll be adding shops as I find them. If you know of a Sanibel or Captiva Island shop that is open online, please let me know! We are stronger together! ❤️‍🩹

Sanibel Island Lighthouse 8x10" Art Print Set from Tower Gallery

In response to the heartache of so many people who have seen Sanibel changed because of Hurricane Ian, the Tower Gallery has created a gift set of Sanibel Lighthouse images. Six of the Tower artists have focused on the Sanibel Lighthouse and have created images that honor the history and role of this iconic structure. Each of 6 lighthouse images is printed on 64lb. soft white paper. The 8x10" prints will be packaged as sets, wrapped in special envelopes and bound with raffia with a shell from Sanibel beaches attached.

Rachel Pierce Art

Rachel Pierce, a talented artist who lives on Sanibel Island, lost her home, her gallery and her studio in Hurricane Ian. 

After the hurricane, she created a stunning painting of the beloved Sanibel Lighthouse that withstood the storm.  The mayor of Sanibel purchased the original, but you can get gorgeous prints!

Rachel also has beautiful jewelry created from her lighthouse artwork that you can see in the "Jewelry" section below.

On Island

on island sanibel love t-shirts

From On Island's Facebook page: "I have struggled to find the words to capture the time since Hurricane Ian. The loss, the homesickness, the heartache for how injured our beloved islands are. But also, the strength and support of our community - those who are here and those who live elsewhere. The overwhelming kindness of friends, family and strangers. The drive to rebuild. And then how do you express that on a tee shirt?! It actually became very simple: LOVE. It is the love we all feel for these islands that fuels their recovery and the optimism in our hearts that we will be back. Therefore, the LOVE shirt. This is a longtime favorite tee but has new, deeper meaning now, and it is available on-line at

The shop on Sanibel is closed and empty while the building is being repaired. All the old inventory has been given away, so we will start back slowly with a few on-line sales. I hope you'll be patient with us as we rebuild.

Of course, this is also a chariTEE shirt, so a portion of the proceeds will go to SCCF to help protect the wildlife and replant the lost vegetation."

Shalimar Cottages & Motel

From Shalimar: "In the wake of Hurricane Ian on September 28, 2022, Shalimar Cottages & Motel was one of the few properties on Sanibel Island to not only be damaged but wholly washed away. As wind and water turned every building at Shalimar into rubble, it also swept under the small paradise thousands of visitors enjoy every year. It is impossible to articulate how stunned and devastated we are by this sudden disaster. However, Sanibel is our home, and we have stood here since 1959. Countless memories have been shared here, relationships made, and friendships nourished. We want to remain the place where this happens. WE WILL REBUILD. 

We plan to re-create the old Florida-style cottages you know and love (just stronger and better!). These types of structures make Sanibel the charming, peaceful paradise that we hope it will remain. We are heartened by the strength and resoluteness of the rest of our community to revive and maintain the island's traditional identity. 

We are a small, family-owned business. It will be a tremendous endeavor for us to recreate our home. The proceeds from your purchases will be used for everything ranging from engineering & architectural services, construction, interior design, landscaping & pool, hotel & office supplies, and much more. We know it will be an adventure and take some time, but we can't wait to welcome our guests back. Please help us remain #shalimarstrong and #sanibelstrong. 

Thank you to all our Shalimar friends & neighbors,
Owners Nancy, Chet, Sean, & Manager Romas"

    I just put a huge dent in my Christmas shopping hitting all these links. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Island with my family from Upstate NY. Thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery.

    I first visited and stayed at Sanibel when I was around ten years old. It was primitive with mostly dirt roads which we weren’t allowed to walk down as there were alligators. I went with my best friend’s family. We went the next couple years and the shells I collected; I still have. I hadn’t been back until my sister took me there in 2003 and I wept when I got out of the car. It was still there, the beaches, the smells, the breezes and the sounds. A lot of changes but not bad, Ding Darling, Bailey’s, shell shops still there. I’m now 65 and I am heart sick about this horrible storm. As sad as what has happened, Sanibel will remain and for now has created a new landscape. I know I will be back. I brought my husband there in 2006, we had a blast. Soon the piles will be gone, new buildings will appear, and we shall see what the ocean has churned up. Sanibel was never about the money; it will always be about the beach and the gorgeous works of art created by God and tossed upon sand. I am so sorry for everyone’s losses.
