The spirit of “Endless Summer in Paradise” is reflected in an exciting new enterprise on the lush grounds at Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas.
Welcome to the all new Eighty-Five & Sunny Gift Shop. What a terrific addition to the unique Northside vacation complex! Adding to the positive vibes, the clever name is a bow to the island’s year-round daily forecast for fun.
Owned and operated by Brian Cox, the shop sits adjacent to his on-premise restaurant, RooT 42 Bar & Grill. He also runs One Pub in Red Hook.
The gift shop is a departure from his other ventures — one Brian recognized as an important addition to the scene at Flamboyan Resort where guests have access to two beautifully appointed pools and Magens Beach is just a half mile down the road.
Now, shoppers have the opportunity to check out displays of colorful beach toys, inflatables for kids, original design T-shirts, tank tops and beach bags, wide-brimmed hats — plus lots more fun-in-the-sun items.
At the Eighty-Five & Sunny checkout counter, convenience items including sunscreen and basic over the counter travelers’ needs are on display.
When it comes to clean, safe sun care for the skin, Eighty-Five & Sunny carries the Caribbean Sol line of sunscreens. According to Brian, the all-natural, reef-friendly products “… combine earth’s purist minerals to create all-natural, sustainable, biodegradable, environmentally, and people-safe sun and skin care formulas.”
Eighty-Five & Sunny also carries mementos of paradise ranging from Island Girl jewelry to coffee mugs, home goods, silicone glassware, local hot sauces, collectible ornaments, magnets, bottles openers, and lots more eye-catching options.
Tropical Pop Popsicles are available in the freezer, as well as frozen smoothies in luscious flavors. Let smoothies defrost naturally at the beach, on the boat, or anywhere you want to drink in frosty cold refreshment. All Tropical Pop products are made from locally grown fruits including mango, tamarind, passion fruit, guava, coconut, pomegranate, and more.
The rum cakes available at Eighty-Five & Sunny are great gifts with a tasty tie-in to the eatery next door. RooT 42 Bar & Grill offers premium quality cakes on their dessert menu. What a great way to check out your favorite flavors!
The accommodating staff at Eighty-Five & Sunny includes Day Manager Makia Petersen-Harris and Night Manager Jamie Walthall.
