About Us

The story of how one of Punta Gorda's oldest and most unique novelties shops came about is quite an experience by simply reading it. Tony and Patty Lorini, the owners of The Sand Pebble, were living on a 72" sailboat. The sea team said good-bye to all of their belongings, clung to whatever small items they could grab and took off on a rubber lifeboat. (half inflated). After paddling to the closest island, they were relieved to discover it was inhibited and they would be able to be rescued! Unfortunately, the only communication this island had with the main land was a mail boat that came once a month and  had room for one passenger only.
