Creating Key West Memories With Cyber Monday
We’re marching through another beautiful autumn season down here in Key West, and with Thanksgiving coming up, the winter holidays await just beyond. Millions of shoppers jump into this time of year with both feet, heading out with bellies full of turkey to score amazing deals when Black Friday has its midnight start. Even more shoppers take advantage of another annual sale a couple days later from the comfort of their laptops.
What Is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is a shopping holiday for a generation of iPhone using, laptop punching consumers. It dates back to 2005, when a team of National Retail Federation creatives named Scott Silverman and Ellen Davis developed it for a Shop.org sale. Since then, Cyber Monday has bloomed into an international celebration, spurring annual sales by Amazon, Best Buy, and most online retail brands.

Holiday Shopping in Key West
For those traveling in Key West during the holiday shopping season, there are a number of amazing locations to seek out unforgettable gifts. In addition to browsing endless pieces of beach apparel, you can also check out unique shells, locally-designed fashion and exceptional cigars. Here are some of our favorite spots.
Clinton Square Market
Located in a historic two-level structure that used to be a U.S. Navy coal depot in the 1800’s, Clinton Square Market is both an intriguing location and great shopping destination. Small, locally-run shops here sell a variety of island souvenirs including t-shirts, cigars, hand-crafted ceramics, and tropically-inspired beachwear.
Clinton Square Market. 291 Front St. Key West, FL
Head to one of the most popular and beautiful areas in Key West at Mallory Square and take some time to explore the countless gift options at Shell Warehouse. Located in a 19th century ice house, the store is home to the largest selection of shells in Key West, with a large number of rare seashells from around the world. You can also find upscale jewelry, artwork created by locals, and an array of colorful home decor when shopping here with your Cyber Monday savings.

More Popular Shops around Key West
This island is a fantastic place to do your holiday shopping, because we have such a wide variety of goods and stores. Peruse inventories of stellar stogies at Cigar City, Key Lime Pie-themed souvenirs at Kermit’s Key Lime Pie Shop, and some special spirits at Key West First Legal Rum Distillery on your next visit.
We are also huge fans of Mel Fisher’s Treasures, which is truly unlike any other gift shop you’ll find in the United States. Mel Fisher was a treasure hunter for 16 years of his life, and he’s accumulated a collection of gold, silver, and precious stones from the Spanish galleon Atocha, which he’s since turned into jewelry. If you’re looking to impress a loved one this holiday season, it’s pretty difficult to beat unearthed treasure.

Also, be sure to set aside some of those Cyber Monday savings to treat yourself to an enjoyable time during your stay at Parrot Key Hotel & Villas. If you’re in town on December 1st, be sure to attend the ‘I Love Stock Island’ Holiday Lighting Ceremony at Fishbusterz Seafood Market. The Key West Artisan Market: Local Holiday Shop will pop up on December 15th providing even more shopping opportunities, with some delightful local foods included.

After your Cyber Monday shopping is finished, consider giving back to an important cause like Reef Relief. Reef Relief is dedicated to improving and protecting the local coral reef ecosystem through a focus on rigorous science to educate the public and policymakers. We invite you to show your support for this organization on #GivingTuesday.
