A most unusual store and studio, Albury's Sail Shop, at the eastern end of Man-O-War Marina (tel. 242/365-6014), occupies a house overlooking the water. The floor space is devoted to the manufacture and display of brightly colored canvas garments and accessories. They're made using 8-ounce cotton duck fabric, which once served as sailcloth for the community's boats. When synthetic sails came into vogue, four generations of Albury women put the cloth and their talents to use. Don't stop in without chatting with them. It's open Monday through Saturday from 7am to 5pm.
