Our Story




Our humble little journey began with Carole’s Canvas Company. From this adventure she discovered two things: A refined taste in fashion canvas bags, and her love of the colors green and pink.

This laid the groundwork for the first Snappy Turtle outlet which opened in 1982 in Kennebunkport, Maine. We found that an awful lot of people were looking to dress and accessorize with flair, without sacrificing their elegance. Vibrancy meets proper. We call it “preppy with a twist.” Catchy, right?

In 1987 we opened a new location in Delray Beach and fell in love with the area over night (or should we say day?). Our collection has developed over time from ribbons by the yard and Mrs. Grossman’s stickers, to distinct lines such as Trina Turk, Milly, Tibi, and a plethora of other gorgeous accoutrement.

We provide year-round resort wear, including a large selection of Jack Rogers Sandals with amazing combinations that we carry exclusively.

Come stop by Snappy Turtle and our Outlet. Despite our name, we promise we don’t bite.
