Skipjack Nautical Wares And Marine Gallery
Museum & Art Gallery in Portsmouth, VA
On Thursday, December 20, 2007, our building including showroom and our 2nd floor residence, was destroyed following a fire at an adjacent church and subsequent building explosion. The web store was temporarily closed as a result of the disaster and due to the loss of inventory. We're glad to say that on October 16, 2008 we reopened Skipjack Nautical Wares & Marine Gallery in the Historic Seaboard Railway building situated at One High street with our front doors facing the Elizabeth River(next to High Street Landing and just a several steps from the Hog Island Lighthouse Fresnel lens)
