Welcome to Sharkheads, the Mississippi gulf coast's premier gift shop since 1973. Sharkheads carries the largest selection of "Biloxi Beach" merchandise on the coast. We also carry a wide variety of brands including: Hurley, Quiksilver, Sanuk, Oakley, Costa, Salt Life, and Reef. We have; beachwear, souvenirs, hermit crabs, toys, seasonal gifts as well as the largest selection of seashells available on the coast. We also have highly trained airbrush artists all year that can paint anything from a T-shirt to a baseball helmet. Please don't forget to try our famous homemade fudge and bring some home to the family.

Sharkheads began in 1977 as a closed up gas station. We opened under the name T-shirt City and remained that over the years as we expanded by buying the businesses around the store. In 2000 we purchased the adjacent office building and joined the two buildings, creating the largest gift shop on the Mississippi Gulf coast. We felt something was missing, so we then added a 32ft tall giant shark mouth entrance and changed the name to Sharkheads, Inc.

In 2005 Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast and Sharkheads was completely destroyed, fast forward to July of 2012 and we reopened our brand new shopping experience with the same pink store design and a new 32 ft. Shark entrance, perfect for photo opportunities.

Family owned and operated for over 40 years, come experience some of our famous southern hospitality in our spacious, brand new store.

Souvenir City
is only right down the road

Souvenir City

Souvenir City is located on Highway 90 between the Treasure Bay casino and Ocean Club condominiums. Souvenir City offers a lot of the same merchandise as Sharkheads, but with a smaller more boutique shopping experience. Souvenir City has an alligator theme, and a replica head is located on the front of the store for a nice picture opportunity.

Souvenir City has been on the coast for over 50 years and was acquired by the Pierotich family in 1983. A large alligator head was added and the store was known as Gators: Souvenir City. In 2005 the store was largely destroyed by hurricane Katrina, leaving just the shell of the building intact. In 2009 we reopened Souvenir City with a modern store and much bigger alligator.
