Pearl Hunting

by Justin
(Youngstown, OH)

I used to go to Nags Head every year with my family and we stayed at MP 11. Many years ago when we were there I remember going to a place where you could pick your own oyster and open them to see if there was a pearl inside and then you could have it made into a ring or earrings, etc. Does anyone know if this place exists and if so where it is located?

You must be speaking about Awful Arthur's in Kill Devil Hills. They are very much still around. Here is their address and phone number:

Awful Arthur's Oyster Bar
MP6 Beach Road
Kill Devil Hills, NC

and a link to their website.

Kind regards,

You’re talking about the outer banks pearl factory and I don’t think it’s still there unfortunately. I used go to as a kid as well.
