The Pawleys Island Hammock Shops are located in Pawleys Island , SC, just a few miles south of Myrtle Beach. If you're looking for shops and restaurants unique to the area, leave the big malls behind and head south t Pawleys Island. Just one look, and these beautifully designed shops will draw you inside to discover unique and uncommon shopping.
A few years before we moved here in 1997, I was already the proud owner of a Pawleys Island Hammock in Roanoke, VA...a gift from my daughter. At that time I had no idea where Pawleys Island was located, so you can imagine my surprise upon discovering that the birthplace of my hammock was not far from our new home!
I have been told that the idea of the original hammock cam from Joshua John Ward, a riverboat captain who lived in the Low Country. He thought the lumpy, grass-filled mattresses on his boat were too hot for the coastal summers, so he set about designing a soft, cool bed that would serve his purpose. The result was a hammock so strong and comfortable that its handsome design has endured for more than a century.
I have no affiliation with the Hammock Shops, nor am I connected to any business located there. I just love the shopping experience and the atmosphere.
The hammocks are sold today at The Hammock Shops. You can view a demonstration of hammocks as they are being made.
