the selkie Shop

The Selkie is a North Carolina Creatives gift shop located in the heart of Historic Downtown Wilson. Just a short walk from the iconic Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park, the mission of The Selkie is to establish a unique and diverse shopping experience. By bringing together an unconventional community of North Carolina makers, The Selkie hopes to best represent the ingenuity of North Carolina artists, traditional craftspeople, and fiber artists. 

The Selkie's signature brand is Simply Adorned 79. Selkie owner, Amanda Duncan, is an artisan specializing in handmade leather jewelry and began her business in 2018. Duncan understands the beauty and importance of handmade products in everyday life and believes that these products should be accessible to everyone. Five featured products will be available for online purchase on a rotating basis.

Points of interest at The Selkie include a beautiful interactive Art-o-mat machine by artist Clark Whittington, a NC fine art gallery space (Westerly Gallery), and a monthly series called the Nautilus Performance Series. The Selkie also hosts artist demonstration events as well as vendor pop-ups. More information on these events can be found on the Upcoming Events page.
