Reports of Nautical Antiques and Decor’s Demise Greatly Exaggerated

Put it up there with “Dewey Defeats Truman” and, we dunno, some other famous mistake in journalism.

Last month we bemoaned the passing of Galveston’s Nautical Antiques and Decor, arrrrgh-uably the best place in Southeast Texas for all your porthole and compass needs.

But co-owner Adrienne Culpepper recently informed us via email that the place “has been hit by Ike but she's not sunk!!!!” (Quadruple exclamation points in the original.)

It’s good to know all those nautical supplies can handle a little saltwater. The storefront is still out of commission, but you can order all your engine order telegraphs in the meanwhile via piecesofship.com. (Yeah, we think the site’s url is kinda clever too.)
