We have been a respected and trusted retailer for years. We are currently located in Mooresville, North Carolina. Laraine's was opened by Laraine in Fishermen's Village Punta Gorda, Fl in fall 1982. Laraine's Swimwear and Resortwear won many awards for being the best swim/resort shop in Charlotte County and Southwest Florida. All of our merchandise is new and purchased directly from the manufacturers. Laraine still owns and runs Laraine's along with a handful of trusted employees. She started a small website in the late 90's selling gifts online and on Ebay. In 2000 she opened this website and it has grown and now carries thousands of items online. In 2006 we closed our store in Punta Gorda and moved the warehouse to North Carolina. Previously Laraine also owned a plus size store and shoe store in Fishermen's village and a gift shop in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. She also ran Rainy's advertising and did TV and radio commercials for her businesses and others.
