There is plenty of fun to be had right on site with our newly upgraded Dress up as Anne parlour experience that will be sure to bring on laughter and a life-long memory of your time here on Prince Edward Island!
If you want to take this experience to your delegate you can arrange to have the Parlour brought to your event!

We have a lot more than just Anne. We offer a wide variety of quality souvenirs and gifts from suppliers all over the world.  We have a large selection of sea shells, fridge magnets, night lights and souvenir clothing. Many items in our gift shop are selected with convention delegates in mind. We ship world wide.

Book with us and your group will receive an on-board welcome upon their arrival and each will receive a free bag of potato chips!

Shop & Play is now in it’s 26th year of business on Prince Edward Island! The past quarter century has been a wonderful metamorphosis for Cavendish Figurines and they are pride themselves having adapted to the needs of their local and global visitors. 

Shop and Play of yesteryear looks very different than today but we are so excited to show you the variety of gifts and souvenirs you can find at our shop year-round. Join co-founders Jeannette Arsenault and Don Maxfield and their team as they continue to provide world class service to their beloved friends and patrons.

It really is worth the drive to Gateway Village in Borden-Carleton, PEI. We look forward to serving you!
