restaurants all across the Island, the
humble spice shop recently added a
large patio area adjacent to the building.
Complete with a concert stage and
seating around a combination of grass
and paved concrete slab, the space has
only hosted a handful of events thus far,
yet has already become a recognizable
and crucial element to the growth of
downtown’s west side.
Inside, the store is busy gearing up for
the upcoming holidays with all of their
seasonal favorites such as Torrones,
Panfortes, Pannetones, Jordan Almonds,
gift basket sets, and holiday teas. Fall will
also bring Friday evening dinner service,
with Charcuterie and wine specials and
a happy hour menu from 4pm-6pm,
followed by the regular menu and select
evening specials.
Maceo’s will also be hosting a muffaletta
eating contest at Galveston Island
Brewing’s Oktoberfest on October 21. The
fastest muffaletta eater will win prizes
from both Maceo’s and the brewery.

Open seven days a week 10am-7pm
The magical simplicity of flying a kite is
like nothing else, and the wonderment
that comes from releasing the colorful
fabrics to the whimsies of the wind
is enough to float away troubles or
simply make a typical trip to the beach
something special to remember. Kites
Unlimited, Galveston’s exclusive shop for
all things kite related, is a never-ending
wonderland decorated in the entire
spectrum of the rainbow with hundreds
of items waiting to sail the skies.
In addition to kites of all sizes, Kites
Unlimited is the place to find almost
anything that is fly-able, including flags,
banners, and windsocks that can add a
billowing splash of color to any outdoor
space, walking path, lawn, or patio.
And just in for fall is an assortment of
Halloween-themed flyers—add a ghost
flag or a pumpkin windsock to add levels
to your outdoor decorations, or use them
to make a location visible to party guests
and trick-or-treaters.

A long-held Galveston secret, Maceo
Spice & Imports has verifiably boomed
in the past couple of years since Ronnie’s
daughter, Concetta Maceo became
involved in the business. Already known
for the boldly authentic flavor profiles in
the family recipes used for their wildly
popular lunch offerings, as well as for
being the low-key special ingredient in
Nautical Antiques
& Tropical Treasures
2202 Mechanic Street | 409.539.5469
Monday, Thursday-Saturday 10am-6pm; Sunday
11am-4pm; closed Tuesday & Wednesday
This truly one-of-a-kind store holds
treasures just waiting to be discovered,
and fortunately the hard part—the
search and salvage—has already been
accomplished. Adrienne and Michael
Culpepper have assembled an awe-
inspiring collection of authentic nautical
salvage, most of which was found by
mining foreign shipyards during their
annual buying trip abroad, intermingled
with unique decorative pieces that follow
a distinctly seafaring theme.
The collection is comprised of the
smallest of nautical details, as well as
enormous focal points plucked straight
from commercial vessels, and everything
in between.
Just last month, the store received a
large shipment of hand-carved, custom-
made figureheads, tropical décor, and
reclaimed boat-wood furniture. October
will bring one more shipment of true ship
salvage before the couple closes for the
month of November for their buying trip.
This year the Culpeppers will visit ship
breaking yards in Turkey and India, after
which they will travel to Indonesia in
search of more tropical décor and then
return in time for the December shopping
season.
