4/27/24-Blast from the past(PHOTO) (PHOTO). Just got these new photos of a piece that was shipped to Oceanside, California back in February of 2017. It was not this pretty to start with. Lots of elbow grease went into this one. Finding, cleaning, sanding, then sandblasting. Multiple bodies participated in getting it to where it is today, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

4/16/24-The genius of Mother-Nature(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO).  Plenty of homeowners have "that space" that the builder left that you scratch your head on what to put there.  Samantha & Melody in Vero Beach Florida knew what to put there(PHOTO).

12/8/23 Amazon.com has gotten into the driftwood business. None of us in the business are happy about this, but this is America and I am a capitalist, so they have the right to do so. That being said, I am not a very big fan as to the not so ethical way that Amazon sells driftwood. FYI: Amazon does not sell driftwood harvested from the waters of The Outer Banks of North Carolina. At Outer Banks Driftwood, we do. When you order a piece of driftwood from us, you get the piece in the photo(OBX DRIFTWOOD-PHOTO) that you ordered. You do not get a different piece that is supposedly similar as mentioned in the small print(AMAZON-PHOTO) (AMAZON-PHOTO), which is the case with Amazon. The listed piece of driftwood that you order from a photo on our site is exactly what you will get if you order from us. Driftwood is not lumber. Each piece is unique and different from every other piece of driftwood on planet earth. I wonder out loud how many folks there are that ordered a piece of driftwood from Amazon and ended up not getting what they thought they were ordering because they didn�t read the small print(AMAZON-PHOTO)? Personally, it smells like dirty pool to me. If I operated my business like Amazon, I could get hundreds of orders for the above 1st piece of driftwood. But, morally and ethically I could not do that. We will never do that as I would not want to deal with the backlash of disappointed customers due to misleading advertising. We value our reputation here at OBX Driftwood and will continue to run an honest business. The recent google presence of Amazon with driftwood has had a snuffing out effect to the Google presence of the small businesses that have been in the driftwood business for years. We really appreciate the small business support from all that have ordered from us in the past and those that will in the future. This is a David vs. Goliath battle. We ask for your support in helping us with the battle. Please share this with friends and family. Merry Christmas!

Speaking of helping out small business...  Pamella at Hanji Home in Asheville, North Carolina has created another masterpiece lamp(PHOTO) with one of our pieces of driftwood.  If you are ever in Asheville you should stop by to see her work.

2/20/21-Well, we took photos we labeled 2020tank-0211(PHOTO) & 2020tank-0212(PHOTO) as Aquarium Pieces.  We were thinking that odds were that they would end up in a tank.  Some folks from Naples, Florida had something else in mind and got them before we dropped them on the site.  Yeah, I think they had a good idea(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO).  Great job Linda & Lloyd!  Just dropped some new pieces onto the LONG/FLAT WOOD section of the web site.  One of them 2021dwlng-0537(PHOTO) is a Super-Stud.

2/20/21-Yes, we are still here and we are as busy as we could ever want to be.  Thank you to all of you for that.  And, thank you to all of you that have been patient with us being slow on getting orders out.  Having an ankle in a cast hasn't helped.  Excuses, excuses.  And, as usual, sorry about the lack of updates.  Here we finally go.  Marcus, "The Obi-Wan Kenobi of Driftwood" has done it again!  When 2018dwlng-0472(PHOTO) left here for Portsmouth, Rhode Island, it was a really pretty piece of driftwood.  We know the man is good and expected something special.  He actually might have outdone himself with this one(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)!  Speechless again.  Another one to call Coastal Living Magazine about.  Been bombing the site with new pieces.  And, will continue to do so when we get time.  There have been new pieces of driftwood added to all sections of the site.  Don't be scared of this ancient technology and check them out when you have a chance.  Oh yeah, don't forget to check us out on Instagram at obxdriftwood.  We are slowly creeping into the 21st century.

4/20/20-Bridges are still closed to out-of-towners, so our EVERYTHING IS 10% OFF "Going Out For Business" sale is still on!  We just added dimensions to the photo for a great new piece that stands upright on its own.  2020dwxl-0191(PHOTO).  In doing so, we realized that we can fit this one in a FedEx box instead of it having to go freight.  So, it just turned into a Large piece that can be shipped for about $100 less!  It is currently listed under the EXTRA-LARGE WOOD section of the site.  It will eventually be moved the LARGE WOOD section of the site.  Either way this one would be a great landscaping piece or a killer giant aquarium piece.

2/16/20-Russell Berry passed away last month.  When all is said and done, Russell will go down as the greatest "driftwooder" ever.  Russell was the Muhammad Ali of driftwood.  Over his lifetime he pulled enough pretty pieces of driftwood to fill the New Orleans Superdome.  No one could touch the quality that Russell was able to consistently produce.  He pioneered the driftwood business in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Russell Berry will always be the foundation of what is happening with the business of driftwood.  There is Russell Berry pulled driftwood in the Piranha Exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo, on the Cruise Ship Grand Princess, at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida.  There is at least one piece of Russell Berry driftwood in all 50 states in the country.  And, he did this up to the end of his 81 years.  I am so lucky to have been able to know this man.  He was a full on character.  A one-of-a-kind.  I will cherish the memories of bullshitting with him at the picnic table at his "camp," as he called it.  And, negotiating with him over a load of driftwood at his office, which was the parking lot at the Manteo McDonalds, while he at his daily Fillet of Fish sandwich.  Getting the phone call that I needed to hurry up and come and see him as he had a "Trophy" for me to look at.  Lot's of "Trophy's" over the years.  Priceless memories.  R.I.P.

1/25/18-Folks, we have always offered you a lower shipping price based on payment by check or money order.  This lower shipping rates excludes the credit card processing fees that come along with credit card purchases.  We do this as a favor the help you save a little money.  I like to save money too.  Don't think for a minute that credit card processing fees are not figured into pricing with any of your internet purchases.  You are paying for them.  Most business just don't let you know that.  But, with that being said, we have had a reoccurring driftwood hostage crisis here as of late.  If you tell us that you prefer to save a little $$$ and you are mailing a check, we take you for your word, set the piece of driftwood aside, and we do not sell it.  We ship every day here.  Shipping is a huge part of this business.  We know how long it takes for a check to get here from the day you said you were "sending it," from any state in the country.  When you say the check is in the mail from X state, we know that it will be here in X days from that state.  New rule.  When a check does not show up when it is supposed to, you will get an e-mail and a phone call if we have your number.  If you get this e-mail/phone call and you have not mailed the check you will have the option to make the purchase with a credit card that day.  If we are unable to make contact with you and you do not get back to us that day, your piece will be sold to the person that wanted to purchase your piece while it was being held hostage.  We have had multiple people wanting pieces that have been held hostage as of late.  We are unbelievably busy here.  That does not allow for time be a check/money order bounty hunter.  I hope you understand.          

1/1/18-Happy New Year!  Driftwood looks pretty in the snow.  Yes, it is snowing(PHOTO) here in the Outer Banks!  We do not get to see it very often here.  2017branchy-0042(PHOTO) & 2017lngplanks5(top)(PHOTO) left here separately for Fredericksburg, Virginia.  Once there they got hitched(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)!  Awesome job Scott!

Here at Outer Banks Driftwood, we do carry "Coastal Driftwood" that is pulled from an inlet(Oregon Inlet) and a coastal region(Outer Banks of N.C.) located on the East Coast.  We do not carry and sell wood promoted as "Coastal Driftwood," that came from an inland river running through a major metropolitan city that is not located on the coast.  And, no, we do not blow smoke at you pretending that we have some "Fancy Nancy" 5 step process of cleaning, pressure washing, drying, air blowing, and bristle brushing our driftwood that supposedly sets us above all of our competitors. We do own and occasionally use a pressure washer, when needed, to clean driftwood.  We do this when requested or when a piece is covered in marsh mud.  Pressure washing can and will take away the gray/white weathered look of driftwood that a lot of people like.  But, that being said, pressure washing can bring back the burnt orange look to a weathered piece of Red Cedar that others like.  Whatever floats your boat.  Just let us know.  And, if not done properly, pressure washing driftwood can and will splinter the wood.  A lot of times a good-old-fashioned garden hose with a jet nozzle is the better alternative.  No, we do not use "a specialty"soap nor do we ever plan on using a "specialty soap," as some of these miracle products can and will discolor driftwood.  For drying, we normally we use the giant orange ball of fire in the sky to naturally dry our wood, but at times we have to go the extra mile.  Our "mechanical" drying technique is...., yes the conventional oven that we use to quickly dry wet wood(that will fit in it) for rush orders.  We do not have an special air compressor to blow debris out of the nooks, holes, and groves.  But, we do have an electric leaf blower and we use it all the time on wood.  It will blow anything out of a piece of driftwood that is not permanently attached to it.  PS:  It is also a good tool to use to blow water out of your cell phone when you accidentally leave it in your Blue Jeans and hear it clanging around in the washing machine(this technique worked last week).  Cell phone still works!  Bristle brushing?  I am not even going there...  Anyway, also, there is no such thing as free shipping.  When was the last time the Post Office, U.P.S., Fed-Ex, or a Trucking company let you ship something for free?  We do not hike up the prices of our wood to sucker you into an impulsive free shipping purchase.  All that being said, I am not implying that there is no pretty driftwood that comes from an inland river that runs through a major metropolitan city, as I know there is.  I used to fish the waters of The Potomac River years ago and remember seeing a lot of pretty driftwood there.  But, our wood does come from the Coastal waters of the Outer Banks of North Carolina as advertised.  Folks, our goal is not to bamboozle you with gimmicks into supporting a side hustle.  This is a real business, it is not a hobby.  The goal here is to provide people with some of the best driftwood on the planet at an affordable price that is set to allow us to stay in business.  And, we work our butts of here to come through for you.  Enough of that.  Look what the ocean delivered yesterday(PHOTO) (PHOTO)!  This monstrosity was almost too heavy for three of us get out of the back of the truck.  Six new Small pieces of  driftwood were added to the site. An incredible aquarium/terrarium/taxidermist piece-2013dwsml-0122(PHOTO), a decorative extra-small piece-2013dwsml-0123(PHOTO), a extra-small piece with several knotty holes-2013dwsml-0124(PHOTO), a unique branchy piece-2013dwsml-0125(PHOTO), a really pretty decorative piece that can be positioned multiple ways-2013dwsml-0126(PHOTO), & finally one last good one for now-2013dwsml-0127(PHOTO).  Additional photos, dimensions & pricing for these pieces are available by double clicking the SMALL WOOD section of the web site.  Stay tuned as there is much more Coastal Driftwood to come......
  

Courtesy of Hurricane Irene, we currently have more driftwood in inventory(PHOTO) than ever before.  These are some of the prettiest pieces of wood that I have ever seen.  These are "Real Deal Holyfield" pieces of driftwood pulled from the waters of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, U.S.A!  Natural, unfinished, virgin, one-of-a-kind driftwood.  It is the best of the best.   

All wood is cleaned/washed of debris and shipped dry.  If you are looking for chemically treated driftwood shipped overseas from Malaysia, this is not the site for you.... 

A lot(more than 50%) of our inventory
(PHOTO) has not yet been listed in the site.  We are working every day on adding every piece(hundreds) available.  Bear with us as we add them on.  It is going to take a while.  Please take a minute to browse through the site and come back again as every day we are adding on.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Shipping is the toughest part of this business.  For the larger pieces of wood, there is no easy way to do it.  It is impossible to turn a profit in this business if we pay shipping.  We could double the price of the piece of wood to cover shipment like some sites do, or we can pass onto you our shipping costs.  Charging separate for each gives you the option of the much lower price for pick-up orders.  So, with that being taken into consideration, we pass our shipping onto the buyer.  Shipping for bulky heavy pieces can almost double the price you pay.  It is what it is...  We are always on the lookout for less expensive ways to ship and we are always open to suggestions.  We are located in Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina.  For those of you that vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we can hold purchased pieces of wood for pick-ups.  We do offer delivery service(by the truck & trailer load) for bulk purchases.  Shipping prices on web site are based on East Coast Shipping.  For those of you not located on the east coast, we can get your shipping cost a.s.a.p. 

Payment:  Credit card orders are processed through Pay Pal(on-line store coming soon).  If you e-mail([email protected]) the piece/pieces of wood that you want, we will send a Pay Pal invoice to your e-mail address that will easily prompt you through the Pay Pal payment method.  We accept checks(once it clears-wood ships).  Checks are to be made out and sent to:  Outer Banks Driftwood/ 1816 Seminole Street/ Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina 27948.  Sales Tax applies on in state internet orders and retail pick-ups.  We can always be reached for any questions at (252) 449-0232.

Artists, Taxidermists, Landscapers, Wedding Coordinators, Pet Store Owners/Aquarium Dealers, are welcome!  Resellers feel free to contact us for special pricing.  Every piece of wood on this site can be custom made into almost anything by driftwood artist Mike Preusser.  Mike specializes in coffee tables, wine bottle & jewelry holders.
