Arm Vibes Bracelet Bar | 658 Cookman Avenue

Arm Vibes Bracelet Bar, located inside the Shoppes in the Arcade, is the Jersey Shore’s first permanent jewelry experience. Permanent jewelry is welded together instead of secured with a clasp (although there is a clasp option if the permanent kind is not for you!) Permanent bracelets are a cute and sentimental way to celebrate the bond you have with the bridal party. The bracelet boutique has a build-your-own Bracelet Bead Bar and the entire shop is available to be booked to host private parties.

Freedom Rocks | 550 Cookman Avenue #106

Freedom Rocks crystal shop and boutique is always hosting unique and experienced readers, mediums, and spiritual services inside of the Cookman Avenue location. Freedom Rocks has a special Aura Camera on-site, which offers a glimpse into the subject’s energetic field at a particular moment in time through an Aura Photo. After the photo is taken, sit with an experienced Freedom Rocks staff member to receive an aura reading where you will discuss the colors in your aura and what it all means. Aura photography is available during store hours based on staff availability. It is recommended that visitors schedule an appointment in advance. Also be sure to check out Freedom Rocks’ event calendar, as there are often in-store events such as yoga classes, community gong baths, tarot card readings, and more.
