About Us

Milton and Denise Burns both arrived to the Coastal area in the mid 90’s. Milton escaped to the beach after some harsh winters in the Washington D.C. area. Raised as a Tobacco Farmer’s son Durham,NC, Milton is no stranger to hard labor. “I used to crop tobacco each morning at 4 a.m. before school” “My Mother was a stay at home Mom and she cooked everything the family grew” I learned good family values from a hard working family with four children. Milton first enjoyed boating and swimming when he moved to Sunset Beach, but later decided that a boat took up a lot of time and money, and looked for a more inexpensive hobby where he could also make additional income. Milton later met a friend David Helms, who turned out to be an inspiration in his spiritual beliefs and a great business adviser. Soon after, In the Shade Beach Canopies” was born. “I live at the beach year around, I am not coming in to reap the benefits of the tourist season and leaving.” “If you want a tent put up in February, I’ll be here.”

Milton and Denise live in Ocean Isle Beach with their Boston Terrier, Corky, 3 kitties, Oreo, Princess and Pixie.
