The Mayflower Shop has historic roots, having served the Chatham community since 1885 as a retail gift shop. However it offered more than souvenirs, such as newspapers and magazines, greeting cards and stationary, toys and hobbies, candy, and assorted necessities. The current owners purchased The Mayflower Shop in 2011 and pledged to honor the shop’s history.
Today The Mayflower Shop features the most unique card shop in Cape Cod, plus an expanded toys and hobbies section that features both retro and modern finds. The biggest change to the shop is an expanded home decor section, with unique pieces sourced from local and national artists, some exclusively created for The Mayflower.
