As far as shops, there are many options to choose from on Main Street. But one shop you definitely don’t want to miss is the Mayflower Shop. They have a wide selection of souvenirs and home decor pieces, many of which are made locally on Cape Cod. All the time, they get in new unique collections of items. There’s a little something for everyone.
Not far on Main Street is Christmas Joy and More of Chatham. This store sells Christmas goodies all year, but they are also another great gift shop and place to pick up Cape Cod souvenirs.
There is a local business called Forest Beach Designer & Goldsmiths. However, it is actually five miles from the beach. Still, if you don’t mind the drive, this shop is a great place to pick up some Cape Cod souvenirs in the form of handmade jewelry crafted by local artisans.
