 50 retailers and vendors.
Stone Harbor radiates a vibe that is totally
upscale with unexpected shopping finds from jewelry to designer duds all in a two-block radius. Centered on 96th Street and Third Avenue, the area is dotted with wrought- iron flower boxes, an old town clock and dozens of highly-lacquered black benches. Relax and savor everything Stone Harbor has to offer – this is your kind of place!
Asbury Avenue, between 6th and 14th streets, is the heart of Ocean City so brush off the sand and head to dozens of shops, cafes and attractions to browse, dine and enjoy. Forget some necessary beach items – sun screen, chairs, towels, beach toys? You’ll find what you need and more along the Avenue. The downtown area also features art galleries, artisan ice cream and bakeries, fashion boutiques, exquisite dining and more. Head to the Boardwalk for Johnson’s Popcorn, fudge, flip flops or new, stylish shades.
Enjoy Third Fridays in Millville’s Glasstown Arts District and Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts and browse through private galleries and shops in buildings with rich architectural histories. Restaurants, cafes and pubs are open – the
Old Oar House and Winfield’s, housed in a century-old building that was an F. W. Woolworth store back in the day.
Remember when every town had a book store where you could browse to your heart’s content or even sit and read for a while in comfortable surroundings? The staff at Bogart’s Books is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and will order any book not in stock, new or used. Relax over a cappuccino or espresso at the café before shopping on N. High Street for ladies wear and accessories, children’s clothing, imported goods, antiques, collectibles and more.
Tanger Outlets – The Walk in Atlantic City between the Convention Center and the casinos is filled with more than a hundred of your favorite outlet stores and retailers. Men’s, women’ and children’s stores carry the latest merchandise plus there’s a wide selection of great places to grab a snack or sit for a while to enjoy a nice meal while you inventory your purchases.
With more than 85,000 square feet of out- door fun, Bass Pro Shops Outpost really does have something for everyone – fishing, hunting, boating camping, you name it.
Even the names of the shops in Woodland
V i l l a g e – Wild Magnolia, The Sheppard’s Hook, Ain’t She Sweet Candy Shop – conjure up the image of a relaxed shopping experience. Stroll along the landscaped paths and discover more than a dozen unique boutique-style stores housed in colorful garden sheds, offering one of a kind merchandise. The Red Door Gallery represents the work of Cape May County artists and talented craftspeople. Or, pop into The Cheese Shop and Jammin’ Jellies for gourmet goodies, dips, dressings and salsa. Summer Studio has hand-crafted jewelry, crystals and oils, all made by a local entrepreneur. Make a day of it with breakfast or lunch at Studibagel’s Garden Café featuring sandwiches, freshly-baked breads, bagels and wraps while sipping a cappuccino, latte or tea with a bite of something sweet – cookies, brownies or macaroons. 1943 N. Route 9, Clermont; www.gardengreenhouse.net/woodland-village
Oh, the gas station/garage turned into a premier shopping experience? That’s the West End Garage, a shopping paradise with antique furniture, vintage memorabilia, estate jewelry and The Beach Plum Café next door for a latte and farm-to-table pastries. Yum! G
