Provincetown is known for its independent spirit, and it shows in the art galleries and boutiques that line Commercial Street. From high-end design to bins filled with beach chotchkies, you'll find great gifts and mementos from your time at our Provincetown boutique hotel at these shops. Spend an afternoon poking in and out of the myriad of shops on Commercial Street, and don't miss these three of our recommendations for the best shopping in Provincetown.
This Boston-based design shop moved to P'town in 2014 and gained more space to show off its amazing collection of furniture, housewares, and art. Channel some funky P'town style into your home or personal style with a new print or conversation-piece jewelry, all from New England artisans. Don't miss the back corner of the showroom where the shop displays rotating selections from local artists.
This army-navy surplus store is a P'town staple that's been open for over 50 years. With its seemingly endless amount of merchandise, you'll never know what you're going to find in this warehouse space. Maybe you'll walk away with a vintage leather jacket, a novelty license plate for your garage, or a handful of typewriter keys. You have to experience Marine Specialties to truly understand it.
