Despite the name, you are not required to command a merchant ship or be a ranking naval officer to shop here.
All right that is a dumb joke. But the Sea Captains’ Thrift Shop is a very nice place and they have a really well-curated collection of things. It’s off the main drag (though still on Rt 124 so not difficult to find) so sometimes I forget about it, but it’s always a pleasant place to stop. Everything is so nice, though, sometimes I miss the process of looking through all the funny weird stuff to find the gem. These things are all lovely and well-researched, and presented in a beautiful way, it’s sometimes too pretty for my tastes, ha ha.
But if you are looking for a gift, or need some clothes for work, it’s great. I also just learned about their Annex where they have furniture and larger stuff.
