Len Libby Candies: A 1,700 pound chocolate moose!
If you're looking for something different to bring home as a souvenir, you might find it at Len Libby Candies. Of course, the store's main attraction is Lenny, a 1,700 pound milk chocolate moose surrounded by a family of dark chocolate black bears! But the store also specializes in sweet treats and souvenirs - you'll find a nice selection of salt water taffy, along with lobster-shaped chocolate bars (and the chocolate is very good), chocolate beach pebbles that look surprisingly real, and a special caramel taffy, the recipe of which is unique to the area. All the candies and chocolates are handmade, following an 80-year-long tradition of candy-making. It's definitely worth stopping by!
What to buy: The caramel taffy was really good, and so was the chocolate.
What to pay: Depends how hungry you are, but I'd say $10 should buy you a nice and unique (and tasty) souvenir.

Wiggleweigle's Book Warehouse: Get your summer dose of beach reads!
Another beautiful day at the beach but you forgot to bring a book? Just walk up to Wiggleweigle's Book Warehouse to pick up a few novels for just a few bucks!

There are many light romance and fantasy novels (perfect for the beach, I guess), but you'll also find some best-sellers and a classics section. There's also a really good selection of children's and YA books. It turned out to be my favorite store in town!
What to buy: I raided the classics section and came home with a few plays by George Bernard Shaw and Henrik Isben
