If you find yourself meandering through Martha’s Vineyard be sure to stop at Alley’s General Store in West Tisbury. This store is pure New England in its randomness and fun. History is that it started out as a man heading across the island in his peddler’s cart, he’d move from town to town with his cart full of cool stuff. I love that all these years later Alley’s is still going strong.
What’s interesting about this place is that it’s truly full of anything you can think of: fresh coffee, magazines, scrubbies for your sink, nylons, greeting cards, art supplies, fish lures, ice cream, perm kits…. I’m assuming by now you get my point.
