While this store overlooks one of the busiest intersections on the Cape, the chaos outside is strangely silent from within. This establishment truly focuses on variety, featuring both stunning turn-of-the-century handcrafted items and some very Cape-y knick nacks. Don’t forget the self-playing Nickelodean, price tag: $20,000.
