This is a charming store with some reasonably priced home items - it is particularly good for items that would suit a beach house with seaside related decorations and attractive bedding.

Hildreths has been around forever. I believe it is the oldest department store in America. It has great charm and lots of pretty things to buy for the home. The quality is very good and some of their offerings are quite special but in the main it sells good quality, reliably attractive goods. One of my favorite departments is the... More

Hildreth's is just a small department store so it's hard to see why anyone would rank it the second best attraction in the town. The show windows are nice, though, and there is a comfortable bench outside.

Hildreth's seems to have an uncanny sense of what homeowners will need. They always have what I want, the quality is high, the prices are sensible and the service intelligent and interested.

from the outside, Hildreth's in Southampton looks like you might want to pass it by. WRONG. Go in... you'll be pleasantly surpized! This very old department store has everything you need and then some! They carry top of line goods! Linens and patio supplies are excellent.

If I was buying a beach house this is exactly where I would shop my heart out! With every kind of fine linen, fine lotions and soaps, luxurious bath robes, and great decor for the house this is the place for home shopping! It's like a mini department store without any commercialism.

This is a historic business, founded in 1842. The sales people are all super nice and professional. The furnishings/furniture quality is excellent. The reason i do not give it the highest rating is that it is a super conservative store, with conservative pieces, almost a dated feel to the store. The selections are not unusual or unique.

Hildreth's is charm itself. It carries items as diverse as kitchen knives to luxury bedding to custom draperies to notions! And its great age (oldest department store in America!) means the building just rambles...the flreakywide plank hardwood floors, and staircases go up one place and come down somewhere else...magical!
