We had left our games at home, and by the description thought that we could find something interesting to do in the evenings - nothing there that was appropriate. I also wanted a few good used books, although the selection was decent - pricing them at 40% of retail seems really steep for a used book. We left without purchasing.

Maybe its history was as a bookstore but I think they're pushing the envelope in still calling themselves a bookstore.

The Kite Koop used to be located at Landmark Plaza, but in their move they have lost focus. The kites used to be amazing - now not so much.

If you are a kid at heart, come to this store and enjoy it along with the other kids. There is something for everyone and something you don't need but have to have. Games, toys, books, novelty fun - it's here. Then go across the street for an ice cream at Muller's.

It was more of a gift shop, but one of the better on Chincoteague. I personally was doing a bit of bookhunting, and in that case they don't have many used books that are worthwhile.
