at Hildreth's! They have all the fine lines of linens and everything you need for the home. Plus, it's so much nicer to shop locally and have good service!

“Lovely shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

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.

“Great Old Department Store for the Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

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 sewing corner where a marvelous lady can help you with anything you want to make out of wool or fabric. There are truly not many places that still have a service like this! My next favorite department is the bedding and bath area where very high quality linens are sold. It is definitely worth a visit- if you shop at the end of the summer you will find all the patio furniture on sale.

“Just a small department store, after all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

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.
