We always shop here for beach reading material and greeting cards not found in your ordinary haunts. The staff is super helpful.

I don’t really buy paperback books, since I use a Kindle, BUT this was a really fun place to visit. It was a bit cramped, but since it’s one of the most popular attractions in Seaside, we expected that. Aside from books, they sold greeting...More

The town of Seaside is beautiful, but our favorite part of the trip was this hidden gem and the upstairs record store. My kids could not get over that there was a whole store dedicated to selling CDs and Records 🤣 A must visit!

I LOVE this place! Books galore downstairs. Music and fun gifts upstairs. So nostalgic and quaint! I could spend hours in this one store.

We go to Sundog every visit to 30A. It's a great place to get something to read on the beach. They have books for all ages and many that are specific to the area. If you're a book lover, I'd suggest stopping in.
