I enjoy stopping by Staintons every time that I am in Ocean City. I always feel that I can get a gift for any occasion here and its not something I will find everywhere else

This place has about 30-40 different "segmented" (roughly informal 10x12 ft.) shops by various people (artists, cra
fters, giftstore owner-types). It's a lot of fun to explore and some artists/owners are there at times to talk to as well. It's also a good retreat from the heat in O.C. and they have A/C and restrooms.

Far too many downtowns have substantial store fronts which are vacant. Stainton's is a prime example of how to keep residents and tourists coming downtown to shop. On every trip to Ocean City we stop for grandchildren's gifts, home decor items, local books and craft items. And there is so much more there - jewelry, collectibles, sports items, and the list goes on. It is very easy to spend an hour just touring the various shops. Don't miss this jewel on the Jersey Shore.

I loved this place. It was an old fashioned multi level department store decades ago, but now is limited to the first floor, but it is filled with over 80 vendors that see everything from plants to gourmet food items to old fashioned carolers to vintage albums to trendy clothing and accessories. Just loved it.

Stainton's Gallery of Shops is located in what was once the biggest department store in Ocean City. Unfortunately it is no longer in business, but the shops have replaced it. It is now a mini-mall type of gallery with many types of shops exhibiting crafts, art works, and all kinds of other creative merchandise. We have purchased some local Ocean City art and have it on display at home. This is definitely worth a visit.

We walked in and they greeted us as follows: " We close in 10 minutes". No hello, no offer of help, just wanted us to leave and leave quickly. I would not go back.

There is something here for everyone. Antiques, clothes, books, toys, sports memorabilia and much more. You can spend a lot of time in this place. This is a great standout among the Asbury Avenue shops.
