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...More

Stopped in while strolling downtown and I must say it has great vendors with unique items. Will probably stop by before we leave OC to pick something up. Like how each section was a different theme.
