Provincetown's Marine Specialties is a crazy store on Commercial Street. A Provincetown landmark for over 45 years, this store offers so much more than marine supplies. It is sometimes just referred to as "P-towns crazy army-navy surplus store".
The eclectic mix of everything immaginable has found itself at home here in P-town. One needs to take their time to have their eyes adjust to the sensory overload and the assortment of goods... salvage, surplus, closeouts, irregulars, overruns, misprints, mistakes, spare parts, odd lots, cast-offs, new, nearly new and the utlimate in tacky. Its an overgrown mix. Souvenirs, License Plates, Clothes, Dishes, Boating Equipment, Rope, Anchor Chain, Sea Shells... the mix changes every day.
Besides all the treasures the store sells there also is the most incredible assortment of miscellaneous items that contribute to its decor... an in-house tug boat, an ancient diving suit, life preservers from the 1800s, old bicycles, bouys, fishing nets, lobster traps, and so much more, and most of it hangs from the ceiling!
Even if you find nothing to take home (how could that be possible) you will most definitely enjoy your visit to Provincetown's most interesting shopping spot.
