Hopscotch across the island for ocean-themed mementos, one-of-a-kind glassware, and more.

Midnight Farm is a browser’s paradise of funky furniture and unique finds—quilts from India, jars of homemade mango-lime salsa, and kitchen chairs with denim covers. Vineyard Haven.

Interior designer Liz Stiving-Nichols hand-selects each piece at Bespoke Abode, from driftwood picture frames to porthole mirrors and stools. Her Townie Pillows, stamped with Vineyard town names and zip codes, are an island favorite. Vineyard Haven.

If you’re looking for nautically inspired gifts, head to AquaNaut Gallery. Many of the intricate watches (decorated with ships and lighthouses), scrimshaw knives, and shadow boxes inlaid with seashells are made by island craftsmen. 76 Main St., Vineyard Haven; 508/687-9865.

Opened in 1858, Alley’s General Store is a throwback to an era when every neighborhood had a one- stop shop. Come here for picnic fixings, comic books, and, of course, your morning coffee. 1045 State Rd., West Tisbury; 508/693-0088.

At the light-filled Martha’s Vineyard Glassworks, artisans create colorful vases and tableware. Best bet: the multihued pitchers.

Vineyard Vines pays homage to the island’s preppy heritage with whimsical ties and polo shirts in various pastel shades. Edgartown.
