“Selecting items for the Oceana customer that are exceptional in quality, unique, and as far as possible, made by local artists or woman owned businesses, is what I strive for,” said Oceana owner Jane Williamson

True to its name, Oceana provides a seascape like shopping experience with items that have an ocean theme. Calming colors of blues and pale greens are reflected in many items throughout the store. Some items, such as hand blown glass waves, look like they are frozen in time.

“Many of the store’s pieces are truly works of art. Oceana customers often tell us that our store is the first place they go to when they arrive on vacation,” said Williamson.  

Oceana sells Simon Pearce, Mariposa, Wellfleet Clocks, Mark Preu Photography, local authors and books on Cape Cod. You will find hand made jewelry selections by Tom Kruskal, Anna Beck, and Steven Douglas, among others. Oceana also stocks many items that are fair trade that provide living wages for the craftspeople. “I feel strongly that Oceana, a small family-run and female-owned business, support other small and female-run businesses,” said Williamson.

Voted Cape Cod’s best gift store for consecutive years, Oceana has fresh and functional items for every budget, and no matter the price of the item, gift wrapping is always free. 

Located at 1 Main Street Square in Orleans, Oceana shares the same parking lot as The Hole in One and Mahoney’s Atlantic Grill. If you cannot shop in person, you can shop their robust online store.
