A great selection of books but so much more. There are wonderful gift items here, some related to literature for your favorite book worm, but thoughtful gifts for kids and adults that are unique. Love both parts of this bookstore and find that the employees are helpful and many of them are book lovers.

Store has a mix bag of books, gifts, toys, really unique place to explore in 2 buildings joined as one, always like walking the main street checking out all the nice little shops.

The store is lovely, but I didn't have a great experience. I bought Elf on a Shelf, which came up at 25% off the price at the register. The salesperson said it must be the wrong price and asked another salesperson, she agreed that the price must be wrong and probably an old sale price. They never asked a manager... More

My husband and I shopped here several times over the week were at Rehoboth Beach. Very nice selection of gifts and books. My only complaint was an older cashier felt it necessary to decide I didn't need two promotional buttons for purchasing the book "Tales of the Peculiar and silently held one back. I thought that a bit petty as... More

We've been coming to Rehoboth/Dewey Beach for 3 years now and every year I come into this bookstore at least twice a week. I should just get a membership. They have more than books and in the morning they serve coffee. They have a good selection of cards, home decor, clothing and other accessories as well. A lot of things... More

My daughter wanted to buy the hard bound 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' so we stopped in (I consider myself to be frugal but have a weakness when my kids ask for books). In addition to books, this store has many, varied novelties, lotions, accessories and decorations. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Nice place to duck into to look at books as well as lots of other interesting items you can't find elsewhere in Rehoboth

Once again, my family and I had the pleasure of shopping at Browseabout! We make it a point to stop in every summer we visit Rehoboth. Not only do they have a large selection of books, they have beautiful gifts and home decor. Be sure to pick up a few of the mini wooden replicas of your favorite places in... More

I love coming in first thing and browsing some summer reads and then picking them up to read during my beach trip. I believe in supporting local and always do this when visiting any town...so make sure you stop by, look around and help out some great local establishments.

I love bookstores. I make a point to try and come into this one whenever I'm at the beach. Not only does this store have a variety of books for all ages and interest, but they have a lot of fancy soaps and lotions, toys, games and puzzles, little gifts, a little cafe counter where you can order coffee or...
