Humuhumu’s description

Trader Mort's is a liquor store, in operation since 1964 when it was opened by Lance "Mort" Morton. It serves as a sort of gateway to tiki-heavy Shelter Island, where you can also find Humphrey's Half Moon Inn

. This is a small liquor store, and the selection isn't fantastic, but its vintage feel makes it charming nonetheless. An iconic tiki outside at the corner was carved by Eli Hedley

. The upstairs wine area is easy to miss, but features a few more tiki artifacts. The store has had their own tiki mugs for sale off and on over the years.

It's a liquor store, with a fantastic tiki exterior.

There was a nice little tiki mug and swizzle stick section. They also had a few dvds for sale.

The rum selection has dropped to the same level as the average mom & pop liquor store. Or worse. We were there a month ago, and for the life of me, I can not see how they stay in business.

Simply put, there is very little reason to go in other than to say you've gone in.
