Trader Mort's 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. The upstairs wine area is easy to miss, but features a few more tiki artifacts.

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.

I've been here multiple times over the years, and each time, it feels a little more tired. The upstairs section is now just an office, and devoid of any interest. The rum selection has been abbreviated from years past, the overall selection of goods is a bit scant and the "deli" is disappointing. It's nice that they still sell tiki mugs here, though. I'll probably just drive by and admire from now on, as there's little reason to stop in as a tiki tourist.
