Since 1996

The Clematis Street News Stand opened in 1996 and quickly grew into “The Biggest Little Store in the World.” A neighborhood landmark with a rich and varied history, we’ve been known at various times as a liquor store, a candy shop and an Internet café during the span of nearly two successful decades in the newspaper, magazine and book selling business.

These days, we’re the ultimate destination for the perfect greeting card. We have thousands of cards for every imaginable occasion – from the ridiculous to the sublime – created by a wide variety of publishers. Endless options of written messages and artistic renderings await your selection. Each will surely be received by your friends, family members and co-workers with sincere appreciation.


We feature special gifts of interest including vintage painted signs from the West Palm Beach area and books by local authors. Whether you are looking for upscale tile coasters, jewelry, clothing, musical stuffed animals or quirky items reflecting the latest popular trends, we’ll help you identify just the gift you need. Our selection of inspirational t-shirts and creative wooden quotation signs is unmatched.

Tourists adore our souvenir tropical and nautical gifts, tote bags, resortwear, shirts, sandals and shorts. With the vacationer in mind, we also have a large selection of convenience items such as candy, cakes, cookies, snacks and soda for that last minute trip to the beach.

Stepping through the light-filled entry onto our restored, original wooden floors, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported back to the Boardwalk of yesteryear. Treasures await and beckon from each builtin shelf, patch of wall and exceptionally organized display. There’s something new to discover in every corner. The more you look and linger, the more you want to stay and shop for hours.


Friendly Clematis Street News Stand personnel welcome you immediately and are ready to help as much as needed. Our neighbors love that they can run in with their pets for the morning newspaper and then relax street side over coffee with their four-legged friends. We’re on a first-name basis with almost all of them – the pets and their people!


Downtown West Palm Beach is a fabulous place to live, work, vacation and relax. The City Trolley offers free rides and fun way to see all that our beautiful city has to offer including shops, award winning restaurants and enticing nightclubs. Elegant offices, hotels and charming condos are just a short couple of blocks away.


The Clematis Street News Stand is steps away from Flagler Drive, the Great Lawn and the West Palm Beach Waterfront. We’re located at the very heart of popular festivities throughout the year including SunFest, St. Patty’s Day Parade, Moonfest, 4th on Flagler, Veteran’s Day Parade and Clematis by Night.
