Our Long Story... Short.
Long Story Short. is a gift store and tour centre in the cutest town in the Atlantic: St. George’s Bermuda. Our owner, Bermudian blogger and entrepreneur Kristin White, thoughtfully curates the shelves with a focus on social progress, the African Diaspora, women, and environmental sustainability.
You’ll find books by women of color, gifts from social enterprises, planet-friendly jewelry and housewares, vintage bicycle rentals, custom hula hoops, and top-rated tours and experiences that celebrate our island home, including our popular food + history bicycle tour. Long Story Short is also the home of award-winning local artisan skincare line, Salt Spray Soap Co, with a workshop right in the store.
We are story-tellers, tree-huggers, proud feminists, LGBTQ+ allies, and wear the ‘social justice warrior’ badge proudly.
