We are so blessed on Cape Ann to have truly a wealth of wonderful bookshops. I was picking up a few gifts Saturday to get my boxes off to family members who live out of town and stopped by Toad Hall to say hello. Leta and Mary-Beth were very busy nonetheless, super helpful and friendly. Toad Hall always has a thoughtfully selected collection of superb and interesting books and I especially love their display of books by local authors. Stop by and browse, you’ll be sure to find treasures for loved ones!
Thank you to Leslie Heffron who mentioned in last week’s podcast that she had done nearly all her holiday shopping at the Cape Ann Museum. The Museum’s gift shop is simply a treasure trove of unique and special gifts for loved ones of all ages on your Christmas list.
The inspirational and beautiful Folly Cove Designers Catalogue is in its third printing! First published in 1996 in conjunction with an exhibition held at the Cape Ann Museum, the book incorporates updated information.
From the witty and wonderful art of Virginia Lee Burton comes the Cape Ann Museum’s exclusive new carry-all tote bag “Gossips.” Made of a very sturdy 100 percent cotton, with magnetic closure and zippered inside pocket.
The Museum is closed tomorrow, Wednesday, for the 7th Annual Women’s Luncheon, and will reopen Thursday at the usual 10am time. Open Tuesday through Sunday, the Cape Ann Museum also has a terrific schedule of events lined up for Saturday, December 12th, for the Middle Street Walk. Click here for programming. The Museum is free and open to the public all day.
Liv, Matt and Asley surprised me with several of these hand screened French kitchen towels from La Provence. This shop is a treasure trove of colorful, fun, and yet very practical, holiday gifts; truly wonderful for the special someone on your holiday wish list that loves to cook and to entertain.
Especially noteworthy are their pure cotton Provence tablecloths, which come as is, or very lightly coated with a virtually undetectable acrylic finish that you can simply sponge clean. The kids spilled red wine on my new yellow poppy tablecloth last night and when I noticed this morning I thought for sure it was ruined. The caked on red wine wiped clean in a second! Anyone who has had linens badly stained by red wine knows this is remarkable.
