It is so important to shop local. Whatever you need it can be bought locally. Love this seahorse from Toodeloos Toy Store on 142 Main Street, Gloucester, MA and a great tee shirt from One Ocean One Love located at 47R Parker Street, Gloucester, MA 01930
Gloucester, Massachusetts. Atelier Cape Ann, a new bridal wear and alterations shop located at 57 Eastern Avenue, opened winter 2019. The changing window display beckons dreams and brightens this stretch along Rt. 127 with alluring bridal gowns and flower girl dresses showcased on the ground floor of this charming New England building. At the traffic lights, turn on to Eastern Avenue heading in the direction of Good Harbor Beach and Rockport. (If you’ve reached Jeff’s Variety you’ve gone too far.) There’s ample parking out back. Alterations by appointment only. http://www.ateliercapeann.com
John and Phyllis Linquata announce their new business, Serendipity’s Playhouse, Cape Ann’s first indoor play space! Join them at 4:30PM on Friday, March 29, 2019 for the Grand Opening!
88 Bass Avenue
After a year of renovations & permits and the challenges & kismet of converting a former tile store into a family- friendly destination, Serendipity Playhouse is open! The entryway tile design became a plus, matching the new vision at the site. This welcome playland features amusing attractions, an expansive wooden climbing structure, pint-sized imaginative activity stations, foam pit, ride on train, airplane see-saw, and a separate padded toddler space. Families can sign up for extra programs like Zoomba’s “Zoombini” package on Saturdays at 9AM.
The Linquatas sussed out an ideal location with plenty of parking and neighboring businesses that are a natural fit. Families and caregivers can refuel, meet up and juggle errands with a play break: Cape Ann Coffees is right next door; Charlie’s Place is across the street; Stop & Shop plaza is out back; and Good Harbor Beach is a walk away. The Linquatas are Gloucester residents and parents which is evident because 1)see their location intel and 2) the convenient hours…they open early enough for those families with wee early risers. The new venture is very much a family endeavor. John is running the day to day operations. Phyllis dreamed of opening an indoor wonderland and brings her professional expertise as a preschool teacher into building the business. Their daughter is helping out after school. They are determined to provide an active indoor play haven that’s super clean and engaging.
“WCVB #Chronicle 5: Along #MAshoreline scenic byway, a sisterhood of shops invites browsing” All images in this post are from the Chronicle story shot by Carl Vieira
“…Many of those entrepreneurs are women that (narrator) may have met on a very scenic north shore shopping trail!”
“(Narrator) The Essex Scenic Coastal Byway. Ninety miles of salt marsh and working waterfronts, dotted with famous clam shacks, antique stores, and open coastal dreamscapes, stretching from Lynn to Salisbury. The (Essex) Coastal (Scenic) Byway is ONE OF THE PRETTIEST, MOST INTERESTING and DISTINCTIVE DRIVES IN THE STATE. Now you can approach it from a distinctly feminine point of view. A group of women have joined forces to market themselves with a brochure, a sort of coastal byway treasure map.”

Valentine’s Day shopping is a delight at Alexandra’s Bread, a scrumptious artisan bakery and destination vintage and contemporary gift shop located at 265 Main Street, Gloucester, Massachusetts. One hopes for a line long enough to while away some browsing yet short enough to reach the counter before the bread and treats sell out.
Discover unique finds to share with everyone on your gift and just because lists at Alexandra’s Bread bakery.

Owner Kathy Reed opened the first and only AddMotor exclusive retail shop in the country a month ago, in the off season, in order to gear up and be fully ready for a busy 2019 rental season
Cape Ann Electric Bikes rolled into “The Commons” plaza at 214 Eastern Avenue, Gloucester, MA, in the corner space formerly occupied by The Urchin Exchange. “The Commons” shopping center is just past Pond Road and Common Crow along Rt. 127. Stores include Cake Ann and O’Neil Fitness.
Cape Ann Electric Bikes are bikes (“not scooters!”) equipped with an optional motor assist that’s set to a maximum 20mph for safe rentals. There are many styles and options to try out. All of the bikes are fitted with fat tires to accommodate year round enjoyment, all terrain, and New England weather. Snow? Sand? Wet leaves? Check check check. Bicycles built for two? Check. There are accessory trailers for tools, coolers, pets and kids. The shop will deliver rentals to your home or business. Cape Ann Electric Bike offers free assembly for bike sales and will comp a full day’s rental towards any purchase if you want to try before buying.
Cape Ann Electric Bikes will be showcasing their NEW business –and Gloucester and Cape Ann– at booths in the New England International Auto Show, host to 75,000 visitors annually and “voted the #1 consumer show in Boston by Bis Bash Media for the last 3 years.” Stop by January 17-21.
Owner Kathy Reed grew up in Gloucester and resides in Essex. She is a Mayor’s daughter. Can you name the Mayor? She’s currently favoring that bike with the blue wheels.
