Durable, practical, fun, and cololorful–I can’t decide which of Frieda Grotjahn’s Fiesta designs I like better, VIVA or the Greasy Pole–both would be wonderful fun to own! All Again and Again bags are made of recycled sailcloth.

Again and Again Fiesta bags are available at their design studio, located at 195 East Main Street and at Alexandra’s Bread, 265 Main Street, Gloucester. See previous GMG posts about Again and Again: Shopping Local ~ Again and Again

Brian Orr’s 10-10-10
Here’s the video explaining it with
More to come from Dr Orr.
Friends of the Orphans provides financial and volunteer support to Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”), which has orphan homes and outreach programs in nine countries.
Brian Orr, a long-time donor and Friend, is celebrating his birthday on October 10, 2010. He generously wants to share this celebration with all of the children we support and came up with plans for Triple Ten day. More than anything for his birthday, he wants donations to go to Friends of the Orphans to help the children of NPH. His goal is to have 10 x 10 x 10 people (1,000 total!) to contribute $10 each by 10-10-10. Meeting that goal would mean $10,000!
We are so grateful to Brian for his ongoing support and for his efforts on this wonderful fundraiser, which will help thousands of children!

There is a limited edition copy of Mary Rhinelander’s Blue Willow China Pattern Design at Alexandra’s Bread Co.
It hasn’t been made into china yet but I’m thinking that some of the finer shops in town like The Black Swan, Stone Leaf, Pauline’s Gifts or Pisces would sell the hell out of this if it were made into China to collectors or people that love the area.
Timeless, just like the stuff that comes out of the Acorn Press. This framed, numbered, limited edition print sells for only $35 at Alexandra’s Bread Co.

Every day when I get home Snoop Maddie Mad asks me the same question. “You have cobble?” I try to swing down and get them for her and The Bean a couple times a week. They are soft and chewy and they keep the girls busy tearing through them for about 20 minutes.
Very reasonably priced Amos Pewter Sealife Collection now available at Alexandra’s Bread on Main Street.

Yawn…… just another cool ass local item for sale at Alexandra’s Bread. The hits just keep coming! Also available othere classics from our childhood- Orangeade and Lemon & Lime styles.
If you haven’t stopped by there yet you’re missing out on a local gem for sure. Here’s a detailed map- Alexandra’s Bread Map- Now you have no excuse.
Every time I go into Alexandra’s bread I’m astounded by all the cool stuff in there. It’s not just bread either. I hesitate to say that Alexandra’s talents are almost wasted in this space because I’d hate to see her go, but really she ought to be a buyer for a huge store. She has assembled the coolest collections of things like Arley Pett’s 1899 Gloucester Map Coasters.
You may recall some of Isabel Natti’s work from the Acorn Press.

If you were born in Gloucester you remember Twin Lights Soda. You remember those heavy glass soda bottles and you remember the crates that they used to put the heavy glass bottles into. You remember the different cool flavors like birch beer, and cream soda.
Well Alexandra’s Bread exclusively carries Twin Light T Shirts. She had them made up with permission from the bottler. For a little bit of nostalgia, cruise on down to Alexandra’s Bread, grab a cobble or six and check out all teh cool stuff on the walls for sale.
