Arley Pett’s Beautiful Old School Gloucester Map Coasters At Alexandra’s Bread

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.

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.

Hand Spun Yarns At Present On Pleasant

Is there some kind of knitting revolution going on?   Between these hand spun yarns at Present on Pleasant Street, Coveted Yarns on East Main Street, and Kat Valentine’s knitting blog I feel like there is some devious secret knitters plot brewing.   Be aware people, they’re all around us these knitters!
