271 Main St. Gloucester
Here on the blog, I read that there is a seasonal “pop-up” store on Main Street called Present. However, I couldn’t find any mention of the address, so I headed out with my camera to hunt the store down and shoot it (shoot photos of it, that is). I found it at 271 Main Street:
Full information about hours is in the window:
Other items include beautiful (locally made) nature-themed tee-shirts:
Oh yeah, remember to come visit us at Present‘s opening tonight! 5pm-9pm 271 Main St. next to Leonardo’s. Great locally-made gifts! Stop in and say “Hi!”.
I spent the weekend with the girlfriends for our annual Girls Only Christmas Party. On the way to the party I made a quick stop at Present on Main Street to pick up their Christmas gifts. We keep a budget of around $10 each and of course I was able to find the perfect gifts and stay on budget. I picked up each of the girls “Happy Clam” thongs for only $12 from Gloucester Oneseas. They loved them! They laughed out loud when they opened the clam shell and found what was inside.
There really isn’t anything better in life than a happy clam now is there?
The calendars are also available online here, and I will send them with a complimentary gift card.
If you’ve been down to Present at 122 Main St., you’ve seen the gorgeous locally-made gifts from several talented artisans. I’m adding the Good Harbor calendar to my Cape Ann calendar, note cards, and prints that are available at the shop. Many of us are adding items throughout the holiday season, so come downtown often and shop locally!
Thursday, November 3 · 5:00pm – 9:00pm
Join us as we celebrate the opening of Present for the 2011 holiday season. Come to our new spot at 122 Main Street, right next to The Franklin. We will have food and drink and plenty of great locally-made goods.
Present 2011 is:
Twin Light Studios
There’s not much worse feeling than waking up and realizing you are that horrible son or daughter that forgot to get your dad a present.
If you are THAT person, fear not. We will be open at the dock to bail your ass out.
Give us a call at (978) 283-1454 and order your dad the easiest most no-brainer gift ever and watch him smile when you deliver them. We open at 5AM 7 days a week but it’s best to call ahead so we can put exactly what you need aside for you.
I can tell you personally that lobsters as a gift have a huge impact which people do not forget. There isn’t anything where you make as much impact for as little money as lobster.
We will be open Father’s Day, best to call ahead and put in your order and we will put exactly what you want aside for your morning pick-up.

Last Minute Gift Special at PRESENT 271 Main St.!!!!!

We’ve decided to use Men’s Night as a chance to showcase some to Gloucester’s finest. We will be having tastings by Ryan and Wood and Cape Ann Brewing Company, along with all sorts of beautiful gifts handmade in Gloucester.
All that and we promise LIVE GIRLS KNITTING!
I am attaching a little flier I put together.
And while you’re downtown, stop by PRESENT at 271 Main St. for a glass of wine and the best assortment of unique gifts on the island! See you there!
A reminder – The Cape Ann calendars are available at PRESENT or online here.
It’s Black Friday and everyone else is “over the bridge” and “up the line” bumping elbows at the malls, but we locals can stay on the island with our wish lists. The pop-up shop(see related Times article) Present has an incredible selection of unique gifts.
Present is a seasonal art collective made up of fifteen local men and women offering a bevy of eclectic fine craft. Living, creating and recycling on Cape Ann are common themes reflected in the goods including bags made from reclaimed sweaters and recycled sailcloth. Look for jingle flounder, lovely wreaths, hand-knit hats, pottery, felted flowers and bowls, fish prints, and photographs inspired by local people and landscapes.
Delightfully unusual wares also include unique prints and collages, hand-dyed clothing printed with seaweed and other found materials, clever clothing and accessories for children, iron-pressed sandwich keepers, hand-knit wire jewelry, beautifully sewn doll clothes, and itty bitty jewels. Present is a great place to shop for pretty things and one-of-a kind gifts and ornaments.
Present is Karen Chapin, Amanda Cook, Jane Cunningham, Jessica Demarjian, Elizabeth Grammas, Frieda Grotjahn, Jill Josephson, Pam Lally, Sharon Lowe, Stephanie Mason Thibodeau, Camilla MacFadyen, Melanie Murray-Brown, Erin and Scott Place, and Mary Rhinelander.
You can visit the holiday pop-up shop at 271 Main Street, Gloucester from November 6th through December 24th, 2010.
Hours: Monday through Saturday 10-6, Sunday 12-5; extended evening hours on Thursday; also open 6-9 on Men’s and Ladies’ Nights
BTW- You can get my Cape Ann calendars at Present, and for those of you who live out of town, you can order them here.
This is the back cover of the new Sun Up~Sun Down calendar. If you are the first person to identify all 12 photo locations, you will win a calendar of your choice! Some rules and regulations- Be as specific as possible- Atlantic Ocean or Gloucester harbor are just a little too vague. ;)
So have fun and good luck! And if you need a closer look, check out the Sun Up~Sun Down calendar photos at Present! — Sharon
