New Shops Part 1: Scout Vintage Finds in East Gloucester

Discovered on one of my recent scouting trips around Cape Ann: a new shop, appropriately named Scout Vintage Finds. The shop is small in size but generous in spirit, with enough interesting vintage pottery, sewing notions, small furniture, lighting and more to make you wreck your car as you drive past, craning your neck trying to see all the stuff inside before you find a parking space. The shop is located at 186 East Gloucester, just across and up the street from the North Shore Arts Association as you head toward the turn to Rocky Neck. The owner of this new venture is Karen King, seamstress, milliner and expert in all things vintage. She sews beautiful lavender sachets out of vintage linens for the shop, and when you stop by the shop to see the goods she has in stock, be sure to ask about her collection of hats — no, not hats she finds at estate sales — these are hats she makes. Scout Vintage Finds is an unusual and unusually perfect addition to East Gloucester.

Stay in touch with Scout Vintage Finds through the store’s facebook page and on twitter (@scoutfinds).

    Could you please wrap up one of everything? I’ll be in to pick it all up first thing in the morning. This store is one of those few places that truly is a treasure trove every time I go. Magic! Make this store your haunt, so you won’t miss out!
