SOLD OUT! GMG This Is Gloucester DVD SOLD OUT!

Well it only took 3 days but we sold out of them- all 100 DVDs.  I’ll be writing out a check to the Saint Peter’s Fiesta for Rebuilding the Greasy Pole.

I called the company who manufactured the DVD’s and they tell me they can get me another 50 by the end of the week so I went ahead and ordered another 50 of which 10 or so I’ll be keeping for gifts for myself.  Thanks a bunch to those of you who bought one not only because I happen to think they are great gifts, but because it is nice to show your support for the labor of love that is GMG.  Don’t forget about EJ’s and Sharon’s Calendars, they make nice gifts as well. You can see them here and here

So if you didn’t order one over these past few days then you have another shot at ordering them for holiday presents.

If any local folks that have already paid want to pick up their DVDs they can swing down the dock this morning and get theirs early: 95 East Main Street,Gloucester MA.  Just email me to let me know.

Same deal as last time for the 40 we have left to sell and will be coming in at the end of the week-

I ordered 100 DVDs and am so very pleased with the way they came out.  To say with the investment in time and passion that I haven’t been on pins and needles to see the finished results from the DVD company I’d be lying but I couldn’t be happier or prouder.  So much thanks goes out to Beth Swan for the uber-professional design work , Dan King for the background music for the Gloucester at Dawn Chapter, Adam Bolansky and Sam Hartson’s footage on the Saturday Greasy Pole video.

I’ll be donating 5% of the sales to The Greasy Pole Rebuilding Fund.  Thanks to everyone who has ordered some.  I really think they are going to make perfect perfect no-brainer holiday gifts for people that love Gloucester.  With 21 chapters of Gloucester Love there’s something in there for everyone.

Watch the video to see The Bean unveil the shipment of DVD’s and us test out the first one out of the box!

Here it is, the order form click to get on the list-

Here is a low res version Beth Swan designed DVD jacket. Pretty snazzy don’t you think?


and here is the artwork for the DVD-

The magenta colors won’t be there, it’s only there for the art department when they press them.


I can’t help but think that this will be an easy peasy Christmas gift decision for people who love Gloucester and what we do here on GMG.

The goal was to make a DVD which you could show people and blow them away with stuff that they have never seen before. Especially cool are the mutant lobster and marine life videos on the larger screen.

As a Christmas or Hanukah present it’s a no-brainer. Small size, easy wrapping, totally unique, totally Gloucester, easy shipping, perfect price point- $20.

This will be the perfect gift to have a couple wrapped and in the front hall closet for when those people stop buy with a present for you but you didn’t think to get them one- you have a couple Good Morning Gloucester DVDs all wrapped up in the closet and ready to go!

No brainer, right?

They will cost $20 for 1 Buy 5 and get 1 free, buy 10 and get two free.

Huge thanks to Dan King for the background music for the DVD menu and The Joey C’s Gloucester at Dawn Slideshow, Adam Bolonsky and Sam Hartson’s Greasy Pole Footage and Beth Swan for Designing The DVD Artwork.

I’ll be donating 5% of the proceeds from the sale of this DVD to The Saint Peter’s Fiesta to rebuild the Greasy Pole.
