Hi guys,

I’d like to give a shoutout to Gloucester Rental Center.  Go there if you need something for your Party, or Equipment & Tools.  In order to refinish my deck I rented a monster orbital sander that worked wonders.  It did exactly what I needed.  And when I decided I needed a nail gun, it was a quick trip to rent that too!  Great staff.  They made it easy and flexible.  If you are a homeowner you should be aware of this place.  Plenty of times I have hesitated on a project because it is impossible to have all the tools, never thinking I could easily rent them.  Check them out.  I’m glad they are there.

Did you want the names of penny candy stores?

My mother remembered Yankee General Store (Selma Bell) and I remember Bertha’s and Critinans on Bass Ave (also called Carl’s)


Love GMG!

Hi Joey,  When I was a kid growing up in Gloucester in the 40’s we got our penny candy from Higgins store on the corner of Smith St by St Ann’s church I know they renamed the church but to me it’s still St Ann’s. Thanks for all the memories you bring up everyday…Grace Duncan
