Swing by Barbara Koen’s Dress Code when you get a chance, she always has some interesting things in her funky ass shop.
As residents of the great city of Gloucester, we must impress again how much shopping, eating, banking and enjoying our local business establishments means.
If you shop at a chain store and you are short $1, the clerk cannot help you out.
Shopping at a local store, you can come back with the dollar.
If you cannot get a purchase in your car and the landscaping store is going your way with another delivery, they put will bring it to you. The banking establishments will call you if you have left your “Deposit Only Stamp” in the bank. Our wonderful eating establishments will make sure if you are allergic to something, it will not be served.
Again, going local is not just a saying; it is real and keeps our community strong. Thank you.

The Dress Code
After finishing up our coffee and hot chocolate and cleaning up a nasty hot chocolate incident at The Lone Gull we headed up to Barbara Koen’s Dress Code.
I dig popping in there if for nothing else but to catch some of that good karma from Barbara and the girls who work there. Always a fun experience and you never know if you’ll find a hidden gem.
Right now there are a bunch of brand new TUMI bags selling for 1/5 or so of their original prices. If you are a traveller you will recognize TUMI as the top brand in luggage. These bags were smaller messenger style and laptop bags but all brand new and pretty bad-ass. I’ve been having an internal debate about buying one for several months now.
Here’s the Bean and I taking a silly picture in the overhead curvy mirror-
Barbara Koen grows tomatas downtown in front of her her shop The Dress Code. This year’s crop looks pretty hearty.
Donna stayed til the very end and was picking up trash through out the Block Party. What a good egg.
This in from Barbara Koen at the Dress Code:
“Won’t you marry me Bill?” Wedding Gown Blow Out on Saturday March 14th. We have forty sample gowns only worn in the shop they came from.
Who knows? You may find your ideal wedding dress right here in Gloucester. So come and support your local economy.
Peace to all.
Barbara and the Dress Code staff
There are people that are asking how they can help if they missed the Gloucester Guerilla Art Project.
You could make checks out to The MR Children Fund Attn Amy Mitchel and send it to
160 Main Street in Gloucester, Massachusetts. 01930
At the end of the GGAP event we had 12 Tshirts left. They are at The Dress Code Downtown Gloucester. You could also buy one of the few remaining Good Morning Gloucester T Shirts there. 100% of the money you spend to purchase a t shirt goes to the Matteo Russo Children Fund.
The Dress Code is located at 159 Main Street Gloucester.
We had a lot of fun and raised money for a great cause. People turned out and I’m proud to say that GGAP II was the first sell-out at Cape Ann Community Cinema. We raised $2217. which will be deposited by the end of the week to The MR Children fund. There are still 12 t shirts left which can be purchased at The Dress Code downtown and 100% of that money will be added into the total when they are sold. Also Rob Newton will be donating a portion of the proceeds from a show this week (details to follow) into the pot.
Thanks to a generous donation from Barbara Koen from The Dress Code shop downtown we are able to double the amount of t shirts that will be available for purchase. 100% of the money raised from the sale of these shirts will go to the family of Matteo Russo.
This just in from Dian-
TONIGHT’S INCREDIBLE SHOW AT PASSIM IN CAMBRIDGE….
If y’all think of it we will have a truck from Cape Ann Food Pantry up by CVS looking for dry and canned goods to feed needy families. Barbara Koen told me just the other day that the most selfish thing you can do for yourself is to give to others because you get so much more back in good juju. Let’s all pitch in and help feed some folks that could use the help this winter.
