Here’s Micah Dean who makes his own fishing lures and bowls in his wood turning shed in Magnolia. Micah will be at the Cape Ann Farmers Market tonight showcasing his wares. Look for my video interview with Micah at 3pm
At Alexandra’s Bread not only do they sell these cool bags made of oilcloth, but they sell rolls of vibrantly designed oilcloth for you to make your own things with. Placemats, table cloths, drawer liners- there are many uses.
Every time I go into Alexandra’s bread I’m astounded by all the cool stuff in there. It’s not just bread either. I hesitate to say that Alexandra’s talents are almost wasted in this space because I’d hate to see her go, but really she ought to be a buyer for a huge store. She has assembled the coolest collections of things like Arley Pett’s 1899 Gloucester Map Coasters.
Look for the Donna Marchant Video Interview at 4PM
Donna explains how the artist cooperative at Local Colors is run and takes us through some of her beautiful work.
If you were born in Gloucester you remember Twin Lights Soda. You remember those heavy glass soda bottles and you remember the crates that they used to put the heavy glass bottles into. You remember the different cool flavors like birch beer, and cream soda.
Well Alexandra’s Bread exclusively carries Twin Light T Shirts. She had them made up with permission from the bottler. For a little bit of nostalgia, cruise on down to Alexandra’s Bread, grab a cobble or six and check out all teh cool stuff on the walls for sale.
Yesterday I popped into Alexandra’s Bread to grab some cobbles for my girls. You should see Snoop Maddie Mad tear through a cobble, she loves em!
But they always have some funky cool stuff for sale and Alexandra changes up the product mix all the time.
Here are some bags made from oil cloth. There were also place mats, baby bibs and other items made from oil cloth.
Is there some kind of knitting revolution going on? Between these hand spun yarns at Present on Pleasant Street, Coveted Yarns on East Main Street, and Kat Valentine’s knitting blog I feel like there is some devious secret knitters plot brewing. Be aware people, they’re all around us these knitters!
