It’s a great day to shop downtown!

















It’s Black Friday and everyone else is “over the bridge” and “up the line” bumping elbows at the malls, but we locals can stay on the island with our wish lists. The pop-up shop(see related Times article) Present has an incredible selection of unique gifts.

Present is a seasonal art collective made up of fifteen local men and women offering a bevy of eclectic fine craft. Living, creating and recycling on Cape Ann are common themes reflected in the goods including bags made from reclaimed sweaters and recycled sailcloth. Look for jingle flounder, lovely wreaths, hand-knit hats, pottery, felted flowers and bowls, fish prints, and photographs inspired by local people and landscapes.

Delightfully unusual wares also include unique prints and collages, hand-dyed clothing printed with seaweed and other found materials, clever clothing and accessories for children, iron-pressed sandwich keepers, hand-knit wire jewelry, beautifully sewn doll clothes, and itty bitty jewels. Present is a great place to shop for pretty things and one-of-a kind gifts and ornaments.

Present is Karen Chapin, Amanda Cook, Jane Cunningham, Jessica Demarjian, Elizabeth Grammas, Frieda Grotjahn, Jill Josephson, Pam Lally, Sharon Lowe, Stephanie Mason Thibodeau, Camilla MacFadyen, Melanie Murray-Brown, Erin and Scott Place, and Mary Rhinelander.

You can visit the holiday pop-up shop at 271 Main Street, Gloucester from November 6th through December 24th, 2010.

Hours: Monday through Saturday 10-6, Sunday 12-5; extended evening hours on Thursday; also open 6-9 on Men’s and Ladies’ Nights

Thanks!!    —Sharon

BTW- You can get my Cape Ann calendars at Present, and for those of you who live out of town, you can order them here.

Sharon’s Online Marketplace

The calendars during the holiday season were a huge hit! (Thank you Amanda, Jane, and everyone who bought one!) I’m working on the 2011 calendars now to have them ready for mid-summer. If you have any thoughts on a particular subject that might be popuar, I’d love any suggestions.

You can still get the 2010 calendars here if you need a small host(ess) gift for those late Christmas parties!

Also I have an online marketplace where you can buy all kinds of items with my Cape Ann photos on them. There are prints, mugs, t-shirts, edibles, puzzles, etc. Lots of fun stuff and more to come! Check it out for gifts throughout the year.

Here are a few items you can purchase….

If you see a photo on my website that is not offered in the marketplace, just let me know and I’ll check on its availability.

Thanks so much for your continued support!              ———Sharon

Calendar Crazy!

Never did I think that these calendars would be so popular. Whenever I’m not working, I’m printing, cutting or assembling them. Right after the holidays, I’ll look for a more efficient way to do them for next year.

I’ve been sending them all over the country. If you want any of the three calendars, please order them ASAP. You can also get them at PRESENT and the Harbor Loop Gift Shop. Thanks!

Here’s the link to view the calendars.
