Grand Opening of Mary Rose Vintage Designs on Main Street


Hi Joey-

I think people may be interested in learning about a beautiful and interesting new shop named Mary Rose Vintage Design,located at 269 Main Street in Gloucester.

My son Evan ( his pictures) and I completely enjoyed ourselves at the grand opening this past Sunday.

Just step through the front door and you will instantly feel just how lovely the owner, Jackie Colussi (pictured here) is by the warmth and heart she has put into the design of her shop.

You will find that she certainly has a talent for finding unique objects with distinctive character.

Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Gauthier Gallery Grand Opening

Last Sunday, I stopped by the Gauthier Gallery grand opening on Main Street.

I had visited (and posted about) the Gauthier Gallery before, so it was nice to see how things have been coming together.  Most of the artists involved were there:

There is a great selection of art there right now! Here are some sample shots:

It’s not just paintings; there are elaborately decorated boxes…

Painted wooden trunks…

… and colorful scarfs:

Elizabeth Gauthier has started a new activity at her gallery: painting parties!  From her website:

The-Painting-Party offers an upbeat evening of painting and socializing for both the artistic and the not so artistically inclined. You will be guided through step by step instructions by an accomplished art instructor. It’s fun and totally stress free.

And by the end of the night you will be amazed at the work of art that YOU created. You will go home with a painting that is uniquely yours – and perhaps a new found talent you’ll want to nurture!

She has a schedule on her website.

G33K Grand Opening Week sales on until Sunday

If you have ever wanted to make a customized tee-shirt, now is the time!  During the G33K store (130 Main St.) grand opening week, printing a custom design only costs $10 (plus the cost of the shirt), with no cost for setting up the design. You can bring in your own graphic or work with Allen to have him come up with the design you need using stock images. He prints them onto the shirts right there in the store, as I illustrated in an earlier post.

Also, if you want to play some video games but can’t afford an X-Box, you can go to the gaming room and play with their machines, for just $3 an hour discount price during the Grand opening.

If you want a funny tee-shirt but don’t feel like making up your own, the store has quite a stock of shirts with funny images and slogans:

There are also graphic novels, including a series of adaptations of Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” novels (which I am just starting to read – the novels, that is; the graphic novels will probably come later…).


There are also skateboards and related paraphernalia:

(Note the awesome pickle-riding-fire-breathing-rainbow-jumping liger shirt on the left in the photo above! I now have one of those without the text advertisement – thanks, Allen!) They also sell gaming supplies and other related items.  Quite a variety, really!

Lastly, if he’s not busy, you can chat with the owner, Allen, who is a really nice guy!  We were discussing scifi and fantasy novels as I took these photos.

You can visit them on Facebook for more details.

The Cave, “Cheese Chocolate and Wine” – grand opening this week!

Remember The Cave,  “Purveyors of Cheese, Chocolate, and Wine”, soon to open at 44 Main Street in Gloucester, covered in this post last month?  They will be having their grand opening on the evening Thursday, June 21, from 5 to 7PM.

I met the proprietor, Laura Cramer at Bodin’s Historic Photo and Fine Art last week at the Dad’s Night Out event. I got a nice photo of Fred and Laura together – but I didn’t notice that I didn’t have a memory card in my camera…  So, you’ll just have to use your imagination.

She had brought along a platter of delicious cheese, crackers and olives:

Since people were a bit slow to come into the store, she took the platter outside to tempt passers-by:

The cheese was really delicious, and Laura really knows her business; she explained the origin and characteristics of each cheese, which she had obviously chosen with care.  Check out the store’s grand opening this Thursday! And don’t miss those evening events at Bodin’s Historic Photo. You’re bound to find interesting people and good food, not to mention Fred’s fascinating photos, paintings by local artists, and more.

 (Gloucester, MA) – Cape Ann Brewing Company, an award-winning, family-owned, micro-brewery and the home of Fisherman’s Brew, in the heart of downtown Gloucester, announced today the opening of its highly anticipated Brewpub.

 The Brewpub, features the brewery’s award-winning craft beers brewed onsite, in a unique community gathering room featuring a bar shaped like the port side of a ship. Long, German-style wooden tables and a sitting area with several rocking chairs create a mellow, laid back atmosphere unlike anything else in the Cape Ann community. Classic board games, books, magazines, newspapers and bar games are available for leisurely enjoyment. Local artist renderings adorn the wood-paneled walls and the large picture windows look out onto St. Peter’s Square where the famed St. Peter’s Fiesta is held each June.

 Cape Ann Brewing Company was founded in 2004. Head brewer and co-founder Jeremy Goldberg began his sojourn into professional brewing as a home-brewer and broker on Wall Street. After September 11, 2001, looking for a change Goldberg embarked upon a 38 brewery 40 day micro-brewery cross-country tour with a some  of friends to film the documentary, American Beer. Upon return, Goldberg knew that the brewing industry was his future and 6 months later, along with his father Michael Goldberg and his brother in law, had begun preparation for the opening of the Cape Ann Brewing Company. In May of 2004 Cape Ann Brewing released it’s Fisherman’s Brew and have grown to distribute it’s beer in 9 states from Maine to Virginia.

 “My family and I are immensely proud of the brews we produce and are delighted to be able to serve our customers on premise,” said Jeremy Goldberg, Head Brewer and co-founder of Cape Ann Brewing Company. “It was my father’s and my dream to start a micro-brewery together. Our Brewpub is family-friendly and not the typical watering hole. We don’t serve liquor at all, and only serve the beer is made right here.”

 The Brewpub will also feature non-alcoholic beverages and pizza from Panorama Pizza in Gloucester. The menu will soon expand to include offerings from several local businesses including Panorama Pizza, Ned’s Groceria, and Sasquatch Smoked Fish, as well as an assortment of bar snacks. 

 Cape Ann Brewing brews a variety of craft beers at the brewery –
