This new vintage store on Main Street has already gotten some GMG love, but my series on second-hand stores on this side of the bridge would be incomplete if I were not to cover it too!
Mary Rose Vintage Design (269 Main Street) opened this summer. Hours are Tue – Sun: 10:30 am – 5:30 pm. It doesn’t have a big sign our front yet, but it is located roughly across the street from Sequined Fan and Pearls, and has a chalkboard sign out front on the sidewalk:
Jackie, the owner (who happens to be from Australia), has a great sense of design and a distinctive aesthetic that you perceive as soon as you walk in the store. Besides having an interesting assortment of vintage items, she has them arranged in little vignettes, often featuring “mildly creepy baby dolls”. Jackie’s friend Zach helps out in the store, and shows up in one of the photos below:
Main Street in Gloucester really should be known as a destination for second-hand and vintage stores!
