The Shop That Was June 12, 2017

2017_06_11_16_44_01.pdf000 vintage postcard

Summer is on its way.  This is the art supplies and clothing shop where I lived and worked in the summer of 1957.  I was the live-in cook and shop assistant. It was located in Perkins Cove and the fishermen stored their dories underneath my room – there to the left of the structure.  I had only to cross the street to walk the Marginal Way to the beach every morning.  What a golden summer!

But this was a long time ago.  The owners eventually sold the shop and it was transformed into Barnacle Billy’s – a very popular restaurant.  Nevertheless I have my treasured memories of the Brush & Needle Studio, established in 1917, the oldest Gift Shop in Ogunquit.
