A Little "Nautical Gloucester" at The Brass Monkey

We love being in the heart of Downtown Gloucester, near the waterfront. While we have some popular brands carried in our store, like Tommy Bahama, Hobo Italian Leather Bags, Woolrich, Natural Life, Coco & Carmen (and more!), we also carry unique items that are Gloucester and East Coast specific.  At The Brass Monkey, you can find the popular "Gloucester Fishermen's Wives Cookbook", Gloucester mugs, tea towels and other items, and products with images of our native lobster and other sea life. Look around and you'll be able to choose some fabulous vintage nautical items, perfect from your home by the sea or if you live inland, a warm reminder of your time on our coast.

We love our nautical theme and our ties to Gloucester and Cape Ann, as we are right here in the heart of it. Recently, we stumbled upon this video made by John Theo, a local novelist (see www.JohnTheo.com) Cape Ann Museum, A walk through nautical history", take a peek!

Living by the Sea

When we live by the sea, we surround ourselves that remind us we are here. Living on Cape Ann, we are surrounded by ocean, on all sides, it seems. 

What's your favorite beach? What are your favorite nautical finds for your home that remind you of the days at the ocean? What nautical items are you looking for that would make your home or garden complete? 

Come see us here at The Brass Monkey, and explore!

In the meantime, plan your visit to one of our fabulous local beaches!
