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!
