Shop ‘til you Drop Provincetown Style

December 2nd, 2014

People who love Provincetown adore a gift from here. These 02657 businesses are all quite different but carry the same level of ‘joie de vivre’ (love of life).

Enjoy these perfect gift ideas for the people on your list who love Provincetown!

Alice Brock Studio – Is she that Alice (?), you might think if you are a baby boomer who identified with Woody Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant. A self-taught artist, that very Alice creates lovely stylized prints and exquisite one-of-a-kind beach stones. Her website, http://www.alicebrock.com, is a delight and she is an email or a phone call away. 508.487.2127

Coffey Men: This great space owned by gifted clothier Scott Coffey includes a gorgeous line of original tee’s and belts. His grosgrain custom belts are perfect for resort wear ensembles, or for next year’s Tea Dance. Scott is a delightful host; his shop next to Joe’s is very social. Check out this website to shop, order and enjoy Scott’s wonderfully wry humor. 508.487.1303 http://scottcoffey.squarespace.com

Marc Jacobs: This international design company is an extraordinary donor to Provincetown institutions and causes through the largesse of gracious and elegant part-time resident Robert Duffy and Marc Jacobs himself. A maritime-themed buy are well heeled rain boots for $39.00, both classic and affordable. Jessica and the staff at the Provincetown store are happy to answer questions and set up delivery of your purchases by calling 508.487.0723. http://www.marcjacobs.com

Body Body: This shop is a top contender among the chic menswear apparel along Commercial Street. With a newly launched online store (so well done), their hot list of designers includes Citizens of Humanity and Postmarc. Check out the divine website for store favorites, including a sale along with this season’s picks. 508.487.9400 http://www.bodybodyptown.com

141 Bradford Natural Market: Provincetown residents Joe Frietas and Chris Getman have created a wonderful organic and whole foods experience at this Bradford Street location (with a summer outpost in the West End). A light and airy café with a juice bar and vegan/vegetarian hot lunch blends seamlessly with both on-line and in-store products. There is an order-ahead service for visitors and residents arriving in town, making for stocked cupboards and more time to play. 508.487.9784 http://www.bradfordnatural.com

Good Scents: The newly renovated grand dame of Provincetown’s skin, hair and beauty shops has an online store for ordering signature oils, shampoos, skin care, hair care and men’s grooming. Pasha of Perfume Raymond Treviño and staff will help you create lovely gift packages and, if in town, recommend some products just for you. In their FAQ section on the website are explanations of Good Scent’s extensive line of essential oils and glycerin-based soaps. 508.487.3393 https://www.goodscentsptown.com

Wired Puppy: A local institution, with a sister location on Boston’s Newbury Street, Wired Puppies, who love iconic java blends like “Hair of the Dog,” would be thrilled to get a pound of this organic, Kosher and ethically grown coffee. And, it isn’t just coffee; it’s local and global love, a haven for man’s best friend and available to order online. 508.487.0117 http://www.wiredpuppy.com
