Scituate’s abundant natural resources foster the desire to create original art, as evidenced by the many and varied hand crafted items available in our shops. From shells to stitches, beach sand creations  to imaginative cuisine, our shopkeepers offer goods and services to please the home, the palate, and for gift-giving.

You may have developed a special art form when home bound this past year, producing an original item that brought satisfaction and that you cherish. For inspiration and for pleasure take a little excursion through our three villages, Greenbush, North Scituate and Scituate Harbor.  Visit shops where goods and services will spark your imagination. Stop by Staci’s Stitches and Skeins, where knitting and crocheting are taught.  While you’re in North Scituate take in the opportunities there for sewing at The Makery.  Say hello to Rachael at The Collective Co., where women are treated to the singular peace of working in their own space with unparalleled accommodations.  Drive to Greenbush to try the latest brew at Untold Brewery, view the creative wooden pieces made by hand at Birch Barn, taste the original and inventive pizza offered at C.P.’s Wood Fired Pizza and visit Kjeld Mahoney Photography. Scituate Harbor offers the work of artisans such as those displayed in Silverstorm, Joye, Front Street Art Gallery, Flowers and Festivities and others.

These shops are but a few of the opportunities to cultivate ornamental and sometimes eclectic pieces of art for the eyes, for inspiration, for entertaining, for food preparation and for gifting.  The Scituate Visitors Center is happy to highlight these and the many other shops, stores and services.

Pure fun: First Friday, children’s Fourth of July parade in Minot, classic cars on display on Thursday nights at the Scituate Community Center, concerts in the gazebo on Cole Parkway every Thursday evening (bring your own chair), Friday night Fish Fry at Harbor Methodist Church, and ice cream, ice cream, ice cream at Nona’s and Dribbles. Next week: the K of C Carnival!!!

See you around Town…
