No need to panic. Power Shop the West End of Gloucester Main Street. From Alexandra’s Bread down to the Cave there are a ton of shops brimming with stocking stuffers to real unique gifts. Power shop. Cheese counter at The Cave, do not fall for tasting every cheese. Just say, “Give me a half pound of six yummy cheeses. 15 seconds, grab a few flashy gold bottles of Presecco, some crackers, a cutting board, two minutes, tops. Alexandra’s just grab one of everything including sarcastic socks and a puppy covered apron.
Now Pastaio Via Corta (corner shared with Larsen’s Shoes) one might take some time checking out the olives behind the glass and what is on the shelves. Then “Medium container, six different olives you can reach” and meanwhile grab the Presecco that isn’t called Prosecco and the olive oil that you never heard of.
Hit a couple of bookstores, “Give me three new best sellers female author, murder mystery” 60 seconds a new record. Brought my own cloth bags and Christmas was done in 18 minutes tops.
Too much Presecco? I have never had a bottle go bad or even make it to New Year’s Eve. That’s another 18 minutes. No need to be Italian. I’m Scottish and do you think I am going to the Haggas Shop?
Do it today. Some of these shops might be closed on Monday.
But if you want to float my boat stop in at Cape Ann Electric Bikes and pick up one of these beautiful bikes.
