We know there’s Snow Scheduled for Saturday, so please be reminded of our policy which is…Rain, Snow or Shine! The auction is on. We’ll ONLY cancel if the roads are closed, in which case, the extreme weather date is Sunday, 1/19/2020 – same time.
Obviously we are late out of the gate on pictures and descriptions for this auction. This is due to the fact that we just had our First Vintage Flea Market last Sunday! If you were there, you know it was a huge success and extremely well attended! Thank You.

However, this means we’re a bit behind in our auction promotion! This is the reason you don’t see pics or a detailed item description in this email. BUT just know that we’ll have our usual 200+ lots of vintage items, antiques, furniture, art, coins jewelry and much more!

If time permits, we may have a more complete listing available by the time our reminder email goes out on Saturday morning.

Get To the Old Sloop Fair Early or Get Left Behind

OldSloopFair-RummageSale-for-gmgAnyone who has spent time looking for bargains should know about the Old Sloop Fair at the First Congregational Church in Rockport. The Old Sloop Fair takes place over three weekends. It is a marathon, not a sprint, and the first leg of this Rummage Sale to end all Rummage Sales takes place this coming Saturday. With a wealth of hand-knitted items, baked goods and household linens, not to mention enough clothing to cover all those semi-naked people loitering on Front Beach, the Old Sloop Fair is not to be missed.

Here is a slightly less hyperbolic description from one of the organizers:

The Old Sloop Fair at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School Street, will span three July weekends this year.  The Fair will begin with the Rummage Sale on Saturday, July 9 from 9:00AM to 2:00PM.  The Rummage Sale offers gently-used women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, bed linens, luggage, handbags, and much more.  The Fair will continue with the traditional events — Silent Auction, White Elephants, Art Mart, Jewelry, Book Nook, Handknits, Ken’s Collection, Bake Table, and Snack Bar — on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16, and conclude with a Giant Yard Sale on Saturday, July 23.  For more information, visit, send email to, or call 978-309-9667.

The No Brainer of All No-Brainer Groupons The Thomas E. Lannon

Now Just last week I was telling you that the number one thing I would tell anyone that they had to do on a 70 degree plus day in G Town was to go for a sail on the Lannon, and lo and behold BAM!  A groupon for half off.  These don’t last long and usually they shut it down half way through the day because they only release so many to groupon.  Don’t be a dope, get yours for 45% off now!

The Schooner Thomas E Lannon Hauled Out At Rose’s 4:45 AM 4/19/12

Posted on April 22, 2012 by Joey C

It’s almost that time of year when all the really cool stuff around happens.  At the Top of my list for anyone coming into town on a nice day is a sail aboard the Thomas E Lannon.  Bottom line if a tourist had one thing to do and only one thing I’d tell them on a nice day to take a cruise aboard what I consider to be the most beautiful ship in the harbor.

Not only is the ship beautiful, but you also get to experience the warm genuine hospitality of some of the finest representatives our city has to offer The Ellis family. Captain Tom, his wife and sons are just the nicest most sincere, fun loving people you’d ever want to meet.

There is hospitality that is, you know, kinda forced, which in my book is fine because in the absence of the warm fuzzy true genuine friendliness I’ll take a forced friendliness over bad or rude service any day.  But from the minute you enter the booking office and you meet Kay you realize there is nothing phony about the Schooner Lannon’s operation.  They just happen to be really good at what they do, they love it and they provide a great experience genuinely and naturally- the best of all worlds!

This is not to say there aren’t a bunch of other very cool things to do around town like whale watches, deep sea fishing, Visiting The cape Ann Museum or The Heritage Center, coffee at one of our great coffee shops, breakfast at our many awesome breakfast joints, ect, ect.  I’m just saying, you give me a sunny 70 degree day and I have folks in from out of town, A guaranteed great time is to be had aboard The Thomas E Lannon.

Here are some early morning photos I took of her on the blocks at rose’s Marine where she is being sanded down and getting freshened up for the fun season ahead!

We will be having our GMG Folly Cove Rum and Old Cuban Cigar Co cruise this summer, as soon as Kay and I lock down the dates I’ll let y’all know.

PASSPORT To Your Tummy!!!!

Opened in 1995, Passports continues to be a local and visitor favorite, specializing in creative cuisine from around the world. Menu features include, popovers to start, local seafood, steaks, lamb chops, and international specialties. Passports is known for its fine dining in a casual atmosphere, along with the biggest selection of beer & wine on Cape Ann. I must say that I had the BEST Rueben Sandwich there ( I am not sure it is still on the menu, but it was fantastic!) Mondays deal of the day is a FREE appetizer at Passports!! Come on down and say hello to Eric ( he is the big boss ).









Udine4less_LOGO2So I Wasn’t sure if I was going to much of anything today, seeing how I was up late last night tossing and turning after watching the Patriots somehow give that game away last night to the Colts. I am not sure how many of you watched the game till the end, but WHAT THE BLEEP HAPPENED!!!!!! Ok, had to get that out of my system.

Anyway – There is a new restaurant in town called Roma Pizza and Subs down on the Boulevard. There has been a few restaurants in this spot the last couple of years, but I think that this one has a chance to stick around for awhile. They have a great menu as well as daily specials and soup of the day. The two owners are Pat and Ray, and they seem to fit right in. They have a Family deal that will feed the whole family, and the place is spotless. I am attaching a few deals so that you can give them a try. ENJOY!!!
