The Magnolia Community Farmers Market is BACK and better than ever and OH How we missed you!!!!
Back on Lexington Ave, where we belong, the Farmers Market will be open weekly from 10am-1pm (closed the holiday weekends of July 4 and Labor Day).
Safety is still of our utmost concern. With state and local guidance lifted for outdoor venues, we will strive to make each market open and comfortable for outdoor shopping. Our Vendors’ and Farmers’ booths will be spread evenly down the street to make for ample space for distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the market as well. Masks will no longer be required, though we ask everyone to practice kindness and caution to keep each other safe.

First day of spring on Saturday

The weather is supposed to be nice on Saturday, take a walk down Lexington Avenue and come and visit me outside Arts Abound, 21 C Lexington Avenue, Magnolia, Gloucester, MA.  Come in and see the great handmade beautiful artwork, cards, glass wares, beach towels and jewelry.



Arts Abound is excited to announce we are now open for business! After three months of being closed due to the pandemic, our doors open again and we look forward to seeing you all. New products line the shelves, waiting for you to come visit. Check here for our hours and you can always set up an appointment beyond those times. And, we started selling local hand sanitizer which we all need!

WE NOW SELL LOCAL HAND SANITIZER From Ryan & Wood Gloucester-made Ryan & Wood hand sanitizer, paired with a hand-sewn mask or two, makes a wonderful Father’s Day gift. Ryan & Wood is a local distillery that temporarily converted their production to hand sanitizer to help folks stay safe during the pandemic. $40 as shown here with mask.


Father’s Day is June 21. Show your dad how much he means to you! It’s time to start thinking about gifts that would please the dads in your life, whether they are step dad, Boy Scout leader dad, the guy who treats you like a son, your father-in-law, or other. We have plenty of ideas for you including locally roasted Gloucester coffee, gorgeous mugs, cutting boards, hand-sewn BBQ aprons, and of course, baseball, hockey, and golf face masks!

Please stop by the shop or email us to order. You can also schedule a FaceTime session.

Magnolia Street Fair

Lexington Avenue in Magnolia

The Magnolia Historical Society asked me to take some photos of a building that was being renovated.  The new Landlord, J. Stratton Moore,of Manchester, MA, graciously allowed me to take some photos.  As the workers were taking down sheet rock, they found these amazing sites that had been covered up over the years.  Also what was found was a hidden safe in the wall.

Information will be available for viewing once the MHS has established the Magnolia Historical Museum and Cultural Center at the Blynman School.
