Let's Go Shopping Hingham Style

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you are enjoying your week.  I just got back from my walk and the weather is positively magnificent.  It is so much easier to get my rear end moving when the weather is great and I look forward to listening to a very good book.  

Speaking of books, I am off to a Supper with the Authors tonight.  I have not read the books, so I hope that there will not be a quiz.  I'll just keep my head down just like I did for four years in college.

Today, I am highlighting two shops in one of my favorite towns, Hingham.  You can find the past posts here and here.

Hingham's movie theater looks like it could be the star of a movie!

It is also the home of the original Talbots.

One of my favorite stores in town is La Petite Maison. I have written about it here, here, and here.  This is my fourth post - I wasn't kidding when I told you I adore this store.

I stopped in about 6 weeks ago to do my monthly inventory and snapped some pics.

There is always a beautiful table set.

I have an addiction to cute totes.
Sista gave me one just like this one.

If you need a cute baby gift, this store has plenty.

Gorgeous linens, as well. 

Wouldn't this make a darling hostess gift?

And these Hermes prints are so cute.
Sorry about the glare.

This lovely lady is Nan and she owns La Petite Maison.
If you are in the area, stop in and take in the beauty of this darling shop.

Right down the street from La Petite Maison is another favorite shop of mine called Waterhouse.  Not only is the store filled with beautiful accessories and antiques, but the website is also impressive. 

I own a copy of Charlotte Moss Entertains and every page is more beautiful than the next.  

Waterhouse has a great selection of blue and white accessories.

Gorgeous artwork, as well.

Stunning jewelry.

Waterhouse also has a great selection of gifts.

As a matter of fact, I treated myself to three of these sweet planters for my kitchen.

Amber is the owner of Waterhouse.  I ended up spending over an hour with her.  It turns out that she used to live in my neighborhood.  Not only does Amber have exquisite taste, but she also bubbles with personality. 

If you find yourself anywhere near the South Shore of Boston, I highly recommend a visit to Hingham, the epitome of a charming New England town. 

Until next time...
