If it’s Black Friday, shopping locally is on my mind. Happily, my gal Pama’s shop Moonvine will be open for her second Christmas season on Harrison Street in Easton, Maryland across from the Tidewater Inn. And like last year, I plan to do some of my Christmas shopping here.

While visiting and gathering decorations for the Moroccan themed Christmas tree for Talbot Hospice last week, I took a massive amount of pictures so I could show you the magnitude of beautiful that is Moonvine. You should all be so lucky to have this sort of shop in your town. And if you live here, stop by and tell her I sent you.

Pama’s first love is Mermaids and they are everywhere.

She loves fairies too and you’ll find them tucked in every niche and adorning some lovely cards too.

Her mother Karen is a very talented artist and crafter and her work is everywhere you look.

The mosaic pieces done with vintage bits are fascinating and would be stars in a minimalistic house.

And the antiques strewn about the shop are also wonderful and many would make a styled shelf memorable.

Pama is an amazing floral designer and there are beautiful florals everywhere.

She also loves quality homemade soaps and there are more than a few lovely ones to choose from.

I absolutely flipped over the library collection candles with literary names like Jane Austin and Mark Twain packaged in copper tins, they are amazing smelling too. I detest Yankee candles and while I love love love Votivo, these are really nice.

Christmas ornaments are also a one gift hit and she’s got some lovely ones. Charming Little sea creatures and mermaids dangle everywhere.

You can even take a little Eastern Shore of Maryland with you with these amazingly real crabs and cute handmade oyster shell ornaments.

Plus … there’s the jewelry. Last year there was some fun pieces and this year, there’s plenty more. An entire case of vintage jewelry takes up one corner of the shop. And Fiona got to play with some dress up quality necklaces like she likes to do while I ran around and took my pictures.

Honestly, I was just in there and I could spend another uninterrupted hour fondling and smelling everything in the shop. A day trip here to Easton for a wander around and a nice lunch sounds like great fun before or after Christmas. Charm oozes from the cracks in the brick sidewalks here in Easton and Pama’s store is a jewel in its crown.

My post on Moonvine from July 2013 is here.

Moonvine is located at 21 A North Harrison Street in Easton, Maryland.
