Years ago, the Hardware Store was the only store you would find open on Main Street in the middle of January – this week there were a bevy of options, dressed up with Christmas decorations and filled with gift galore.

We stopped in 20-Main and Backwater for mittens, cozy sweaters and the perfect winter hat – a bit of Patagonia and gifts which I didn’t realize I was looking for – luckily they had two.  The car was soon full, the wallet empty – and we didn’t even have to brave the (gasp) crowded malls…

  • 20-Main (one for you, two for me…)
  • Backwater Trading (the most creative, entertaining gifts alongside the practical elements: Patagonia, Toms, Woolrich, Pendleton)
  • Summer Shades (because my father always breaks a pair of sunglasses in Tortola)
  • In the Pink (summer style all year round)
  • Vineyard Vines (#edsftg)
  • Zambezi (a pop-up shop, gifts that give back)
  • KatyDid (Roberta Roller Rabbit – the softest pajamas)
