Owning a small business isn’t easy and we realize that making a decision to close is never easy. We wish you well, Bridget!  Until we meet again!

    Rents are driving the little stores out of business.

    Sorry to see this go. I’ve purchased nice things there. Including a scali cap for my husband that got stolen from the grocery cart one day.

    John Hurley, it says you can get their items on FB and Amazon. Try that. Good Luck.

    I wanted to ask if anyone had a 1952 South Boston High School Yearbook that I could make a copy of the sports pages. My brother Thomas Taylor was an athlete during his high school years and I was doing some research on him. Thank you for your consideration, Michael Taylor

    I purchased a beautiful gold CROSS OF ST BRIGID there. We will miss this shop but our Irish/Southie Spirit
    will continue to live on in our Southie relatives for generations to come.
