Get Your Cape On                                                                                    

We're dreaming of summer vacation, long lazy days with nothing to do. We want to get there and have everything we need to make the space our own. 

We don't want to worry about shopping, vacation should be a worry-free zone. So, we're shopping here to cozy up there.  These are the resources we'returning to...

Betty's pick

This photo is a 1965 classic- but you can have a 2010 version of your very own. We love Electra, but Gary Fischer and Trek both carry beautiful versions sure to become beach cruiser heirlooms. Tell your grandchildren it's the one you used to ride. Order online and have it delivered right to your porch. Or find them in locally at Cohasset Cycle, The Bicycle Link, EMS or REI.
