Over the last year I have been researching and writing a historic seafood cookbook, which, unfortunately will not be ready in time for Christmas. It is by far the biggest writing project I’ve ever attempted and contains hundreds of recipes going back hundreds of years.
While the book is being finalized, I have also been working on a new website dedicated to seafood information as a tie-in. As part of the research process for the book (From Head to Tale) I have been compiling lots of vintage seafood illustrations and advertisements, which I’ve started to turn into a line of gifts and apparel over at my new store: Vintage Seafood. If you get a chance this busy holiday season, check out my new projects and let me know what you think.
It’s that time of year again, the shipyard is getting ready for a long winter’s nap. But we will be open for another 4 weekends in order for you to get some last minute gifts for the “boat nerds” in your life. From now until Christmas, most items* in the Museum gift shop are discounted 10%. In addition to this, Museum members can take an additional 10% discount.
Come by on weekends from now until December 21 to check out our selection of home and decorative items, hard to find books, nautical items, shirts and hats, and Children’s books and toys. The Museum store is THE PLACE to think of for your “just perfect” gifts as well as stocking stuffers.
We are open Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from now through Sunday December 21.
