There was a special camaraderie between my neighbors and fellow business owners that had blossomed over the past couple of years on that beautiful corner lot by the sea. As people drove up Lynn shore Drive and made their way into Swampscott, we were their first impression. Their introduction to this quaint community. The gateway to the North Shore.
Jayne and her family cared for and respected the building like it was part of their family. And Besides loving and sharing the same amazing view each day, my neighbors and I also shared a great passion for our businesses.
Jay and Debbie at Seaside Cafe had fixed up their little cafe so cute and cozy and they were always trying out new dishes. I will personally miss their lobster rolls and their clam chowder in a bread bowl! And Deb knows how I feel about her 7 layer bars. I was addicted.
At Peter's Tailoring I will certainly miss my three Italian ladies who are not only the best at their craft but could also whip up a mean expresso. No one works harder than they do.
Irma's window at J & I custom draperies always changed with the seasons and I will miss how beautifully she decorated it and her shop. She is a tremendous buisness woman and works hard at her craft.
What can I say about Jessica at Jessica's Nails except what a sweet, hard working woman with An American dream that literally went up in flames, not once, but twice. She lost her first business location in a fire up the street. Jessica not only lost her business, but her home upstairs. She moved here from Revere to be close to her business and make a better life for herself last summer.
