Shop Tour: Weekend on Cape Cod

June 26, 2006

If you like the sand dunes and salty air, quaint little villages here and there…

Shop Tour: Weekend on Cape Cod
While vacationing on the Cape this summer, make sure to explore Mari Porcari’s lifestyle boutique, Weekend located at 217 Main Street in East Orleans near beautiful Nauset Beach. Located in a historic general store from in the 1800s, Weekend underwent an interior transformation 3 years ago when the store first opened. A fresh interior sporting gorgeous cork floors, sleek birch shelves, and cool summery hues of pale yellow, blue, and green, makes Weekend both inviting and serene.

Upon visiting this charming shop, a ‘mini’ well-edited version of a large department store like Saks or Nordstrom’s, you’ll find only the best in apparel, handbags, belts, accessories, jewelry, home goods, baby gifts and toys, personal care, furniture and books. Mari has an eye for good design, something that is very evident the moment you enter Weekend. With a plethora of gift shops on the Cape, I’m so excited to find a boutique devoid of oversized lobster bibs, plastic souvenirs, and beach themed tees. Weekend is a class act.
