One Ocean, One Love Shop

This past weekend, we had the great pleasure of attending the grand opening of One Ocean, One Love Shop in Rockport, Mass.

One Ocean One Love ShopOne Ocean Arts, the brainchild of our super-talented and artistic niece Jamie, is a retail shop in the heart of Bearskin Neck in Rockport. For those of you who do not know about Rockport, it is an iconic little seaside town about 50 minutes north of Boston, most famous for its “Motif #1” fishing shack.

Rockport Motif #1The entire downtown, including the enclave know as Bearskin Neck is dotted with art galleries, retail shops, ice cream parlors and candy shops with a spectacular ocean view-perfect for a Sunday summer stroll. A year ago, Jamie started her One Ocean Arts Etsy shop featuring sea-inspired block-printed clothing and accessories, then expanded to her website, One Ocean Arts, then offering her wares at local craft fairs and events. With the incredibly positive response (and repeat customers!) opening the shop with her business partner Erin

Jamie and Erin One Ocean Artswas the next step in spreading their “Once Ocean, One Love” mantra.
