On The Cliffs

On the cliffs

I am on Martha’s Vineyard, where I have summered my entire life. One of my favorite spots to pick up little cotton summer dresses for under $50, tunics, summer scarves, straw market baskets, and flip-flops, is an itty-bitty shop in Aquinnah called On The Cliffs. The name is apt, as the shop literally sits at the top of the famed Gay Head cliffs.

Yesterday I picked up an adorable navy cotton dress with navy embroidery for a mere $30. Along with a new rope bracelet and a lobster roll (both can be bought right there as well), I am in full vacation mode.

  • Tell you what I think:
    I think it is unfortunate that you deleted my comment about using summer as a verb. You should have more spunk than that!

  • Summer has been used as a verb since the 15th century.

  • Margo – Not only are you wrong, but to come to someone’s blog and berate them is in really poor taste.
