If I were smart, I’d sell “06880”-themed stuff on “06880.”
But I’m not. So whenever anyone asks where they can buy something that screams “Westport,” I send ’em to the Westport Historical Society (books, tote bags, note cards).
Or Joey’s by the Shore (hoodies, towels, beach stuff).
Now there’s another option. Mersene — the spectacularly creative, super-friendly and amazingly wonderful owner of Indulge by Mersene, on Railroad Place across from the train station — has added a number of local items to her eclectic, intriguing and ever-changing stock of unique finds.
Some of them say “Westport.” Others (even better!) actually show “06880.”
Mersene has a wonderful eye, not only for what looks good but how to present it. (Check out her gift baskets!) Her Westport merchandise is fun and funky. No kitsch or schlock at all.
She’ll ship anywhere. But if you live nearby — or are just traveling through — Mersene and her store really should be seen in person.
She puts the “oh!” in “06880.”
