August 2013

As August comes to end, like many, I am filled with mixed emotions. Sad that the crazy days of Summer are almost over, but glad to have life go back to normal. Well as normal as possible I suppose. Play What a Summer it was. Between two kids and two On Point Blogs a week […]

If you’ve been to the Chilmark Flea, the Featherstone Flea, the Oak Bluffs’ Open Market, Citrine, or Slip 77 this year, most likely you have seen the beautiful jewelry of MV Treasures.

Part flea market, part farmer’s market with an Oak Bluffs twist, the Oak Bluffs Open Market is a fun place […]

On Martha’s Vineyard we may not have drive-thrus but we do have food trucks. And, some of these trucks have some of the best eats on the Island. When I saw two new trucks this season, I thought it was time to do a little research, which basically gives me a reason to eat something […]
