Playful Shopping

Share this Page


Cambridge was historically an “inland” town, untouched by rail access, so our downtown was bustling with shops filled with everything needed for self-sufficient 19th century living. Today, you’ll stroll through those same shops to find modern boutiques, artisan wares, pottery, jewelry and creative finds of all sorts. Whether boutique or bridal is your style, you’ll find plenty of playful options. Stop into The Garment Shop to see the latest fashion trends. A Box of Fluffys offers delectable lingerie and accessories to make your trip memorable. Katy’s Corner offers a wide array of imported treasures, wine and candy. Village Pharmacy and Gifts is the perfect spot to pick up a Cambridge souvenir or gift, or take home a piece of pottery from Rowe Pottery. The Shops at 214 Main (our former Wagon Factory) offer shopping delights from Cambridge Furniture Traders, Sprout Artisan Marketplace and Avid Gardener. Looking for a special gift or memento from your visit? Voyagers Jewelry has specialized jewelry for bike, lake and animal lovers.

Gather your girlfriends for special shopping hours and giveaways benefitting a local charity at our bi-annual “Girls Night Out” each April and October and catch all the deals at Maxwell Street Days each August. Whether you are shopping for yourself or selecting the perfect gift, you’ll find plenty to discover by strolling the streets of Cambridge.
