Savoir Faire Home

While Savoir Faire Home specializes in sophisticated home styling, the shop is certainly not limited to furniture. Mer Sea Soaps, a variety of French candles, dishes and other housewares, and even handmade pottery and linens all adorn the shelves of Savoir Faire, which feels more like a cozy and impeccably designed home than a gift shop. Experienced staff are always on hand to give design advice or recommend the coolest new pieces to spruce up a room.

Sweetwater Trading Company

The new Marblehead location of this perennial North Shore favorite embodies the local nautical flavor in a cozy shop full of New England–made maritime gifts. Beach bags printed with vintage local maps, driftwood photo frames, and Dune jewelry with sand from the nearby Devereux Beach capture the spirit of Marblehead, and keepsakes from Mariposa bring high style to the seaside town. Customers can also sport Marblehead pride with totes embroidered with the local zip code.
