Shopping on Main Street in Gloucester is always interesting, but visiting Pop Gallery is extra-special. They sell an eclectic and well-curated mix of clothing, jewelry, accessories and home goods that emphasize artisanship, style and more than a touch of irreverence and snark.
Pop’s emphasis is on FUN, and the store's atmosphere absolutely reflects this. Pop’s owner, Peggy Russell (center) along with style divas Vignette-Noelle Lamott (left)and Kathy Irwin (right), have stuffed the shop to the gills with funky and unique treasures. They even have their own custom-designed clothing, with new designs appearing often.
And while Pop Gallery is a fashionista haven, there is a whole section of the shop devoted to their men’s collection called Buoy. Buoy is a pop up store within POP Gallery that even has it’s own tagline: BUOYS WILL BE BUOYS.
Because their stock fluctuates so much, they do not keep an e-commerce site that reflects their inventory, but instead they leverage social media (Instagram and Facebook) to provide updates on what’s new in the store. For those who aren't local or can't make it into the shop, their "Pop-to-Go" service allows shoppers to email the store and request that items seen on their social media sites be shipped.
During the summer, Pop Gallery is open 11-5 during the week with extended hours on Friday (til 8 p.m.). Saturday they're open 10-8 and while many Main Street places are closed on Sundays, Pop is open all day, from 10-5.
Pop Gallery also never misses a Main Street community or social event. So at the next Main Street Block Party, you can grab a drink at Pop and hang with the POP team, where they’ll be open for late night shopping till 11 pm.
