Tools, trinkets & antiquities

Published January 26, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

The shopkeeper at The Bead Store at Elisabeth’s Cottage graciously allowed me to take some photographs of items in her sidewalk display window: pocket watch, jeweler’s tools, compass and more. Like a brief step back in time. The shop is located at 619 Commercial Avenue, featuring “jewelry, furniture, antiques and gifts.”

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
