And finally (back across town) is the newest of the new, in the smallest store of its kind (it's worth a visit just to see the place .... but please don't blink), Second Spring (photo coming). Once a "scale shack" for the loads of logs entering the mill site, the building (and its close surroundings) are now the site for the two industrious owners who showcase their own handcrafted, hand made items of all kinds. On one hanger may be a couple of aprons, on another kids clothes. But I guarantee they will be gone next time you are there and replaced by something new. "Second" does not mean second hand, and "Spring" does not mean open only in the early months of the year. But "Second Spring" together means some of the finest handmade products you will find.
And that should be the "newest of the new" at Port Gamble, joining several shops which have been here quite a bit longer. They would include:
The Dauntless Bookstore
The Tearoom at Port Gamble
Best Friends Antiques
Salon and Spa On Gamble Bay
Port Gamble Guest Houses
Gamble Bay Coffee
Yes, you could make a day of it here. You could make SEVERAL days of it here.
