This popular coffeehouse teems with a motley mix of crunchy artists and trendy young professionals. Salem’s endearing boho vibe is captured through the focus on visual and performance art, while local bands and singer-songwriters play [throughout the week]. And there’s pure art in the food, which focuses on a wholesome, veggie-friendly assortment of soups, sandwiches and – most delightful of all – an expansive crepe menu of sweet and savory fillings.

Old fashioned candy, chocolate, fudge and candles. In 19th-century Salem, Massachusetts, no afternoon tea was complete without Gibralters. The first commercially made candies in America, still satisfy your sweet tooth today. The candy is also mentioned in historic documents and the 19th-century novel The House of the Seven Gables. Blackjacks candies are all made by hand just the way they were back in the 1800’s, using the original recipe. Lots of candy, fudge and chocolates too.

Last Minute Places to Make a Costume Inexpensively
THE MAGIC PARLOR This place is pretty much 1/2 witchy and new age supplies and 1/2 gag gifts, odds and ends and random bits. In the first section of the store to the right when you enter though they have a large collection of masks, hats and more. If you wanted to grab an accessory or two or possibly a masquerade mask for the night, this would be a good place to check out. WYNOTT’S WANDS AND REMEMBER SALEM These two shops are located right next to one another and if you wanted to throw together a wizard or witch outfit, these are your go-tos. Wynott’s is a wand shop and Remember Salem carries tons of Harry Potter gifts and accessories. Go from one to the next to dress yourself as a Quiddich player from your favorite house or as a student of Hogwarts. THE ARMY BARRACKS The Army Barracks is at the top of Essex and Washington, on the corner and they have tons of randoms. You could consider an outfit of army fatigues, or a hat and goggles paired with a scientist’s jacket. They have all different accessories and you could probably pull something together from their racks. GRACE AND DIGGS This shop is located in Artists’ Row and in addition to home decor they have a large collection of funky hats. Grabbing one of those with some over-sized sunglasses from The Magic Parlor could be a quick and quirky option if you find yourself without. CVS CVS is almost right across the street from the Magic Parlor. They have costumes and props, as most stores do in the seasonal section, though you’ll have to be quick because it gets picked over fast.
