The Periwinkle Shop

We have carved out space at WAG to revive The Periwinkle Shop, now open during classes and by appointment at 1740 Main Road, Westport Point, MA.

The original Periwinkle Shop was in operation from 1966 to 1972, April through September. WAG members sold handcrafted items and artwork. Volunteers staffed the small store, located across from the Westport Point post office.

Member Artists and Artisans are invited to sell their artwork in the shop. Contact WAG at info@westportartgroup.com if you are interested in adding your artwork or handcrafted items to the shop.
