Cotuit, a laid back town in Barnstable County on Cape Cod, has always tugged at my heart strings. It is a bucolic community that has left warm memories over the years. As a young girl my family rented a small cottage on Sea View Avenue. Summer time meant 4th of July parades, racing Cotuit Skiffs, clamming , fishing, square dancing, and family picnics on “Dead Neck/ Samsons  Island. Yes there was still time to sun worship at the “Loop Beach”. As the years passed, I would return  for a weekend visit and re -trace my steps into the past. I was always overwhelmed by the changes, but basked in the warm memories. Today I visit Cotuit on an annual basis to participate in the Cotuit Craft Fest. As I started my new venture selling men’s fine coastal wear and accessories, I could not have found a more meaningful way to represent my desire to offer quality and product  that encompasses my love for the brand I call Cotuit Casuals.
