Internet Retail appears to run in the family. Not only does Tom Nardone
run an interesting Internet business, but so does his Mom! That's
right, Carol Nardone, who for years owned a gift shop in the quaint new
england seaside town of Manchester by the Sea now sells model
ships on the Internet.
Carol is quite the expert at model ships and boats. Her store
sells some really
nice, large ship models. They are perfect for your mantel,
office or at your cottage. Her business is located in Gloucester
Massachusetts (that's pronounced Gloster and rhymes with imposter).
Gloucester is the largest fishing seaport in the United States
and is home to quite a large fishing fleet. It is the perfect
location for a model ship store. In that area, you have to know
your boats and Carol Nardone does.
One personal favorite is the model
lobster boat. It isn't that we like lobster boats per se, we
just like lobster. If we had a lobster boat, we would install a
butter churn on it. With lobster and butter, we could live forever.
Anyway, If you want to visit Carol Nardone's website it is: WindwardGifts.com.

would be a great place to look. You might want to pay attention
