Chatting with Cheryl Smith, Owner of Atlantic Dry GoodsPhotography By Meghan Nanan
Just a short walk from Main Street in downtown Falmouth, nestled next to Coffee Obsession, lies this unique store filled with vintage goods and one-of-a-kind treasures. Owner Cheryl Smith handpicks each of the items and even hand paints some of the furniture herself. Visit this store more than once, and you are likely to find new pieces each time.
When did Atlantic Dry Goods open?
March 4, 2017.
What occupied that space before you opened your store?
Cape Chic, a woman’s clothing store. They have since moved to Main Street.
What do you look for when choosing merchandise?
Vintage, handcrafted and unique American-made items.
What do you love most about your job?
What’s not to love! I work in a wonderful community with lovely customers and I have a “woman cave” where I paint and dream.
What were you doing before you opened Atlantic Dry Goods?
I was a design consultant for luxury custom home builders and developers. I still work in the field on occasion. I am currently midway through a project in Middleton.
What are your favorite items at the store?
I love the jewelry. I plan on expanding that department in the near future.
