This unique boutique was born 20 years ago when Taylor Brown started making headbands to keep the hair out of her face while she shellfished. Based on Cape Cod, she still makes the same headbands but the Fisherman’s Daughter Collection has grown to include clothing and other accessories. One will fall in love with her oh-so-soft certified organic fingerless shucking gloves, seaweed wrap scarves, and super soft organic clothing. Taylor Brown grew up on Cape Cod as the daughter of a Commercial Fisherman which nurtured her love of the ocean and concern for its protection.
