Tidings of Comfort & Joy
This year, Cox says that she is looking forward to the “big reveal” when Scout re-opens after closing for a week or so at the beginning of November. Paper covers the windows so no one can peek, and Scout is transformed into a Winter Wonderland, re-opening in time for Veteran’s Weekend. “There is a lot of sparkle in ornaments and jewelry, there is nature and woodland, whimsy galore and some one-of-a-kind vintage and antique treasures this year. Visitors can poke around the displays and creative vignettes, go from trees to wall decor, and just take it all in,” she explains.
Scout’s following is venturing along the same path as Cox’s previous endeavor in Concord, and with the introduction of social media channels, the dedicated and supportive client base is regularly engaged in meaningful discourse. Case in point: in response to Cox’s announcement that she was once again Europe-bound to Belgium on a hunt for the store in October, a recent comment from a fellow antique lover on Scout’s Facebook page included a bit of English slang:
Coddiwomple: (kod’e wom pel) (v.) To travel purposefully toward an as-yet-unknown destination.
Cox may not know her next destination, but the path that has led her to the sweet village of Dennis on Cape Cod, is certainly one that has been navigated with purpose and an understanding that she is exactly where she is supposed to be.
