Big on selection
The Scalliwaggs gift shop features knitted goods, quilts, T-shirts, books, and other odds-and-ends, with some of the items made by people who live in New Perlican. The food is homemade and the menu changes daily.
Pea soup and dumplings, macaroni and cheese, meatloaf with mashed potatoes, chicken soup, shepherd’s pie, honey garlic ribs with rice, and baked beans with toutons are some of the dishes that find their way and onto plates, depending on the day.
The name of the shop is a nod to her grandmother, Hannah Legge, who often used the word “scallywags” to describe the kids Susan grew up with.
Fall and winter months are a bit more relaxed for Susan, who typically closes the shop on Sundays. But summer demands a full seven-day work week, with family members pitching in to help as needed.
